In the first place, kindly make sure that you really do have a wasps’ nest, you would be astonished at how often we are called out to what is expected to be a wasps’ nest and it proves to be to be bees, often solitary bees in the early spring. Whenever you have a wasps’ nest you will see loads of wasps entering and leaving from one opening, if they are solitary bees they will be going into a lot of holes everywhere in the brickwork, specially airbricks and drainage holes in plastic windows. These solitary bees are innocuous and they can’t sting and no actions are possible or needed. As a rule of thumb you can’t have an active wasps’ nest before at the very earliest late May because of the lifecycle of the wasp. Any seen before mid-May will be bees with no doubt whatsoever. Very few insects trigger fear as the wasp with a lot of people responding very seriously to their stings. Sad to say every year in the British Isles persons do pass away due to of receiving a wasp sting, often after accidentally upsetting the nest.

Nest Growth throughout the summerA wasps’ nest begins at the end of spring commonly around April when the queens wake up and start nest making. In comparison to honey bees, only queens survive the winter months, the rest of the nest having died off the previous winter. The queen forms a miniature nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she creates by blending rotting wood with saliva. This basic nest is about the size of a golf ball, inside it she lays around twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she feeds with various grubs until they pupate and grow into fully fledged wasps. These juvenile wasps will then assume control of nest developing while the queen will stay inside the nest laying eggs. This entire process requires a few weeks and it really is uncommon indeed to find a wasps’ nest prior to June. The busiest period of nest building is normally the month of June and Preston wasps’ nest control always calculate that the wasping season usually starts around the 3rd week in June. If left to its own devices the nest carries on to build up over the summer and depending on weather and availability to food will consist of between 5000 – thirty thousand wasps at its peak. When the worker wasps feed the larvae within the nest they are rewarded by the larvae which express a sweet sticky substance which the wasps want and subsequently this is their encouragement to nurture their young. Up to approximately August time the nest creates only sterile females but as the days begin to shorten it makes its final set of larvae which are new queens and males. In general a nest will generate up to two thousand new queens. Naturally these new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the winter time. It’s at this stage when wasps have a tendency to be their most bothersome. When the nest is no longer making young, the worker wasps are lacking their sweet fix and set out needing sweet foods. They start feeding on fermenting fruit and as they are basically unemployed they transform into a annoying pest. It is now when nearly all stings occur. It’s also the time when coping with a wasps’ nest becomes significantly more complicated since when the queens come out they will no more return to the nest and so are not eradicated by any pesticide inside it. At this time of the year we have numerous stories of persons getting a significant number of wasps inside of their dwellings every single day, these are the new queens searching for hibernating sites. Many Local Councils at this point of the season will tell enquirers to die by natural means as ‘it should go away soon’. This is often in fact the very worst thing you can do since the queens will appear making the whole process more difficult. Once this producing of queens has begun, usually from mid-September, it is normally necessary to undertake supplementary work, for example smoking or fogging the attic to destroy these queens which of course carries further expenses. The best guideline Preston wasps’ nest control can provide is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it destroyed in advance of September and this will save you lots of hassle. Left alone a wasps nest can last up until the first main freeze of winter, they remain later in to the the autumn months than some people think. Preston wasps’ nest control typically 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 out. The nest itself is then spent, it will never be made use of again and for that reason there is not any advantages at all in attempting to get rid of it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified egg laying tube and for that reason only female wasps can sting but very few would like to gamble on guessing the right sex of the wasp in question. In The Uk we now have 3 species of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent import from the continent which established itself here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more species of wasps in Britain although they don’t trouble us as undesirable pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in the British Isles, mainly restricted to the southern counties but Preston wasps’ nest control did contend with a hornets’ nest within 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 Preston wasps’ nest control to distinguish the species of wasp we’re eradicating to be able to eliminate the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a similar biology and react to precisely the same exact treatment. What governs the amount and size of wasps’ nests isn’t the severity of the preceding winter but the local weather in the spring. The hibernating queens can live through any amount of cold however the worst of all situation for them is precisely what occurred in 2012. There was a very early warm period for about six weeks from mid-February and through March. This helped bring the wasp queens from hibernation early but regrettably for them it turned cold and wet and then there wasn’t any food available so they starved. As a result the summer of 2012 came to be a poor summer for wasps.
