    Ask anyone the difference between bees and wasps and they’re likely to say something like this: bees make honey, wasps don’t. 

    Setting aside the fact that the majority of bees (even within the honeybee’s family  Apidae) are solitary and do not produce honey, the assertion that wasps do not produce honey is incorrect.
