First of all, please make sure that you actually do have a wasps’ nest, you’d be astounded at how many times we are called out to what’s meant to be a wasps’ nest and it proves to be to be bees, particularly solitary bees in the early spring. Whenever you have a wasps’ nest you will observe a lot of wasps entering and leaving from just one spot, if they’re solitary bees they’ll be entering many of holes all over the place in the walls, 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 required. As a general guideline you can’t have a live wasps’ nest until at the very earliest mid to late May as a result of the life cycle of the wasp. Any noticed before mid-May will be bees with no doubt whatsoever. Very few insects spark concern as the wasp with lots of people reacting very badly to their stings. Unfortunately every year in the UK people do die as a result of of being stung by wasps, often after accidentally annoying the nest.

Over almost all of the summertime getting rid of a wasps’ nest is mostly a clear-cut matter of treating it using a small amount of insecticide and the returning wasps circulate it about the insides of the nest, inside of an hour or so the rest of the colony is dead.

Nest Growth throughout the summerA wasps’ nest starts at the end of spring commonly around April when the queens wake up and begin nest building. In comparison to honey bees, only queens live through the winter months, the rest of the nest having died off the previous winter. The queen develops a miniature nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she makes by mixing rotting wood with saliva. This early nest is about the shape of a golf ball, within it she lays roughly 20 eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she sustains with various insects until they pupate and grow into perfectly fledged wasps. These juvenile wasps will then assume control of nest constructing while the queen will remain inside of the nest laying eggs. This complete process involves a few weeks and it’s unusual indeed to find a wasps’ nest prior to June. The busiest phase of nest formation is usually the month of June and Chorley wasps’ nest control always calculate that the wasps’ nest season generally starts around the third week in June. If left alone the nest proceeds to build over the the summer months and dependent on weather conditions and availability to food will consist of around 5000 – 30,000 wasps at its peak. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside of the nest they’re repaid by the larvae which express a sweet sticky substance that the wasps desire and therefore this is their encouragement to sustain their young. Up to approximately August time the nest makes only unfertile females but as the days begin to draw in it creates its final set of larvae which are new queens and males. Frequently 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 are inclined to be their most bothersome. When the nest is no longer creating young, the worker wasps are missing their sweet fix and begin needing sweet foods. They begin feeding on rotting fruit and as they are effectively out of work they develop into a annoying pest. It is now when the majority of stings occur. It’s also the time when dealing with a wasps’ nest becomes considerably more complicated since when the queens emerge they will no longer return back to the nest and so are not killed by any pesticide within it. At this time of the year we have many stories of people getting a large quantity of wasps inside of their homes on a daily basis, these are the new queens looking for hibernating places. Many Local Councils at this point of the season will advise people to leave the nest with no treatment as ‘it should disappear soon’. This is frequently in reality the very worst thing that can be done since the queens will emerge making the whole job more tricky. Once this process has started, generally from mid-September, it is commonly recommended to perform supplementary work, for instance smoking or fogging the loft to eliminate these queens which naturally carries additional charges. The best recommendation Chorley wasps’ nest control can provide is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it eradicated prior to September and this will save you lots of trouble. Left to its own devices a wasps nest can survive up until the first main freeze of winter, they live later in to the the autumn months than some people imagine. Chorley wasps’ nest control normally 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 winter 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 as a result there isn’t any advantages at all in attempting to get rid of it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a altered egg laying tube and for that reason only female wasps can sting but not many would like to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp they are seeing. In Great Britain we now have 3 variations of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent import from European countries which came here here in the 80s Dolichovespula media. There are more varieties of wasps in Britain however they do not bother us as unwanted pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in The Uk, mainly limited to the southerly counties but Chorley 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 come across this far north. There is no need for Chorley wasps’ nest control to distinguish the kind 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 precisely the identical treatment. What controls the quantity and dimensions of wasps’ nests is actually not the harshness of the previous winter but the weather in the spring. The hibernating queens can endure any amount of cold but the worst of all scenario for them is precisely what occurred in 2012. There was a remarkably early warm period for about six weeks from mid-February and through March. This helped bring the wasp queens from hibernation ahead of time but unfortunately 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 came to be a awful summer for wasps.
