First of all, please make sure that you really do have a wasps’ nest, you’d be astounded at how commonly 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 spring. When you have a wasps’ nest you will notice a lot of wasps entering and leaving from a single hole, if they’re just solitary bees they’ll be going into many of holes all over in the brickwork, especially airbricks and drainage holes in plastic windows. These solitary bees are benign and stingless and no actions are possible or necessary. As a rule of thumb you won’t have a live wasps’ nest until at the very least mid to late May because of the lifecycle of the wasp. Any seen before mid-May will be bees with no doubt whatsoever. Few insects stimulate concern as the wasp with a lot of people responding very poorly to their stings. Sadly each year in the UK people do die due to of receiving a wasp sting, often after inadvertently upsetting the nest.

Nest Development throughout the summerA wasps’ nest starts at the end of spring usually around April when the queens wake up and begin nest constructing. In contrast to honey bees, only queens live through the wintertime, the remainder of the workers having died off the previous winter. The queen develops a very small nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she makes by mixing up decaying wood with saliva. This initial nest is about the size of a golf ball, inside it she lays approximately twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she sustains with various grubs until they pupate and grow into perfectly fledged wasps. These young wasps will then assume control of nest building while the queen will remain within the nest laying eggs. This whole process will require a number of weeks and it’s unusual indeed to discover a wasps’ nest before to June. The most hectic phase of nest building is normally the month of June and Sale wasps’ nest control always approximate that the wasps’ nest season normally starts around the 3rd week in June. If left untreated the nest continues to progress over the the summer months and depending on conditions and availability to food will consist of around 5000 – thirty thousand wasps at its optimum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside the nest they’re rewarded by the larvae which express a sweet sticky substance which the wasps crave and subsequently this is their motivation to nurture their young. Up to approximately August time the nest forms only unfertile females but as the days begin to draw in it produces its final batch of larvae which are new queens and males. Ordinarily a nest will produce about two thousand new queens. Normally these emerging queens will mate and after that hibernate for the winter time. It’s at this time when wasps are likely to be their most problematic. When the nest is no longer creating young, the worker wasps are losing out on their sweet fix and begin needing sweet foods. They begin feeding on rotting fruit and as they are essentially jobless they develop into a nuisance pest. It is now when the majority of stings occur. It’s also the moment when destroying a wasps’ nest becomes significantly more complicated since when the queens come out they will cease to go back to the nest and so are not eliminated by any insecticide inside it. At this stage of the year we have countless stories of persons getting a large number of wasps inside of their properties every day, these are the new queens looking for hibernating places. Many Local Authorities at this time of the season will advise people to perish the natural way as ‘it should go away soon’. This is frequently in fact the very worst thing that can be done given that the queens will emerge making the complete job more tricky. Once this producing of queens has commenced, commonly from mid-September, it is usually recommended to carry out additional work, for example smoking or fogging the attic space to destroy these queens which obviously carries extra expenses. The best suggestion Sale wasps’ nest control can provide is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it removed prior to September and this will save you lots of trouble. Left alone a wasps nest can survive up until the first main freeze of wintertime, they live later in to the the autumn months than some people believe. Sale wasps’ nest control regularly tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into late November and December and the latest we’ve handled an live 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 exhausted, it will never be used again and subsequently there is not any gain at all in struggling to remove it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a altered ovipositor and consequently only female wasps can sting but very few would like to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp they are seeing. In Britain we now have 3 species of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent invader from Europe which established itself here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more types of wasps in Britain although they don’t trouble us as undesirable pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in the British Isles, largely confined to the southerly counties but Sale wasps’ nest control did deal with 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 Sale wasps’ nest control to recognize the type of wasp we’re dealing with to be able to destroy the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a comparable biology and react to exactly the exact same treatment. What controls the quantity and dimensions of wasps’ nests isn’t the severity of the last winter but the weather conditions in the spring. The hibernating queens can survive any amount of cold but the worst of all situation for them is precisely what transpired in 2012. There was a very early warm period for around six weeks from mid-February and all over 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 available so they starved. As a result the summer of 2012 came to be a poor summer for wasps.
