The honey bees patiukan, tamo-ing tamusan and the wasps tabu-uan, lapinid, baga-baga, all have grubs. Those are their offspring.

Many children eat not only the larvae of the various honey bees but even the larvae of various wasps and don't bother to cook them. These larvae are reportedly very good bait for fishing.]
