Most Melissodes spp. are solitary ground-nesters. However, there are some species that nest communally with several individuals using one burrow. Females line each brood cell with a wax-like material that she secretes. Each cell is provisioned with a nectar and pollen mixture and a single egg. Larvae hatch and turn into pupae. After a period of inactivity, adult bees emerge.
