If you have a wasps’ nest you will observe loads of wasps entering and leaving from one hole, if they’re solitary bees they’ll be going into many of holes just about everywhere in the brickwork, in particular airbricks and drainage holes in pvc window frames. These solitary bees are innocuous and stingless and no treatment methods are possible or required. As a general guideline you will not have a live wasps’ nest before at the very minimum late May owing to the lifecycle of the wasp. Any noted before mid-May will be bees with no shadow of a doubt. Few insects trigger fear as the wasp with lots of people reacting very badly to their stings. Unfortunately each and every year in the UK individuals do pass away because of receiving a wasp sting, often after inadvertently annoying the nest.

Nest Progress through the seasonA wasps’ nest commences at the end of spring typically around April when the queens wake up and begin the process of nest construction. As opposed to honey bees, only queens live through the winter, the remainder of the colony having died off the previous winter. The queen forms a tiny nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she makes by blending decaying wood with saliva. This early nest is roughly the size of a golf ball, inside it she lays somewhere around 20 eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she nurtures with various insects until they pupate and hatch into fully fledged wasps. These early 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 few weeks and it’s uncommon indeed to discover a wasps’ nest prior to June. The busiest period of nest building is usually the month of June and Preston wasps’ nest control always approximate that the wasping season generally starts about the 3rd week in June. If left untreated the nest continues to develop over the the summer season and depending on weather and accessibility to food will consist of between five thousand – 30,000 wasps at its optimum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside of the nest they’re repaid by the larvae which express a sweet sticky substance that the wasps want and therefore this is their motivation to develop their young. Up to around August time the nest creates only unfertile females but as the days begin to draw in it will make its last clutch of larvae which are new queens and males. Usually a nest will create about two thousand new queens. Naturally these new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the wintertime. It’s at this point when wasps are inclined to be their most problematic. When the nest is no longer creating young, the worker wasps are missing their sweet fix and set out needing sweet foods. They start feeding on rotting fruit and as they are effectively unemployed they turn into a annoying pest. It is now when most stings occur. It’s also the moment when destroying a wasps’ nest becomes significantly more difficult since when the queens emerge they will no more return back to the nest and so are not killed by any insecticide within it. At this stage of the year we have countless reports of persons getting a significant amount of wasps inside of their properties each day, these are the new queens searching for hibernating sites. Many Local Councils at this point of the season will tell enquirers to perish naturally as ‘it should disappear soon’. This is often actually the worst possible thing that can be done because the queens will appear making the whole job more difficult. Once this process 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 further expenses. The best guideline Preston wasps’ nest control can give is when you have got a wasps’ nest get it destroyed 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 wintertime, they live later in to the the autumn months than some people imagine. Preston wasps’ nest control typically tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into late November and December and the latest we’ve handled an active nest was Christmas eve! When the winter weather 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 as a result there is not any advantage at all in struggling to get rid of it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified egg laying tube and that is why only female wasps are able to sting but very few would like to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp in question. In The Uk we now have 3 varieties of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent invader from European countries which arrived here here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more species of wasps in Britain however they do not trouble us as undesirable pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in The Uk, largely restricted to the southerly counties but Preston wasps’ nest control did contend with a hornets’ nest within the Knutsford area in the summertime of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever found this far north. There is no necessity for Preston wasps’ nest control to recognize the species of wasp we’re eradicating to be able to get rid of the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a comparable biology and react to absolutely the same treatment. What governs the quantity and size of wasps’ nests is not the harshness of the previous winter but the weather conditions in the spring. The hibernating queens can endure any amount of cold however the worst of all scenario for them is exactly what occurred in 2012. There was a very early warm interval for about six weeks from mid-February and throughout March. This helped bring the wasp queens from hibernation early on but sadly 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 turned into a terrible summer for wasps.
