What bee is this? ...🐝


#1

Hi
I have some bees living in between the planks of wood on my outside wall. They have been there for a while now and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what type of bee they are.
The bees seem to not be aggressive and I am not sure if they live together or if the are solitary. There is not many probably max 20 which makes me think they may live independently but use the same β€œdoor” to get in and out but I am not sure one of the bees died so I took some photos.
I hope someone would be able to tell me what bee they are.
Thank you, Jaz :laughing:

I’m pretty sure that is a resin bee. I have a few nesting on my verandah.
