Though honeybees get most of the press coverage, the majority of bee species are solitary bees. They gather pollen, build nests, and lay eggs on their own, without the help of a hive. (Some might live in groups, but they won't have a social structure with a queen or workers.) These bees are hugely important pollinators for many native flowers and plants.
