Bees, Wasps, Hornets, etc

Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants. Bees are within the superfamily Apoidea. The term wasp is typically defined as any insect of the order Hymenoptera and suborder Apocrita that is neither a bee nor an ant. Hornets are the largest eusocial wasps. The true hornets make up the genus Vespa.
