Firstly, please make sure that you really do have a wasps’ nest, you would be amazed at how regularly we are called out to what’s meant to be a wasps’ nest and it turns out to be bees, particularly solitary bees in the the spring months. If you have a wasps’ nest you will observe numerous wasps entering and leaving from a single opening, if they are solitary bees they will be entering a whole lot of holes all over the place in the walls, especially air-bricks and drainage holes in plastic windows. These solitary bees are not at all damaging and they can’t sting and no treatment methods are available or appropriate. As a guideline you won’t have an active wasps’ nest until at the very earliest late May as a consequence of the life cycle of the wasp. Any observed before mid-May will be bees with no trace of a doubt. Few insects spark anxiety as the wasp with a lot of people reacting very seriously to their stings. Regrettably each and every single year in the United Kingdom persons do pass away because of receiving a wasp sting, often after inadvertently disturbing the nest.

Nest Development throughout the seasonA wasps’ nest starts at the end of spring in most cases around early April when the queens wake up and begin nest building. As opposed to honey bees, only queens survive the wintertime, the remainder of the workers having died off the previous winter. The queen makes a little nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she produces by combining decaying wood with saliva. This initial nest is about the dimension of a golf ball, within it she lays something like twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she feeds with various insects until they pupate and hatch into fully fledged wasps. These juvenile wasps will then assume control of nest constructing while the queen will stay inside of the nest producing eggs. This whole process will require a number of weeks and it is unusual indeed to discover a wasps’ nest before to June. The busiest stage of nest growth is typically in June and Merseyside wasps’ nest control always calculate that the wasps’ nest season generally starts around the third week in June. If left untreated the nest carries on to build up over the the summer season and dependent on weather and availability to food will contain around 5000 – thirty thousand wasps at its optimum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside the nest they are rewarded by the larvae which exude a sweet sticky substance that the wasps want and therefore this is their motivation to nourish their young. Up to around August time the nest forms only unfertile females but as the days begin to shorten it makes its final clutch of larvae which are new queens and males. In most cases a nest will create up to 2,000 new queens. Naturally these emerging queens will mate and after that hibernate for the wintertime. It’s at this point when wasps are inclined to be their most troublesome. When the nest is no longer creating 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 essentially out of work they develop into a annoying pest. It is now when nearly all stings occur. It’s also the time when destroying 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 killed by any pesticide inside it. At this time of the year we have countless stories of customers getting a large number of wasps within their dwellings each day, these are the new queens searching for hibernating places. Many Local Authorities at this time of the season will tell enquirers to leave the nest be as ‘it should go away soon’. This is often in fact the worst possible thing that can be done given that the queens will appear making the whole process more tricky. Once this process has begun, typically from mid-September, it is generally necessary to undertake supplementary work, for example smoking or fogging the loft to eliminate these queens which normally carries extra charges. The best recommendation Merseyside wasps’ nest control can provide is when you have got a wasps’ nest get it removed ahead of September and this will save you lots of problems. Left to its own devices 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. Merseyside wasps’ nest control regularly tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into early winter and the latest we’ve handled an live nest was Xmas eve! When the winter weather comes the queens hibernate and all the other wasps, workers and males, die off. The nest itself is then exhausted, it will never be made use of again and therefore there isn’t any advantages at all in attempting to get rid of it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified egg laying tube and therefore only female wasps are able to sting but not many would be prepared to gamble on guessing the right sex of the wasp in question. In The United Kingdom we now have 3 variations of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent invader from European countries which crossed the channel here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more types of wasps in Britain although they do not bother us as undesirable pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in Britain, largely limited to the southern counties but Merseyside wasps’ nest control did destroy a hornets’ nest around the Knutsford area in the summer of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever found this far north. There is no necessity for Merseyside wasps’ nest control to distinguish the type of wasp we’re dealing with to be able to destroy 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 dimensions of wasps’ nests isn’t the severity of the preceding winter but the weather condition in the spring. The hibernating queens can endure any amount of cold however the worst of all scenario for them is precisely what transpired in 2012. There was a remarkably early warm interval for about 6 weeks from mid-February and throughout March. This helped bring the wasp queens from hibernation early on but sadly for them it turned cold and wet and then there wasn’t any food for them so they starved. As a consequence the summer of 2012 turned into a terrible summer for wasps.
