First and foremost, kindly ensure that you actually do have a wasps’ nest, you would be astonished at how commonly we are called out to what’s meant to be a wasps’ nest and it turns out to be bees, especially solitary bees in the the spring months. When you have a wasps’ nest you will see loads of wasps coming and going from one opening, if they’re just solitary bees they will be going into a whole lot of holes everywhere in the walls, especially airbricks and weep holes in plastic window frames. These solitary bees are not at all damaging and they do not sting and no remedies are possible or needed. As a guideline you won’t have a live wasps’ nest until at the very least mid to late May owing to the biology of the wasp. Any noticed before mid-May will be bees with no doubt whatsoever. Few insects generate concern as the wasp with lots of people responding very seriously to their stings. Sadly every single year in the British Isles individuals do die due to of being stung by wasps, often after inadvertently upsetting the nest.

Nest Development through the summerA wasps’ nest starts at the end of spring in most cases around early April when the queens wake up and begin the process of nest construction. As opposed to honey bees, only queens survive the winter months, the rest of the workers having died off the previous winter. The queen develops a little nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she produces by blending decaying wood with saliva. This initial nest is roughly the size of a golf ball, inside it she lays approximately twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she nourishes with various insects until they pupate and hatch out into perfectly fledged wasps. These young wasps will then assume control of nest construction while the queen will remain within the nest laying eggs. This entire process involves a few weeks and it is uncommon indeed to come across a wasps’ nest prior to June. The most active period of nest formation is generally the month of June and Southport wasps’ nest control always calculate that the wasping season generally starts about the 3rd week in June. If left untreated the nest proceeds to develop over the summer time and dependent on conditions and availability to food will consist of in between 5000 – 30,000 wasps at its optimum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside the nest they’re repaid by the larvae which release a sweet sticky material that the wasps want and therefore this is their motive to sustain their young. Up to approximately August time the nest forms only sterile females but as the days begin to draw in it produces its final clutch of larvae which are new queens and males. Ordinarily a nest will generate around two thousand new queens. Naturally these brand new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the cold months of winter. It’s at this period when wasps are inclined to be their most problematic. When the nest is no longer producing 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 more or less unemployed they transform into a nuisance pest. It is now when most stings occur. It’s also the time when destroying a wasps’ nest becomes substantially more complicated since when the queens come out they will cease to return to the nest and so are not eradicated by any insecticide inside of it. At this time of the year we have numerous accounts of persons getting a large quantity of wasps inside of their properties everyday, these are the new queens searching for hibernating sites. Many Local Authorities at this point of the season will tell people to leave the nest be as ‘it should go away soon’. This is often actually the worst possible thing that can be done because the queens will emerge making the whole job more tricky. Once this process has started, commonly from mid-September, it is commonly recommended to undertake extra work, for instance smoking or fogging the loft to get rid of these queens which naturally carries supplementary expenses. The best recommendation Southport wasps’ nest control can provide is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it removed before September and this will save you lots of problems. Left untreated a wasps nest can endure up until the first main freeze of wintertime, they remain later in to the the autumn months than some people imagine. Southport wasps’ nest control regularly tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into early winter and the latest we’ve dealt with an active nest was Christmas eve! When the cold 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 therefore there is not any benefit at all in attempting to remove it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a altered egg laying tube and consequently only female wasps are able to sting but very few would like to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp they are seeing. 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 import from Europe which established itself here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more kinds of wasps in the UK although they tend not to trouble us as undesirable pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in Britain, mainly restricted to the southerly counties but Southport wasps’ nest control did destroy a hornets’ nest within the Knutsford area in the summertime of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever seen this far north. There is no necessity for Southport 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 very similar biology and react to absolutely the identical treatment. What controls the number and dimensions of wasps’ nests isn’t the severity of the preceding winter but the weather conditions in the spring. The hibernating queens can endure any amount of cold however the worst of all predicament for them is just what happened in 2012. There was a very early warm period for around six weeks from mid-February and throughout March. This helped bring the wasp queens from hibernation ahead of time but regrettably for them it turned much colder and then there wasn’t any food available so they starved. As a consequence the summer of 2012 turned out to be a awful summer for wasps.
