Less familiar, the suborder Symphyta includes the sawflies and wood wasps, which differ from the Apocrita by having a broad connection between the thorax and abdomen. Also, Symphyta larvae are mostly herbivorous and "caterpillarlike", whereas those of Apocrita are largely predatory or parasitic.

Most familiar wasps belong to the Aculeata, a division of the Apocrita, whose ovipositors are modified into a venomous stinger. Aculeata also contains ants and bees. In this sense, the species called "velvet ants" (Mutillidae) are actually wasps.

A narrower meaning of the term wasp is any member of the Aculeate family Vespidae. This includes the yellowjackets (Vespula, Dolichovespula spp.) and hornets (Vespa spp.).

Characteristics

The following characteristics are present in most wasps:

  • Two pairs of wings (exception: female Mutillidae)
  • A stinger (only present in females because it derives from the ovipositor)
  • Few or no hairs (in contrast to bees); exception: Mutillidae
  • Predators or parasitoids, mostly on other insects; some species of Pompilidae, such as the tarantula hawk, specialize in using spiders as a host

Wasps are critically important in natural biocontrol. Almost every pest insect species has a wasp species that is predator or parasite upon it. Wasps are also increasingly used in agricultural pest control.

Families

  • Chrysididae - cuckoo wasps
  • Crabronidae
  • Mutillidae - velvet ants
  • Orussidae, and Syntexidae
  • Pompilidae - spider wasps
  • Rhopalosomatidae - rhopalosomatid wasps
  • Sapygidae - club-horned wasps
  • Scoliidae - scoliid wasps
  • Sierolomorphidae - sierolomorphid wasps
  • Sphecidae - digger wasps, e.g. the Cicada killer wasp
  • Tiphiidae - flower wasps
  • Vespidae - yellowjackets, hornets, paper wasps.
  • Xiphydriidae
