      Bees with reduced wing area and high asymmetry produced lower maximum wingtip velocity than bees with intact or symmetric wings, which caused a greater impairment in maximal flight capacity. These results demonstrate that the magnitude and type of wing wear affects maximal aerodynamic power production and, likely, the control of hovering flight. To tell the difference between wasp and bee species, examine their bodies and habits. Wasps, hornets and yellowjackets have slender, smooth bodies while bees have "plumper", hairier bodies. Wasps may sting multiple times, but bees can only sting once. Wasps are predatory; bees gather pollen.
