Bees vs.Wasps, What’s the Difference?January 23rd, 2015
Some may be unaware of the differences between a bee and a wasp, and with an appearance that is near identical, it is easy to see why.
However, when we get down to it there are many differences between the two.
Let’s take a look at our chart below to learn more:
Bees are less aggressive. Most bees will die after one sting.
|Wasps are more aggressive by nature. They can sting multiple times and not die.|
Bees are pollinators so they eat honey and beeswax.
Wasps are predators so they prey upon other pest species.
Bees are long and fat with 2 wings and bright colors. They have a hairy body and legs.
Wasps are long and thin and have a smooth body and legs.
|Hives||Bees will create hives in a geometric wax hive.|
Wasps will make their hive in paper nests.
