It won’t alter! (The single exemption is in the case of a late season wasps’ nest, from mid-September onwards, where an added treatment to your attic may possibly be necessary.)
First and foremost, kindly make sure that you really do have a wasps’ nest, you’d be surprised at how many times we are called out to what’s supposed to be a wasps’ nest and it turns out to be bees, in particular solitary bees in the spring. Whenever you have a wasps’ nest you will observe numerous wasps entering and leaving from just one spot, if they’re just solitary bees they’ll be going into a whole lot of holes just about everywhere in the walls, specially airbricks and drainage holes in plastic window frames. These solitary bees are harmless and stingless and no treatment methods are available or required. As a rule of thumb you won’t have a live wasps’ nest before at the very earliest mid to late May as a result of the life cycle of the wasp. Any noted before mid-May will be bees with no doubt whatsoever. Very few insects generate anxiety as the wasp with lots of people reacting very badly to their stings. Sad to say every single year in the United Kingdom persons do die because of being stung by wasps, often after inadvertently annoying the nest.

Nest Growth throughout the seasonA wasps’ nest will start at the end of spring in most cases around early April when the queens wake up and start nest construction. In comparison to honey bees, only queens survive the winter time, the rest of the nest having died off the previous winter. The queen makes a very small nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she creates by mixing up decaying wood with saliva. This preliminary nest is about the proportions of a golf ball, within it she lays something like twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she sustains with various insects until they pupate and grow into perfectly fledged wasps. These young wasps will then assume control of nest constructing while the queen will remain inside of the nest producing eggs. This whole process will take a number of weeks and it is uncommon indeed to discover a wasps’ nest before to June. The most active stage of nest formation is generally the month of June and Blackpool wasps’ nest control always estimate that the wasping season commonly starts about the 3rd week in June. If left alone the nest continues to develop over the summer and dependent on conditions and availability to food will consist of in between five thousand – thirty thousand wasps at its maximum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside the nest they are repaid by the larvae which exude a sweet sticky substance that the wasps hunger for and subsequently this is their motivation to nurture their young. Up to around 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. Commonly a nest will generate approximately two thousand new queens. Normally these brand new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the winter months. It’s at this time when wasps are inclined to be their most troublesome. When the nest is no longer producing young, the worker wasps are losing out on their sweet fix and set out needing sweet foods. They begin feeding on fermenting fruit and as they are more or less out of work 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 substantially more difficult since when the queens emerge they will cease to return to the nest and so are not eliminated by any insecticide inside of it. At this stage of the year we have numerous accounts of individuals getting a large quantity of wasps inside of their dwellings each day, these are the new queens searching for hibernating places. Many Local Councils at this point of the season will tell enquirers to leave the nest without treatment as ‘it should disappear soon’. This is frequently in fact the worst possible thing that can be done since the queens will appear making the complete job more tricky. Once this process has started, commonly from mid-September, it is generally essential to undertake extra work, for example smoking or fogging the attic space to get rid of these queens which naturally carries additional costs. The best suggestion Blackpool wasps’ nest control can give is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it removed ahead of September and this will save you lots of hassle. Left untreated a wasps nest can last up until the first main freeze of wintertime, they survive later in to the the autumn months than some people imagine. Blackpool wasps’ nest control regularly tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into late November and December and the latest we’ve handled 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 spent, it will never be used again and which means that there is not any benefit at all in attempting to remove it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified egg laying tube and therefore only female wasps can sting but very few would be prepared to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp they are seeing. In Britain we now have three species of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent import from Europe which came here here in the 80s Dolichovespula media. There are more kinds of wasps in the UK however they tend not to trouble us as undesirable pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in Britain, generally limited to the southerly counties but Blackpool wasps’ nest control did destroy a hornets’ nest around 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 Blackpool 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 precisely the identical treatment. What governs the quantity and size of wasps’ nests is actually not the severity of the last winter but the weather in the spring. The hibernating queens can live through any amount of cold but the worst of all predicament for them is just what transpired in 2012. There was a very early warm interval for about 6 weeks from mid-February and all throughout March. This helped bring the wasp queens from hibernation ahead of time but unluckily for them it turned really cold and then there wasn’t any food available so they starved. As a consequence the summer of 2012 turned into a terrible summer for wasps.
