From the comments to that last linked article on wasps:

Bees were once wasps but diverged from them during the Cretacious period when flowering plants appeared in nature. In effect, they made peace with the natural world choosing a diet of flower pollen over that of their former hunter scavenger selves. The beginnings of ‘flower power’. Peace to the bees.
