To begin with, please ensure that you actually do have a wasps’ nest, you’d be amazed at how commonly we are called out to what’s expected to be a wasps’ nest and it proves to be to be bees, in particular solitary bees in the early spring. If you have a wasps’ nest you will observe numerous wasps coming and going from one opening, if they’re just solitary bees they’ll be going into a lot of holes just about everywhere in the brickwork, in particular air-bricks and drainage holes in plastic windows. These solitary bees are not at all damaging and they can’t sting and no treatments are available or appropriate. As a general guideline you will not have a live wasps’ nest before at the very earliest late May as a result of the life cycle of the wasp. Any seen before mid-May will be bees with no trace of a doubt. Very few insects trigger worry as the wasp with a lot of people reacting very poorly to their stings. Unfortunately each and every single year in the British Isles people do die as a result of of having been stung by wasps, often after inadvertently upsetting the nest.

Nest Progress throughout the seasonA wasps’ nest commences at the end of spring frequently around early April when the queens awaken and begin nest constructing. In comparison to honey bees, only queens survive the winter time, the remainder of the colony having died off the previous winter. The queen develops a tiny nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she creates by blending decaying wood with saliva. This initial nest is approximately the size of a golf ball, inside it she lays around twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she nourishes with various insects until they pupate and hatch into perfectly fledged wasps. These fresh wasps will then take control of nest making while the queen will stay within the nest laying eggs. This entire process will take a number of weeks and it is unusual indeed to come across a wasps’ nest before to June. The most active phase of nest growth is normally in June and Altrincham wasps’ nest control always approximate that the wasping season normally starts around the third week in June. If left alone the nest carries on to build up over the the summer season and dependent on conditions and availability to food will consist of around 5000 – 30,000 wasps at its optimum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside of the nest they are repaid by the larvae which express a sweet sticky substance that the wasps crave and therefore this is their motivation to nourish their young. Up to approximately August time the nest creates only unfertile females but as the days begin to shorten it generates its last clutch of larvae which are new queens and males. In general a nest will generate around two thousand new queens. Naturally these new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the winter months. It’s at this stage when wasps have a tendency to be their most problematical. When the nest is no longer creating young, the worker wasps are missing out on their sweet fix and begin needing sweet foods. They start feeding on fermenting fruit and as they are more or less unemployed they turn into a annoying pest. It is now when the majority of stings occur. It’s also the moment when dealing with a wasps’ nest becomes significantly more complicated since when the queens come out they will no longer return back to the nest and so are not eradicated by any insecticide inside it. At this stage of the year we have countless accounts of customers getting a large amount of wasps within their properties every day, these are the new queens looking for hibernating places. Many Local Authorities at this time of the season will tell enquirers to perish naturally as ‘it should go away soon’. This is frequently in reality the very worst thing that can be done considering the fact that the queens will appear making the complete process more complicated. Once this emergence of queens has commenced, commonly from mid-September, it is normally essential to perform extra work, for instance smoking or fogging the attic to destroy these queens which of course carries supplementary costs. The best guideline Altrincham wasps’ nest control can provide is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it eradicated ahead of September and this will save you lots of problems. Left to its own devices a wasps nest can last up until the first main freeze of wintertime, they live later in to the the autumn months than some people think. Altrincham wasps’ nest control typically tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into late November and December and the latest we’ve handled an active nest was Christmas eve! When the cold weather comes the queens hibernate and all the other wasps, workers and males, die off. The nest itself is then spent, it will never be used again and for that reason there isn’t any gain at all in attempting to get rid of it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a altered egg laying tube and consequently only female wasps can sting but few would like to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp in question. In Britain we now have 3 species of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent incomer from European countries which arrived here here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more species of wasps in the UK although they don’t trouble us as unwanted pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in Britain, mainly limited to the southern counties but Altrincham wasps’ nest control did destroy a hornets’ nest within the Knutsford area in the summertime of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever seen this far north. There is no necessity for Altrincham wasps’ nest control to distinguish the variety of wasp we’re eradicating to be able to destroy the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a similar biology and react to exactly the same exact treatment. What controls the number and dimensions of wasps’ nests isn’t the harshness of the past winter but the conditions in the spring. The hibernating queens can live through any amount of cold however the worst of all scenario for them is precisely what took place in 2012. There was a remarkably early warm period for about six weeks from mid-February and throughout March. This brought the wasp queens from hibernation early on but unluckily for them it turned much colder and then there wasn’t any food for them so they starved. As a consequence the summer of 2012 was a awful summer for wasps.
