In the first place, please make certain that you really do have a wasps’ nest, you’d be surprised at how commonly we are called out to what is expected to be a wasps’ nest and it proves to be to be bees, particularly solitary bees in the early spring. When you have a wasps’ nest you will notice plenty of wasps entering and leaving from a single spot, if they’re solitary bees they’ll be going into a whole lot of holes all over the place in the walls, particularly air-bricks and weep holes in plastic windows. These solitary bees are not at all damaging and stingless and no remedies are available or appropriate. As a general guideline you will not have an active wasps’ nest before at the very minimum the middle of May as a consequence of the biology of the wasp. Any noted before mid-May will be bees with no doubt whatsoever. Few insects spark anxiety as the wasp with lots of people responding very badly to their stings. Sad to say every year in the British Isles people do pass away due to of having been stung by wasps, often after unintentionally upsetting the nest.

Additionally, and even more important you shouldn’t try to seal the nest access with mortar or mastic etc., you’ll force the wasps into the building and also when we appear we need the entranceway to be unsealed so as to conduct the work. Over the majority of the summer eliminating a wasps’ nest is typically a simple matter of treating it using a little bit of of pesticide and the returning wasps disperse it about the inside of the nest, inside an hour or so the complete nest is dead.

Nest Progress throughout the summerA wasps’ nest begins at the end of spring typically around April when the queens awaken and start nest building. In contrast to honey bees, only queens live through the winter months, the remainder of the workers having died off the previous winter. The queen forms a very small nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she produces by mixing rotting wood with saliva. This early nest is roughly the size of a golf ball, inside it she lays around twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she nourishes with various grubs until they pupate and hatch out into fully fledged wasps. These early wasps will then take control of nest making while the queen will stay inside of the nest laying eggs. This complete process will take a number of weeks and it really is unusual indeed to come across a wasps’ nest before to June. The most hectic period of nest formation is typically in June and Sefton wasps’ nest control always approximate that the wasps’ nest season generally starts about the third week in June. If left alone the nest continues to grow over the summertime and depending on weather conditions and accessibility to food will hold between five thousand – 30,000 wasps at its optimum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae within the nest they are rewarded by the larvae which release a sweet sticky substance which the wasps desire and therefore this is their motive to nurture their young. Up to approximately August time the nest produces only unfertile females but as the days begin to shorten it creates its final clutch of larvae which are new queens and males. In most cases a nest will create around two thousand new queens. Naturally these emerging queens will mate and after that hibernate for the wintertime. It’s at this time when wasps often tend to be their most troublesome. 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 rotting fruit and as they are essentially jobless they turn into a nuisance pest. It is now when most stings occur. It’s also the time when dealing with a wasps’ nest becomes noticeably more complicated since when the queens come out they will no more return back to the nest and so are not eradicated by any insecticide inside of it. At this stage of the year we have countless accounts of individuals getting a significant quantity of wasps inside of their properties every day, these are the new queens searching for hibernating sites. Many Local Councils at this time of the season will advise enquirers to leave the nest be as ‘it should disappear soon’. This is frequently in reality the worst possible thing to do because the queens will appear making the complete job more tricky. Once this producing of queens has begun, commonly from mid-September, it is normally recommended to undertake supplementary work, for example smoking or fogging the attic space to get rid of these queens which of course carries additional charges. The best suggestion Sefton wasps’ nest control can give is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it destroyed ahead of September and this will save you lots of trouble. 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 imagine. Sefton wasps’ nest control normally tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into late November and December and the latest we’ve handled an live nest was Xmas eve! When the wintertime 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 consequently there isn’t any advantages at all in making an effort to remove it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified egg laying tube and therefore only female wasps can sting but very few would like to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp in question. In The United Kingdom we now have 3 types 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 80s Dolichovespula media. There are more kinds of wasps in the UK although they tend not to bother us as unwanted pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in Britain, generally restricted to the southern counties but Sefton wasps’ nest control did cope with 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 Sefton wasps’ nest control to identify the type of wasp we’re dealing with to be able to eliminate the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a comparable biology and react to absolutely the same exact treatment. What governs the number and size of wasps’ nests isn’t the harshness of the prior winter but the weather condition in the spring. The hibernating queens can live through any amount of cold however the worst of all predicament for them is exactly what took place in 2012. There was a remarkably early warm interval for about 6 weeks from mid-February and all throughout March. This brought the wasp queens from hibernation ahead of time but unfortunately 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 awful summer for wasps.
