ABSTRACT
Wasp, a stinging insect related to bees and ants. There are some 20,000 species of wasps. The wasp's stinger, like that of the bee, is a modified ovipositor, or egg depositor. It is absent in the males. Unlike the bee's stinger, the wasp's is not barbed, and is not torn out of the wasp's body when it is used.
