Sapygidae (Sapygid Wasps)
These wasps invade bee nests, where the larvae feed on the pollen and nectar supplies of the host insect. Sapygid wasps are usually black, with white or yellow markings. The adults obtain nectar from flowers, but they don't gather any pollen or nectar for their larvae, unlike bees. They are not common.
