About ½-inch long, honey bees have slender, slightly fuzzy abdomens that are pointed at the tip, and they have an obvious striping pattern.


Bumblebees are bigger, pudgier, furrier and have rounded tips to their abdomens, and they don’t have many stripes.


Wasps and hornets are similar in size and color, but they have smooth, narrow abdomens with no hair.
