The wasp is a powerful insect which resembles an oversized bee in terms of shape and coloration.  However, whereas bees live in massive communities where each bee does its part to build and preserve the hive for the collective good, most wasps tend to be solitary creatures, with each adult female breeding and living independently.  Many solitary wasps are parasitoidal, meaning that they lay their eggs on or in the larvae of other insects.  The wasp larvae overpower and eat the host larvae.  Another way in which wasps differ from bees is the function of their stinger.  Whereas most bees leave the stinger in their victim, wasps retain their stinger, allowing them to strike repeatedly instead of only once.  They are fascinating but dangerous insects.

Why worry about messing around with a live wasp when you can get a real one already prepared for you to examine anyways? Students and teachers needn’t worry, this wasp won’t sting! This is a great specimen of a REAL wasp mounted in a small clear acrylic block. Great for looking at details under a microscope, or for having in the classroom, this is a great educational resource for the young science student or for the serious entomologist! They’re small enough that you can even keep one in your pocket as a good luck charm if you have an insatiable passion for insects.

5 star rating  The wasps are great, glad I found them here!
Jeanette Tremblay from Newtown Square, PA
Loved these little guys, I gave them to my co-workers, because our boss is always coming down to let the "wasps out" on us when he gets nervous about some of the things we are working on. Perfect!
