Nest Growth through the summerA wasps’ nest begins at the end of spring normally around April when the queens wake up and begin the process of nest building. As opposed to honey bees, only queens live through the winter, the remainder of the workers having died off the previous winter. The queen forms a little nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she makes by mixing decaying wood with saliva. This initial nest is about the shape of a golf ball, inside it she lays around twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she feeds with various grubs until they pupate and hatch into perfectly fledged wasps. These fresh wasps will then assume control of nest building while the queen will remain inside the nest producing eggs. This complete process will require a number of weeks and it really is unusual indeed to find a wasps’ nest prior to June. The most hectic period of nest development is generally in June and Cheshire wasps’ nest control always approximate that the wasping season normally starts about the third week in June. If left to its own devices the nest continues to grow over the summer time and depending on weather and accessibility to food will hold between 5000 – thirty thousand wasps at its peak. When the worker wasps feed the larvae within the nest they are rewarded by the larvae which release a sweet sticky substance which the wasps desire and subsequently this is their motivation to feed their young. Up to around August time the nest forms only unfertile females but as the days begin to shorten it will make its last clutch of larvae which are new queens and males. In general a nest will generate around two thousand new queens. Naturally these brand-new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the wintertime. It’s at this time when wasps tend to be their most bothersome. 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 fermenting fruit and as they are more or less out of work they transform into a nuisance 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 eradicated by any pesticide inside of it. At this stage of the year we have countless stories of individuals getting a large amount of wasps inside of their homes everyday, these are the new queens looking for hibernating sites. Many Local Authorities at this point of the season will advise enquirers to leave the nest untreated as ‘it should go away soon’. This is frequently actually the worst possible thing to do considering that the queens will appear making the complete job more complicated. Once this producing of queens has begun, typically from mid-September, it is usually essential to carry out extra work, for example smoking or fogging the attic to get rid of these queens which normally carries additional charges. The best suggestion Cheshire wasps’ nest control can give is when you have got a wasps’ nest get it removed before September and this will save you lots of trouble. Left to its own devices a wasps nest can endure up until the first main freeze of winter, they survive later in to the the autumn months than some people think. Cheshire wasps’ nest control usually tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into early winter and the latest we’ve dealt with an live nest was Christmas eve! When the cold comes the queens hibernate and all the other wasps, workers and males, die out. The nest itself is then spent, it will never be made use of again and subsequently there is not any gain at all in making an effort to get rid of it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified egg laying tube and as a consequence only female wasps are able to sting but few would be prepared to gamble on guessing the right sex of the wasp they are seeing. 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 invader from Europe which came here here in the 80s Dolichovespula media. There are more types of wasps in Britain however they do not trouble us as unwanted pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in The Uk, mostly confined to the southerly counties but Cheshire wasps’ nest control did handle a hornets’ nest within the Knutsford area in the summer of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever experienced this far north. There is no necessity for Cheshire wasps’ nest control to identify the type of wasp we’re dealing with to be able to get rid of the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a very similar biology and react to absolutely the same treatment. What controls the quantity and dimensions of wasps’ nests isn’t the harshness of the past winter but the weather conditions in the spring. The hibernating queens can survive any amount of cold however the worst of all circumstance for them is precisely what happened in 2012. There was a remarkably early warm period for about 6 weeks from mid-February and all throughout March. This brought the wasp queens from hibernation ahead of time but unluckily 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 turned into a bad summer for wasps.
