We've seen flies, especially Syrphidae, presented as honey bees in advertisements. I saw this pest control advertisement in a Turkish newspaper from 1936. Flies ("sinekler") get the blame... but the creature climbing the skyscraper on the left and the one with the stinger on the right look like Hymenoptera to me.
