If you have a wasps’ nest you will notice plenty of wasps entering and leaving from one hole, if they’re solitary bees they’ll be entering a lot of holes all over the place in the walls, particularly air-bricks and weep holes in plastic window frames. These solitary bees are harmless and they do not sting and no treatments are possible or necessary. As a general guideline you can’t have a live wasps’ nest before at the very least mid to late May because of the life cycle of the wasp. Any detected before mid-May will be bees with no trace of a doubt. Few insects spark dread as the wasp with a lot of people responding very poorly to their stings. Sadly each and every year in the UK individuals do pass away as a result of of receiving a wasp sting, often after unintentionally annoying the nest.

Nest Growth throughout the seasonA wasps’ nest starts at the end of spring normally around early April when the queens wake up and commence nest building. In comparison to honey bees, only queens live through the winter time, the remainder of the nest having died off the previous winter. The queen forms a tiny nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she creates by blending rotting wood with saliva. This early nest is about the dimension of a golf ball, inside it she lays around 20 eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she feeds with various insects until they pupate and grow into fully fledged wasps. These early wasps will then assume control of nest making while the queen will stay inside the nest producing eggs. This entire process involves a few weeks and it is unusual indeed to come across a wasps’ nest prior to June. The most hectic stage of nest building is normally the month of June and Garstang wasps’ nest control always guess that the wasps’ nest season commonly starts around the third week in June. If left untreated the nest proceeds to build up over the the summer season and dependent on weather conditions and availability to food will consist of between five thousand – thirty thousand wasps at its peak. When the worker wasps feed the larvae within the nest they’re rewarded by the larvae which express a sweet sticky material which the wasps want and subsequently this is their encouragement to sustain their young. Up to approximately August time the nest makes only sterile females but as the days begin to shorten it generates its last set of larvae which are new queens and males. Normally a nest will produce around two thousand new queens. Normally these emerging queens will mate and after that hibernate for the winter time. It’s at this period when wasps are inclined to be their most bothersome. When the nest is no longer creating 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 effectively jobless they develop into a annoying pest. It is now when the majority of stings occur. It’s also the time when coping with a wasps’ nest becomes substantially more difficult since when the queens emerge they will no more return to the nest and so are not eliminated by any insecticide inside it. At this time of the year we have numerous accounts of people getting a large number of wasps within their dwellings each day, these are the new queens searching for hibernating sites. Many Local Authorities at this point of the season will advise enquirers to leave the nest with no treatment as ‘it should go away soon’. This is frequently in reality the very worst thing you can do given that the queens will appear making the total job more difficult. Once this process has commenced, commonly from mid-September, it is commonly essential to undertake supplementary work, such as smoking or fogging the attic space to destroy these queens which of course carries further expenses. The best guideline Garstang wasps’ nest control can give is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it destroyed prior to September and this will save you lots of trouble. Left alone a wasps nest can last up until the first main freeze of winter, they survive later in to the the autumn months than some people expect. Garstang wasps’ nest control regularly 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 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 accordingly there isn’t any benefit at all in making an attempt to get rid of it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a altered egg laying tube and because of this only female wasps are able to sting but not many would be prepared to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp confronting them. In The Uk we now have 3 types of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent incomer from the continent which arrived here here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more varieties of wasps in the UK however they do not bother us as unwanted pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in the British Isles, generally restricted to the southern counties but Garstang wasps’ nest control did destroy a hornets’ nest within the Knutsford area in the summer of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever encountered this far north. There is no need for Garstang wasps’ nest control to differentiate the type of wasp we’re eradicating to be able to get rid of the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a similar biology and react to precisely the same exact treatment. What controls the quantity and size of wasps’ nests is actually not the harshness of the past winter but the weather condition in the spring. The hibernating queens can survive any amount of cold but the worst of all situation for them is precisely what took place in 2012. There was a very early warm period for around 6 weeks from mid-February and throughout March. This brought the wasp queens from hibernation early but sadly for them it turned much colder and then there wasn’t any food for them so they starved. As a result the summer of 2012 became a bad summer for wasps.
