Nest Progress through the seasonA wasps’ nest will start at the end of spring generally around early April when the queens wake up and begin the process of nest making. In comparison to honey bees, only queens live through the wintertime, the rest of the colony having died off the previous winter. The queen forms a little nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she produces by blending decaying wood with saliva. This preliminary nest is about the proportions of a golf ball, inside it she lays approximately 20 eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she nurtures with various grubs until they pupate and grow into fully fledged wasps. These fresh wasps will then take control of nest constructing while the queen will stay within 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 formation is usually the month of June and Trafford wasps’ nest control always calculate that the wasping season usually starts about the 3rd week in June. If left alone the nest proceeds to develop over the summer and depending on conditions and accessibility to food will consist of in between five thousand – 30,000 wasps at its maximum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside of the nest they are repaid by the larvae which express a sweet sticky substance that the wasps long for and therefore this is their motivation to nourish their young. Up to approximately August time the nest makes only unfertile females but as the days begin to draw in it makes its final clutch of larvae which are new queens and males. Commonly a nest will create up to 2,000 new queens. Normally these emerging queens will mate and after that hibernate for the winter months. It’s at this point when wasps tend to be their most bothersome. When the nest is no longer generating young, the worker wasps are lacking their sweet fix and begin needing sweet foods. They start feeding on rotting fruit and as they are more or less unemployed they turn into a annoying pest. It is now when the majority of stings occur. It’s also the time when dealing with a wasps’ nest becomes noticeably more complicated since when the queens emerge they will no more return back to the nest and so are not eliminated by any pesticide inside of it. At this time of the year we have countless stories of customers getting a large amount of wasps inside of their houses on a daily basis, these are the new queens searching for hibernating sites. Many Local Councils at this time of the season will advise people to leave the nest untreated as ‘it should disappear soon’. This is often actually the very worst thing that can be done considering that the queens will emerge making the complete process more complicated. Once this emergence of queens has started, commonly from mid-September, it is commonly essential to carry out supplementary work, such as smoking or fogging the loft to destroy these queens which naturally carries supplementary charges. The best recommendation Trafford wasps’ nest control can provide is when you have got a wasps’ nest get it eradicated before September and this will save you lots of hassle. Left to its own devices a wasps nest can continue up until the first main freeze of winter, they survive later in to the the autumn months than some people believe. Trafford wasps’ nest control normally tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into early winter and the latest we’ve handled an live nest was Xmas 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 as a result there isn’t any benefit at all in making an effort to remove it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified ovipositor and therefore only female wasps are able to sting but very few would like to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp confronting them. In The Uk we now have 3 types of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent import from European countries which established itself here in the 80s Dolichovespula media. There are more species of wasps in Britain although they usually do not bother us as unwanted pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in Britain, mostly limited to the southerly counties but Trafford wasps’ nest control did contend with a hornets’ nest around the Knutsford area in the summer of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever encountered this far north. There is no need for Trafford wasps’ nest control to distinguish the kind of wasp we’re eradicating to be able to get rid of the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a similar biology and react to exactly the exact same treatment. What controls the amount and size of wasps’ nests isn’t the severity of the previous winter but the local weather 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 very early warm interval for around 6 weeks from mid-February and throughout March. This brought the wasp queens from hibernation early but unluckily 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 was a horrendous summer for wasps.
