Wasps Identification
Wasps are best compared with bees in order to provide identification. Wasps, unlike bees, will sting even if they have not been provoked making them more dangerous and more important for identification. Wasps and bees behave differently from one another, bees prefer the likes of pollen were wasps are more likely to be found around rubbish. Wasps have a wide range of foods with there diet changing through the year. During the begging of the summer they hunter for small insects to eat, during the end of the year they begin to search for rubbish. A wasps nest and a bees nest are also very different and can be used in identification. Wasps such as the yellow jackets build a nest from a wood pulp by harvesting wood and mixing it with there saliva to create there nest where bees build a nest from honey. They also differ when it comes to feeding there young. Wasps will feed there young on insects they have caught or rubbish they have found, they then chew what they have collected and then feed it to there young. Bees however, live on nectar and pollen all there lives.

Physical differences between the two for identification include bees being more hairy than wasps, bees are also larger than wasps with bees having pollen baskets on there back legs.
The sting can also be used in identification. A wasp can sting more than once as they can pull the sting back out of a person skin. A bee on the other hand losses its sting as it gets stuck in the skin and needs removing.
I hope these interesting facts and tips on identification help you distinguish between the two.
