To begin with, kindly make certain that you really do have a wasps’ nest, you’d be astonished at how commonly 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 early spring. When you have a wasps’ nest you will see loads of wasps entering and leaving from a single opening, if they are solitary bees they will be going into a lot of holes almost everywhere in the brickwork, specially air-bricks and drainage holes in pvc window frames. These solitary bees are unhazardous and they cannot sting and no treatments are available or appropriate. As a guideline you will not have an active wasps’ nest until at the very least mid to late May as a result of the life cycle of the wasp. Any observed before mid-May will be bees with no shadow of a doubt. Few insects arouse fear as the wasp with a lot of people reacting very poorly to their stings. Unfortunately every single year in the British Isles persons do pass away as a result of of being stung by wasps, often after inadvertently annoying the nest.

Nest Progress through the summerA wasps’ nest starts at the end of spring usually around early April when the queens awaken and begin nest building. In contrast to honey bees, only queens live through the winter months, the rest of the colony having died off the previous winter. The queen builds a little nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she makes by blending decaying wood with saliva. This initial nest is roughly the dimensions of a golf ball, inside it she lays somewhere around twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she nurtures with various insects until they pupate and grow into perfectly fledged wasps. These juvenile wasps will then take 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’s uncommon indeed to discover a wasps’ nest before to June. The most active phase of nest development is generally in June and Bolton wasps’ nest control always calculate that the wasps’ nest season generally starts about the third week in June. If left alone the nest continues to build over the summertime and dependent on weather conditions and accessibility to food will contain anywhere between 5000 – thirty thousand wasps at its peak. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside the nest they are repaid by the larvae which release a sweet sticky material that the wasps long for and therefore this is their encouragement to sustain their young. Up to around August time the nest makes only unfertile females but as the days begin to draw in it makes its final clutch of larvae which are new queens and males. In most cases a nest will create approximately 2,000 new queens. Normally these brand new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the winter months. It’s at this period when wasps have a tendency to be their most problematical. When the nest is no longer creating young, the worker wasps are losing out on their sweet fix and begin needing sweet foods. They start feeding on rotting fruit and as they are in essence out of work they transform 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 noticeably more complicated since when the queens emerge they will no more return back to the nest and so are not killed by any pesticide inside it. At this stage of the year we have numerous stories of individuals getting a large quantity of wasps inside of their properties every day, these are the new queens looking for hibernating sites. Many Local Councils at this time of the season will tell enquirers to leave the nest be as ‘it should disappear soon’. This is frequently in fact the very worst thing you can do since the queens will appear making the whole process more complicated. Once this emergence of queens has commenced, typically from mid-September, it is usually essential to undertake additional work, such as smoking or fogging the loft to get rid of these queens which of course carries extra costs. The best suggestion Bolton wasps’ nest control can provide is when you have got a wasps’ nest get it removed before September and this will save you lots of problems. Left untreated a wasps nest can last up until the first main freeze of winter, they live later in to the the autumn months than some people expect. Bolton wasps’ nest control normally tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into late November and December and the latest we’ve taken care of an live nest was Christmas eve! When the winter comes the queens hibernate and all the other wasps, workers and males, die off. The nest itself is then exhausted, it will never be made use of again and consequently there isn’t any gain at all in struggling to get rid of it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified egg laying tube and consequently only female wasps are able to sting but very few would be prepared to gamble on guessing the right sex of the wasp confronting them. In The Uk we now have three species of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent import from the continent which arrived here here in the 80s Dolichovespula media. There are more kinds of wasps in Britain however they do not trouble us as undesirable pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in The Uk, generally confined to the southerly counties but Bolton wasps’ nest control did deal with a hornets’ nest within 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 Bolton wasps’ nest control to recognize the variety of wasp we’re dealing with to be able to get rid of the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a similar biology and react to precisely the identical treatment. What governs the number and dimensions of wasps’ nests is not the severity of the past winter but the conditions in the spring. The hibernating queens can endure any amount of cold but the worst of all scenario for them is just what transpired in 2012. There was a remarkably early warm interval for around 6 weeks from mid-February and throughout March. This helped bring the wasp queens from hibernation ahead of time but regrettably for them it turned cold and wet and then there wasn’t any food available so they starved. As a result the summer of 2012 became a terrible summer for wasps.
