Nest Development through the seasonA wasps’ nest commences at the end of spring usually around early April when the queens wake up and begin nest construction. In contrast to honey bees, only queens survive the wintertime, the rest of the workers having died off the previous winter. The queen develops a tiny nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she produces by mixing up decaying wood with saliva. This preliminary nest is about the proportions of a golf ball, inside it she lays somewhere around twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she sustains with various grubs until they pupate and grow into perfectly fledged wasps. These new wasps will then take control of nest making while the queen will remain within the nest producing eggs. This complete process will require a number of weeks and it really is uncommon indeed to discover a wasps’ nest before to June. The most active stage of nest growth is typically the month of June and Blackburn wasps’ nest control always approximate that the wasping season usually starts around the 3rd week in June. If left untreated the nest carries on to build over the summer and based on weather and accessibility to food will contain between 5000 – thirty thousand wasps at its maximum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside of the nest they are repaid by the larvae which release a sweet sticky substance which the wasps crave and therefore this is their encouragement to raise their young. Up to approximately August time the nest makes only sterile females but as the days begin to shorten it generates its final set of larvae which are new queens and males. Normally a nest will create up to two thousand new queens. Normally these brand-new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the wintertime. It’s at this stage when wasps tend to be their most problematical. When the nest is no longer generating young, the worker wasps are lacking their sweet fix and set out needing sweet foods. They start feeding on rotting fruit and as they are in essence unemployed they turn into a annoying pest. It is now when nearly all stings occur. It’s also the moment when dealing with a wasps’ nest becomes substantially more complicated since when the queens come out they will cease to return back to the nest and so are not eliminated by any insecticide inside it. At this stage of the year we have numerous accounts of customers getting a large quantity of wasps within their dwellings every single day, these are the new queens searching for hibernating places. Many Local Authorities at this point of the season will tell enquirers to leave the nest without treatment as ‘it should go away soon’. This is often actually the very worst thing that can be done because the queens will emerge making the total process more complicated. Once this process has begun, generally from mid-September, it is commonly necessary to carry out extra work, such as smoking or fogging the attic to get rid of these queens which obviously carries additional costs. The best recommendation Blackburn wasps’ nest control can give is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it destroyed ahead of September and this will save you lots of hassle. Left alone a wasps nest can endure up until the first main freeze of wintertime, they live later in to the the autumn months than some people expect. Blackburn wasps’ nest control regularly tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into early winter and the latest we’ve taken care of an live 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 exhausted, it will never be used again and which means that there isn’t any advantages at all in making an effort to remove it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified ovipositor and therefore only female wasps can sting but very few would like to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp in question. In The United Kingdom we now have three types of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent incomer from European countries which established itself here in the 80s Dolichovespula media. There are more varieties of wasps in the UK however they do not bother us as undesirable pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in Britain, largely limited to the southern counties but Blackburn wasps’ nest control did cope with a hornets’ nest around the Knutsford area in the summertime of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever found this far north. There is no necessity for Blackburn wasps’ nest control to differentiate the species of wasp we’re dealing with to be able to eliminate the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a similar biology and react to exactly the identical treatment. What controls the number and size of wasps’ nests is not the harshness of the preceding winter but the local weather in the spring. The hibernating queens can endure any amount of cold however the worst of all scenario for them is just what transpired in 2012. There was a very early warm interval for around 6 weeks from mid-February and all throughout March. This brought the wasp queens from hibernation early but regrettably for them it turned cold and wet and then there wasn’t any food available so they starved. As a consequence the summer of 2012 was a terrible summer for wasps.
