Nest Development throughout the seasonA wasps’ nest will start at the end of spring normally around early April when the queens wake up and begin nest building. As opposed to honey bees, only queens survive the cold months of winter, the rest of the workers having died off the previous winter. The queen develops a miniature nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she makes by mixing up decaying wood with saliva. This preliminary nest is roughly the shape of a golf ball, inside it she lays approximately 20 eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she nurtures with various grubs until they pupate and hatch out into fully fledged wasps. These fresh wasps will then take control of nest constructing while the queen will stay within the nest producing eggs. This whole process requires a number of weeks and it’s unusual indeed to discover a wasps’ nest prior to June. The most hectic stage of nest building is commonly the month of June and Knutsford wasps’ nest control always estimate that the wasping season generally starts around the third week in June. If left to its own devices the nest proceeds to build over the summer time and dependent on weather and availability to food will consist of around five thousand – thirty thousand wasps at its maximum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside of the nest they’re repaid by the larvae which release a sweet sticky substance that the wasps hunger for and subsequently this is their motivation to nourish their young. Up to approximately August time the nest makes only sterile females but as the days begin to draw in it generates its final clutch of larvae which are new queens and males. Frequently a nest will generate around 2,000 new queens. Naturally these emerging queens will mate and after that hibernate for the wintertime. It’s at this period when wasps have a tendency to be their most problematical. When the nest is no longer making young, the worker wasps are missing their sweet fix and set out needing sweet foods. They start feeding on fermenting fruit and as they are effectively out of work they transform into a annoying pest. It is now when most stings occur. It’s also the moment when coping with a wasps’ nest becomes considerably more complicated since when the queens emerge they will no more return back to the nest and so are not eliminated by any insecticide inside it. At this time of the year we have numerous stories of persons getting a significant quantity of wasps inside of their properties on a daily basis, these are the new queens searching for hibernating places. Many Local Councils at this point of the season will tell people to leave the nest be as ‘it should go away soon’. This is frequently actually the very worst thing to do since the queens will appear making the total job more tricky. Once this process has begun, normally from mid-September, it is usually necessary to carry out supplementary work, for instance smoking or fogging the attic space to eliminate these queens which obviously carries supplementary costs. The best guideline Knutsford wasps’ nest control can provide is when you have got a wasps’ nest get it removed in advance of September and this will save you lots of trouble. Left to its own devices 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 imagine. Knutsford wasps’ nest control regularly tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into early winter and the latest we’ve handled an active nest was Christmas eve! When the cold weather comes the queens hibernate and all the other wasps, workers and males, die out. The nest itself is then exhausted, it will never be used again and consequently there is not any gain at all in making an attempt to get rid of it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified ovipositor and because of this only female wasps can sting but very few would like to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp in question. In Britain we now have 3 species of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent invader from European countries which came here here in the 80s Dolichovespula media. There are more varieties of wasps in Britain however they tend not to bother us as undesirable pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in the British Isles, mainly restricted to the southerly counties but Knutsford wasps’ nest control did deal with a hornets’ nest around the Knutsford area in the summer of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever come across this far north. There is no necessity for Knutsford wasps’ nest control to identify the kind 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 exactly the same exact treatment. What governs the number and dimensions of wasps’ nests is actually not the harshness of the past winter but the weather conditions in the spring. The hibernating queens can endure any amount of cold but the worst of all circumstance for them is exactly what occurred in 2012. There was a remarkably early warm interval for about six weeks from mid-February and throughout March. This helped bring the wasp queens from hibernation early but unfortunately 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 turned into a awful summer for wasps.
