Wasps belong to the order Hymenoptera, along with bees and ants, making it one of the larger groups. There are some 15,000 species in this group in Australia. Among wasps are a number of both predatory and parasitic pests.
Some are solitary while others are quite social, forming complex societies that involve a high degree of communication. Eggs of the parasitic species are usually laid in or on the host, while foliage eater’s eggs are laid on plants. In the more socially structured groups, the eggs are tended in nests by workers castes.
