Do wasps pollinate plants like bees do?

         Wasps do pollinate plants but they are not as efficient as bees. Bees are covered with fuzzy hairs, which makes pollen more likely to stick to their bodies. 

         In the tropics, fig wasps pollinate almost 1,000 different species of fig. To attract pollinating wasps, some orchid species mimic female wasps, and even release a wasp mating pheromone. Another orchid species releases the chemicals given off by plants that are being eaten by insects, making the wasps think there are caterpillars nearby.
