To start with, kindly ensure that you actually do have a wasps’ nest, you’d be surprised at how commonly we are called out to what’s supposed to be a wasps’ nest and it turns out to be bees, in particular solitary bees in the early spring. When you have a wasps’ nest you will see a lot of wasps entering and leaving from one entrance, if they’re just solitary bees they’ll be going into a whole lot of holes all over in the brickwork, especially air-bricks and weep holes in plastic windows. These solitary bees are innocuous and they do not sting and no actions are available or necessary. As a rough yardstick you will not have a live wasps’ nest until at the very earliest the middle of May because of the lifecycle of the wasp. Any witnessed before mid-May will be bees with no doubt whatsoever. Very few insects spark dread as the wasp with lots of people reacting very poorly to their stings. Unfortunately each year in the British Isles persons do die because of having been stung by wasps, often after accidentally annoying the nest.

Nest Progress throughout the seasonA wasps’ nest starts at the end of spring typically around April when the queens awaken and commence nest construction. As opposed to honey bees, only queens live through the winter, the rest of the colony having died off the previous winter. The queen forms a tiny nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she makes by mixing decaying wood with saliva. This basic nest is about the proportions of a golf ball, inside it she lays roughly twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she nurtures with various grubs until they pupate and grow into perfectly fledged wasps. These fresh wasps will then take control of nest developing while the queen will remain inside of the nest producing eggs. This entire process will require a number of weeks and it is uncommon indeed to find a wasps’ nest before to June. The most active stage of nest growth is normally the month of June and Northwich wasps’ nest control always approximate that the wasping season generally starts about the 3rd week in June. If left untreated the nest continues to build up over the summer time and depending on conditions and accessibility to food will consist of in between five thousand – thirty thousand wasps at its peak. When the worker wasps feed the larvae within the nest they are repaid by the larvae which express a sweet sticky material that the wasps long for and therefore this is their encouragement to nurture their young. Up to approximately August time the nest makes only unfertile females but as the days begin to shorten it produces its final batch of larvae which are new queens and males. Frequently a nest will create around 2,000 new queens. Normally these brand new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the wintertime. It’s at this stage when wasps have a tendency to be their most problematical. When the nest is no longer developing young, the worker wasps are missing out on their sweet fix and set out needing sweet foods. They start feeding on rotting fruit and as they are essentially out of work they become a annoying pest. It is now when most stings occur. It’s also the time when destroying a wasps’ nest becomes significantly more complicated since when the queens emerge they will cease to go back to the nest and so are not eradicated by any pesticide inside of it. At this stage of the year we have countless stories of customers getting a significant quantity of wasps inside of their homes every single day, these are the new queens searching for hibernating places. Many Local Councils at this point of the season will advise enquirers to die the natural way as ‘it should disappear soon’. This is frequently in reality the worst possible thing to do since the queens will appear making the whole process more difficult. Once this emergence of queens has begun, generally from mid-September, it is generally necessary to perform supplementary work, such as smoking or fogging the loft to destroy these queens which of course carries extra costs. The best suggestion Northwich wasps’ nest control can give is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it removed ahead of September and this will save you lots of hassle. Left alone a wasps nest can endure up until the first main freeze of winter, they live later in to the the autumn months than some people believe. Northwich wasps’ nest control normally tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into late November and December and the latest we’ve taken care of an live nest was Xmas 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 consequently there isn’t any gain at all in attempting to get rid of it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified egg laying tube and consequently only female wasps can sting but not many would like to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp in question. In Britain we now have 3 types of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent incomer from Europe which came here here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more varieties of wasps in Britain however they do not bother us as unwanted pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in The Uk, largely restricted to the southern counties but Northwich 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 seen this far north. There is no necessity for Northwich wasps’ nest control to identify the variety of wasp we’re eradicating to be able to destroy the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a similar biology and react to absolutely the same treatment. What governs the quantity and size of wasps’ nests is actually not the severity of the past winter but the weather condition in the spring. The hibernating queens can survive any amount of cold however the worst of all situation for them is exactly what transpired in 2012. There was a very early warm interval for about 6 weeks from mid-February and through March. This helped bring 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 turned out to be a poor summer for wasps.
