Wasps can be played in many different ways depending on the board state and your technology choices.

In early game you can use Wasps as a harassment unit with jump drive and mobile beacon. It's very effective if the enemy has holes in his defense. Later on you can add Rhinos in front of them to power through the defenses or just switch to defensive formation and jump drive the wasps back and tech shields for them and use them as meat shields.

You can use them as your main damage deal unit as they deal insane amount of damage with good item and ground specialization. They are very squishy though and you need to protect them by throwing something like Rhinos in front of them. The key in this strategy is to get early levels on the Wasps so they are a menace with items. In later rounds you can't block damage coming to them with front line units and the only way is to go elite marksmen/range on them to keep them safe.

Most often Wasps are just used as meat shields. They are good vs leveled Marksmen and Melting Points in particular. One good trick is also to use them to block sentry missiles. The missiles have a big splash radius and if you have clumped up ground units who would all die, you can tank the missile with wasps and the splash will hit only air units.
