In the first place, please 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 meant to be a wasps’ nest and it proves to be to be bees, particularly solitary bees in the the spring months. If you have a wasps’ nest you will see plenty of wasps entering and leaving from one entrance, if they are solitary bees they’ll be going into a whole lot of holes everywhere in the brickwork, specially airbricks and drainage holes in plastic window frames. These solitary bees are unhazardous and they cannot sting and no remedies are available or appropriate. As a rough yardstick you won’t have a live wasps’ nest before at the very minimum late May as a result of the life cycle of the wasp. Any spotted before mid-May will be bees with no shadow of a doubt. Very few insects trigger worry as the wasp with a lot of people responding very seriously to their stings. Regrettably each and every year in the UK persons do pass away because of receiving a wasp sting, often after unintentionally annoying the nest.

Nest Development throughout the summerA wasps’ nest begins at the end of spring typically around April when the queens wake up and start nest building. As opposed to honey bees, only queens live through the cold months of winter, the remainder of the nest having died off the previous winter. The queen forms a little nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she creates by mixing decaying wood with saliva. This preliminary nest is approximately the size of a golf ball, inside it she lays something like twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she nurtures with various grubs until they pupate and grow into fully fledged wasps. These early wasps will then take control of nest developing while the queen will remain inside the nest laying eggs. This whole process involves a few weeks and it is uncommon indeed to come across a wasps’ nest prior to June. The most active stage of nest building is generally the month of June and Greater Manchester wasps’ nest control always guess that the wasps’ nest season generally starts about the third week in June. If left alone the nest continues to grow over the summertime and depending on weather and availability to food will hold between five thousand – 30,000 wasps at its maximum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae within the nest they’re repaid by the larvae which exude a sweet sticky material that the wasps long for and subsequently this is their motivation to feed their young. Up to around August time the nest makes only unfertile females but as the days begin to draw in it will make its last clutch of larvae which are new queens and males. Frequently a nest will produce approximately two thousand new queens. Naturally these brand-new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the cold months of winter. It’s at this point when wasps are likely to be their most bothersome. When the nest is no longer generating young, the worker wasps are losing out on their sweet fix and begin needing sweet foods. They start feeding on fermenting fruit and as they are basically jobless they become a nuisance pest. It is now when most stings occur. It’s also the moment when coping with a wasps’ nest becomes significantly more difficult since when the queens come out they will no more go back to the nest and so are not eliminated by any insecticide inside of it. At this time of the year we have countless reports of people getting a large amount of wasps within their houses each day, these are the new queens looking for hibernating places. Many Local Authorities at this time of the season will tell people to perish the natural way as ‘it should disappear soon’. This is frequently actually the very worst thing to do since the queens will emerge making the total process more complicated. Once this emergence of queens has commenced, usually from mid-September, it is generally recommended to undertake supplementary work, such as smoking or fogging the attic to destroy these queens which of course carries further expenses. The best suggestion Greater Manchester wasps’ nest control can give is when you have got a wasps’ nest get it destroyed before 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. Greater Manchester wasps’ nest control usually tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into early winter 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 therefore there is not 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 for that reason only female wasps can sting but very few would like 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 invader from the continent which came here here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more types of wasps in the UK although they usually do not trouble us as unwanted pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in the British Isles, largely restricted to the southerly counties but Greater Manchester wasps’ nest control did destroy 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 need for Greater Manchester wasps’ nest control to identify the variety 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 absolutely the exact same treatment. What controls the amount and size of wasps’ nests is not the severity of the previous winter but the conditions in the spring. The hibernating queens can live through any amount of cold but the worst of all situation for them is exactly what took place in 2012. There was a very early warm period for around six weeks from mid-February and through March. This brought the wasp queens from hibernation ahead of time but unluckily 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 turned into a horrendous summer for wasps.
