A wasp is any insect of the order Hymenoptera and suborder Apocrita that is neither a bee nor an ant.Almost every pest insect species has at least one wasp species that preys upon it or parasitizes it, making wasps critically important in natural control of their numbers, or natural biocontrol. Parasitic wasps are increasingly used in agricultural pest control as they prey mostly on pest insects and have little impact on crops.

Did you know,  That 12,500 of an estimated 22,000 species of Ants have been classified world wide. And they evolved from wasp like ancestors between 110-130 million years ago.

Termites are a group of eusocial insects that, until recently, were classified at the taxonomic rank of order Isoptera, but are now accepted as the infraorder Isoptera, of the cockroach order Blattodea. While termites are commonly known, especially in Australia, as "white ants," they are not closely related to the ants.
Like ants, and some bees and wasps — all of which are placed in the separate order Hymenoptera — termites divide labor among castes, produce overlapping generations and take care of young collectively. Termites mostly feed on dead plant material, generally in the form of wood, leaf litter, soil, or animal dung, and about 10% of the estimated 4,000 species (about 3,106 taxonomically known) are economically significant as pests that can cause serious structural damage to buildings, crops or plantation forests. Termites are major detritivores, particularly in the subtropical and tropical regions, and their recycling of wood and other plant matter is of considerable ecological importance.
As eusocial insects, termites live in colonies that, at maturity, number from several hundred to several million individuals. Termites communicate during a variety of behavioral activities with signals. Colonies use decentralised, self-organised systems of activity guided by swarm intelligence which exploit food sources and environments unavailable to any single insect acting alone. A typical colony contains nymphs (semimature young), workers, soldiers, and reproductive individuals of both sexes, sometimes containing several egg-laying queens.

Most people call Termites 'White Ants' this is something im trying to change as termites have no link to ants at all
 termites belong to the order Isoptera and ants belong the order hymenoptera the reason i bring this up. Lately i have had a few clients talk to me about white ants and termites as two different species
 and were shocked when i explained that 'white ant' is basically slang for termites which is why i like to only ever call them termites so when im talking prevention and treatment options my customers are always aware  and understand exactly what is going on.
