  1. It is interesting to note that while one ought not to underestimate bees, one can underestimate other hymenoptera. Specifically, cockroach wasps, digger wasps, cuckoo wasps, fig wasps, chalcid wasps, gall wasps, and ensign wasps may be safely underestimated. But fairyflies, spider wasps, ants, ichneumon wasps, and sawflies, like bees (including carpenter bees, honeybees, bumblebees, sweat bees, and orchard bees) must never be underestimated. Science has yet to come to a determination for yellowjackets.
