Wasps and hornets (which are actually a type of wasp) are insects that are neither bee or ant.

There are many common types of wasps that make Connecticut their home. Mud daubers, yellow jackets and several varieties of hornets all fall under the category of wasp. Many species, such as the yellow jacket and hornet are eusocial insects, meaning they live in a nest containing an egg laying queen and non-reproducing workers, much like bees.
