I am not sure why you

I am not sure why you labelled this a 'social bee'. It is a solitary - though confusingly they may nest in large aggregations. Our 'social insects' are the bumble and honey bees, yellow-jacket wasps and the ants - those with colonies with workers. Elsewhere, add termites.

Thanks for your comments. I'd

Thanks for your comments. I'd labelled it a social bee as I encountered 3 large groups in a short period of time and thought it better to have something other than just 'bee'. I'll edit the title.
