Four-Toothed Mason Wasp

Four-toothed Mason wasp

Mason wasps are beneficial because they feed on caterpillars that are agricultural and garden pests. Both males and females can sting, although the males lack true stingers and basically poke more than sting. They're very passive, however, and rarely sting unless they're provoked.

The female's stinger is more intended to paralyze caterpillars (although it can be quite painful to humans, as well). The males' stings are not very painful because they lack not only true stingers, but also venom.
