What’s the difference between yellow jackets, wasps and bees?



  1. 0 Votes

    The yellow jacket is a kind of wasp located in North America. In other English-speaking countries, yellow jackets are simply called wasps. However, because they look similar to honey bees, they are often confused with such insects in the U.S. All kinds of wasps are predators, and along with the honey bee, they are members of the Vespidae family. However wasps differ from bees because they do not have hair, while honey bees are also hairy bees!

    The Yellowjacket is actually a type of wasp (along with hornets). The Yellowjacket is black with bright yellow stripes, and have two longs legs that hang down during flight. Also, Yellowjackets are aggressive and have a lance-like stinger with small barbs and typically sting repeatedly.

    Honeybees and Bumblebees are considered to be in the actual “bee family.” Honeybees are covered with tan-brown dense hair on their bodies and have flattened hairy hind legs used to carry pollen. Bees are generally more gentle than wasps, and only attack when provoked.
