They are both insects although one is social in many species, but their life-cycle is otherwise very similar - egg, grub, pupa, adult. Depending on species, one cycle can be from a few weeks to many months in either case. More details depends a great deal on precisely what species you are considering as differences in life cycle between some bee species are as great as between some bees and butterflies. they are both insects that pass through metamorphosis, but then all insects go through metamorphosis.
