Bees & Wasps
There are a few essential differences between a wasp and a bee. Most wasps feed on insects, spiders and other animal matter. Most bees, on the other hand, feed on pollen and nectar (although there are a few parasitic species of bee). Bees are nearly always “hairy” with short legs, which assists in their pollen-collecting activity. Wasps typically have smooth, slender bodies that are “pinched” at the waist and have longer legs than bees.
