Whenever you have a wasps’ nest you will see plenty of wasps coming and going from a single hole, if they are solitary bees they’ll be going into a whole lot of holes all over in the walls, particularly air-bricks and drainage holes in plastic windows. These solitary bees are not at all damaging and they cannot sting and no actions are possible or appropriate. As a guideline you won’t have a live wasps’ nest before at the very least the middle of May as a consequence of the lifecycle of the wasp. Any seen before mid-May will be bees with no shadow of a doubt. Very few insects spark anxiety as the wasp with a lot of people reacting very poorly to their stings. Unfortunately every year in the United Kingdom persons do die due to of receiving a wasp sting, often after accidentally upsetting the nest.

Nest Development through the seasonA wasps’ nest starts at the end of spring in most cases around April when the queens wake up and start nest building. In contrast to honey bees, only queens survive the wintertime, the remainder of the colony having died off the previous winter. The queen develops a tiny nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she produces by mixing decaying wood with saliva. This initial nest is about the shape of a golf ball, within it she lays somewhere around twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she nurtures with various insects until they pupate and hatch into fully fledged wasps. These fresh wasps will then take control of nest developing while the queen will stay inside of the nest producing eggs. This entire process will require a number of weeks and it’s unusual indeed to come across a wasps’ nest prior to June. The most active stage of nest formation is commonly in June and Lymm wasps’ nest control always guess that the wasping season usually starts about the 3rd week in June. If left untreated the nest proceeds to develop over the the summer months and depending on temperatures and availability to food will contain in between 5000 – thirty thousand wasps at its peak. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside of the nest they are repaid by the larvae which exude a sweet sticky substance that the wasps desire and therefore this is their encouragement to develop their young. Up to approximately August time the nest produces only sterile females but as the days begin to shorten it generates its last set of larvae which are new queens and males. Usually a nest will generate approximately 2,000 new queens. Normally these brand new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the winter time. It’s at this period when wasps tend to be their most troublesome. When the nest is no longer making young, the worker wasps are lacking their sweet fix and set out needing sweet foods. They begin feeding on fermenting fruit and as they are effectively out of work they become a nuisance pest. It is now when most stings occur. It’s also the moment when coping with a wasps’ nest becomes substantially more difficult since when the queens emerge they will cease to return to the nest and so are not killed by any insecticide within it. At this time of the year we have numerous accounts of customers getting a large number of wasps within their houses everyday, these are the new queens searching for hibernating places. Many Local Authorities at this time of the season will advise people to leave the nest be as ‘it should go away soon’. This is frequently in reality the worst possible thing that can be done given that the queens will emerge making the total process more difficult. Once this emergence of queens has commenced, normally from mid-September, it is commonly recommended to undertake supplementary work, such as smoking or fogging the attic space to destroy these queens which obviously carries extra expenses. The best suggestion Lymm wasps’ nest control can provide is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it eradicated in advance of September and this will save you lots of problems. Left untreated a wasps nest can continue up until the first main freeze of wintertime, they survive later in to the the autumn months than some people think. Lymm wasps’ nest control usually tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into early winter and the latest we’ve dealt with an active nest was Xmas eve! When the cold comes the queens hibernate and all the other wasps, workers and males, die off. The nest itself is then exhausted, it will never be used again and subsequently there is not any gain at all in trying to get rid of it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified ovipositor and consequently only female wasps can sting but not many would be prepared to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp confronting them. In Great Britain we now have 3 varieties of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent import from the continent which came here here in the 80s Dolichovespula media. There are more kinds of wasps in the UK although they tend not to trouble us as undesirable pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in the British Isles, generally restricted to the southerly counties but Lymm wasps’ nest control did cope with a hornets’ nest within the Knutsford area in the summertime of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever encountered this far north. There is no need for Lymm wasps’ nest control to differentiate the variety 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 precisely the same treatment. What governs the number and size of wasps’ nests isn’t the harshness of the last winter but the local weather in the spring. The hibernating queens can live through any amount of cold however the worst of all circumstance for them is exactly what happened in 2012. There was a very early warm period for around 6 weeks from mid-February and throughout March. This helped bring the wasp queens from hibernation early but unfortunately for them it turned really cold and then there wasn’t any food for them so they starved. As a result the summer of 2012 became a horrendous summer for wasps.
