Many of us are unaware of the difference between bees and wasps and consider both of them equally harmful. However, this is not the case. Although they may look similar in color, the physical and behavioral characteristics of bees and wasps are different. Bees are typically less aggressive than wasps because once they sting you they die, unlike wasps who can keep stinging you over and over. There are particular species of bees that can sting more than once.
Unlike it's pollinating cousin the honey bee, the wasp is a predator that could be social or solitary depending on the species. The hives used by these Hymenoptera also differ greatly. Honeybees live in geometric wax hives and wasps live in papery or even mud looking nests that can even be built on a completely flat, vertical serface.
