Definition of vespid in English:
Any wasp of the family Vespidae, including yellow jackets and hornets.
- The two types of stinging insects are vespids (wasps, yellow jackets, hornets, and fire ants) and aphids (honeybees and bumblebees).
- Furthermore, the inclusion of only two independent origins of sociality (in honeybees and vespid wasps) limited the conclusions that could be drawn concerning the effect of sociality on molecular evolution.
- Although vespids are beneficial to mother nature by controlling the population of other bugs -- and by being food to other animals -- they can be a real nuisance.
