Bee or Wasp - What’s the Difference?
4. What do the insects eat?
A bee’s menu consists of pollen and nectar from flowers. Wasps and hornets are sneakier: they also eat sweet fruits and drinks as well as leftover food, and eat other insects. So if you see pollen (little yellow clumps) on the legs of a black and yellow striped insect: it’s most probably a bee!
