Bee Vs Wasp
Ever wonder what the difference is between bees and wasps? Here is a great picture and some pointers. Honey Bees With bees its about the numbers you will most likely see a stream of coming and going (ever heard the term busy as a bee?) If you see hundreds it's most likely bees. Bees are fuzzy with hairs and pollen sacks on their legs (sometimes). Bees can be black with yellow stripes as the Caniolan bees or yellow and black to almost all yellow. But never all black or red. Wasps and Hornets Wasps are typically not fuzzy, they have longer wings and bodies. Wasps also do not make wax comb but create nests that look like paper or burrow in the ground. Wasps are also bigger and brood usually has white caps and is exposed.
