    I second that. I am a honey consumer in daily bases.

    Do wasps pollinate same as bees ?

    Seems that almost any animal which regularly comes into contact with flowering plants , will act as a pollinator. But IMO, the honeybee is the only insect that lives in a pure symbiotic state with flowering plants. IOW, is feeds exclusively on flowers, while other insects are more opportunistic in their sources of food and do not depend exclusively on flowering plants for survival.

    I like bees, but not wasps.
