No, the bees don’t just respawn in the empty beehive after you kill them. The bees naturally spawn in a group of 3 in one beehive in biomes. The beehive doesn’t act like a monster spawner, but is actually spawned along with 3 bees. Once you kill them they don’t return.
Although it’s still possible to get bees from surrounding beehives [if any] to populate the empty one. In case you don’t have any other beehives with bees around, try growing any tree sapling using bonemeal with any flower just beside it.
There’s a small chance of getting a beehive along with bees spawned with the tree sapling if you keep following the process.
