Insect societies Both in complexity of behaviour and learning capacity, solitary wasps and bees are the equals of social wasps or honeybees.

Social insects, however, have developed a division of labour in which the members must do the work required at the proper time. When one thinks of social insects it is usually of the very organized (eusocial) groups such as termites and ants, and the eusocial species of bees and wasps, which have highly complex societies.

This book is an important reference to the literature of other, less complex, social arrangements found in many groups of insects and other arthropods.
