First of all, kindly make certain that you actually do have a wasps’ nest, you’d be surprised at how regularly we are called out to what’s supposed to be a wasps’ nest and it proves to be to be bees, especially solitary bees in the early spring. If you have a wasps’ nest you will see numerous wasps coming and going from a single opening, if they’re just solitary bees they’ll be entering a whole lot of holes all over the place in the walls, in particular air-bricks and weep holes in plastic window frames. These solitary bees are not at all damaging and they can’t sting and no treatment methods are available or required. As a guideline you will not have an active wasps’ nest before at the very earliest late May because of the biology of the wasp. Any spotted before mid-May will be bees with no doubt whatsoever. Few insects spark concern as the wasp with a lot of people reacting very badly to their stings. Unfortunately each year in the United Kingdom persons do die due to of receiving a wasp sting, often after inadvertently upsetting the nest.

Nest Progress through the seasonA wasps’ nest commences at the end of spring usually around April when the queens awaken and begin the process of nest building. In contrast to honey bees, only queens survive the winter, the rest of the nest having died off the previous winter. The queen makes a little nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she makes by mixing decaying wood with saliva. This basic nest is about the dimension of a golf ball, inside it she lays around 20 eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she sustains with various insects until they pupate and hatch into perfectly fledged wasps. These fresh wasps will then take control of nest building while the queen will remain inside the nest producing eggs. This whole process will require a few weeks and it really is unusual indeed to see a wasps’ nest prior to June. The most hectic period of nest building is generally in June and Stretford wasps’ nest control always estimate that the wasping season usually starts around the third week in June. If left untreated the nest carries on to progress over the summer time and depending on temperatures and availability to food will hold in between 5000 – thirty thousand wasps at its maximum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside the nest they are rewarded by the larvae which release a sweet sticky substance that the wasps long for and therefore this is their motive to nourish their young. Up to approximately August time the nest forms only unfertile females but as the days begin to draw in it creates its final set of larvae which are new queens and males. Generally a nest will produce approximately 2,000 new queens. Normally these brand new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the winter time. It’s at this period when wasps often tend to be their most bothersome. When the nest is no longer producing young, the worker wasps are losing out on their sweet fix and set out needing sweet foods. They start feeding on fermenting fruit and as they are effectively out of work they become a annoying pest. It is now when most stings occur. It’s also the time when dealing with a wasps’ nest becomes considerably more difficult since when the queens come out they will no longer return to the nest and so are not eliminated by any pesticide within it. At this time of the year we have numerous stories of customers getting a large quantity of wasps within their properties on a daily basis, these are the new queens looking for hibernating places. Many Local Councils at this point of the season will tell enquirers to leave the nest be as ‘it should disappear soon’. This is often in reality the very worst thing that can be done given that the queens will appear making the complete process more tricky. Once this emergence of queens has begun, generally from mid-September, it is usually essential to perform additional work, for instance smoking or fogging the attic space to kill these queens which naturally carries extra expenses. The best guideline Stretford wasps’ nest control can provide is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it destroyed prior to September and this will save you lots of problems. Left alone a wasps nest can survive up until the first main freeze of winter, they live later in to the the autumn months than some people imagine. Stretford wasps’ nest control regularly tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into early winter and the latest we’ve destroyed an live 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 which means that there is not any advantage at all in trying to remove it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified egg laying tube and as a consequence only female wasps are able to sting but few would be prepared to gamble on guessing the right sex of the wasp they are seeing. In The Uk we now have three types of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent incomer from the continent which arrived here here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more kinds of wasps in Britain although they do not bother us as unwanted pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in Britain, generally limited to the southern counties but Stretford wasps’ nest control did handle a hornets’ nest around 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 Stretford wasps’ nest control to recognize the species of wasp we’re dealing with to be able to eliminate the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a very similar biology and react to exactly the same treatment. What controls the quantity and dimensions of wasps’ nests isn’t the severity of the past winter but the weather condition in the spring. The hibernating queens can survive any amount of cold but the worst of all predicament for them is precisely what took place in 2012. There was a remarkably early warm interval for about six weeks from mid-February and all over March. This brought the wasp queens from hibernation early on but sadly for them it turned cold and wet and then there wasn’t any food available so they starved. As a consequence the summer of 2012 turned into a bad summer for wasps.
