Both wasps and hornets can kill you but wasps are more aggressive though less common, really it depends on your personal health and the ratio of hornets to wasps like if there are hundreds of hornets and ten wasps, hornets are a bigger problem and if there are hundreds of wasps and ten hornets wasps are a bigger problem. personally I'd rather have a hornet after me than a wasp. Bees are great though they don't sting unless you hurt them and they are simply cool to have around.

Technically all hornets are wasps. They tend to have fatter abdomens compared to wasps and can be more aggressive as well.

Many people confuse bees with wasps. One of the most significant differences between the two is their eating habit: Bees consume plant nectar, but wasps feed mostly on small insects. Wasps do not have as many hairs on their body as bees because they have no need to use hair to transport pollen. Both female bees and wasps have a venomous sting; wasps usually sting to stun prey, and bees use a sting as a defense mechanism for their hives. While bees usually die after stinging, wasps and hornets can sting multiple times.

Yes. Wasps, bees and hornets all have a venom is is used for defense, or for killing other insects for food.
