Wasps are flying insects related to bees and ants. There are several species of wasps, found in many parts of the world.

Appearance

Wasps can come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. Most wasps are similar to bees. A wasp is typically half the length of an adult male human's thumb and its body is yellow with black stripes. Wasps are often mistaken for bees, but there are ways to distinguish the two from one another.

  • Wasps are generally more slender, with a "wasp-waist".
  • Segments of a wasp are more prominent to that of a bee.
  • Bees appear to have hair while wasps don't.

Behavior

Wasps are generally more aggressive than bees because they are hunters/scavengers rather than specialist nectar-feeders. They have catholic tastes, and constantly search for high-protein edibles among human garbage while bees just look for flowers, which they pollinate while collecting their nectar food. Wasps are also more likely to sting a human unprovoked and unlike a bee, a wasp is capable of stinging a human multiple times.
