It seems that we have a collection of aggregations of sleeping bees in Bugguide. I have a picture of two sleeping carpenter bees that I never thought of submitting to Bugguide; maybe I will.
I am sure that there are more pictures and I would like to see them. I would also want to know more about this behavior. I understand that there is an aggregation pheromone.
There are also some images of aggregations of wasps.
And here is a group of Braconids
Not quite an article but it eventually may become one so it is better to keep it here.
