This Lesser paper wasp is on a jackfruit.

From Wikipedia
Class: Insecta
Order: Hymenoptera
Suborder: Apocrita
Superfamily: Vespoidea
Family: Vespidae
Subfamily: Polistinae (paper wasps)
Species: Parapolybia varia
Common Name: Lesser paper wasp (แตนใต้ใบไม้เล็ก)

Unlike yellowjackets and hornets, which can be very aggressive, polistine paper wasps will generally only attack if they themselves or their nest are threatened. Paper wasps feed on nectar, and other insects, including caterpillars, flies, and beetle larvae, and they are often considered to be beneficial by gardeners.
