An intimidating Order of insects to approach are the Hymenoptera. Not because of any sting, but because of the sheer diversity of species out there. There are around 9000 species of wasp in Great Britain alone, although thankfully there are many fewer bee, ant or sawfly species. But the idea of a full future garden list seems at this stage well beyond our grasp and ability. However we strongly expect our list of Hymenoptera to continue to grow as we get better at recognising some of the more common and easy to identify species.
