Wasps, however, are not protected. There are 4 common wasps and 3 primary bee varieties in New Jersey – Honeybees, Bumble Bees, and Carpenter Bees. Honeybees are often gold with brown stripes, are just about half an inch long, and have little hairs all over their bodies. While bees are capable of stinging, this is rare. If you’ve been stung, it’s more likely to be by a wasp – yellow jackets in particular.
