Hymenoptera is one of the largest orders of insects, comprising the sawflies, wasps, bees, and ants. There are over 130,000 species described with many others remaining to be[1]. The name refers to the heavy wings of the insects, and is derived from the Ancient Greek ὑμήν (humen): membrane and πτερόν (pteron): wing. The hindwings are connected to the forewings by a series of hooks called hamuli.

Females typically have a special ovipositor for inserting eggs into hosts or otherwise inaccessible places. The ovipositor is often modified into a stinger. The young develop through complete metamorphosis that is, they have a worm-like larval stage and an inactive pupal stage before they mature .
