Nest Development throughout the summerA wasps’ nest commences at the end of spring frequently around early April when the queens awaken and begin the process of nest construction. In comparison to honey bees, only queens survive the wintertime, the remainder 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 initial nest is approximately the size of a golf ball, inside it she lays somewhere around twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she feeds with various grubs until they pupate and hatch into fully fledged wasps. These new wasps will then assume control of nest developing while the queen will remain inside the nest producing eggs. This whole process will require a number of weeks and it is unusual indeed to see a wasps’ nest before to June. The busiest stage of nest building is normally the month of June and Urmston wasps’ nest control always calculate that the wasps’ nest season commonly starts around the third week in June. If left untreated the nest continues to build up over the the summer season and dependent on weather conditions and accessibility to food will consist of around five thousand – 30,000 wasps at its optimum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside the nest they’re rewarded by the larvae which exude a sweet sticky substance that the wasps want and subsequently this is their motivation to develop their young. Up to around August time the nest forms only unfertile females but as the days begin to shorten it generates its last batch of larvae which are new queens and males. Ordinarily a nest will create approximately two thousand new queens. Normally these brand new 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 making young, the worker wasps are losing out on their sweet fix and set out needing sweet foods. They begin feeding on fermenting fruit and as they are basically out of work they turn into a nuisance pest. It is now when the majority of stings occur. It’s also the moment when destroying a wasps’ nest becomes noticeably more difficult since when the queens emerge they will no more go back to the nest and so are not eradicated by any insecticide inside of it. At this time of the year we have countless accounts of individuals getting a significant amount of wasps within their houses every single day, these are the new queens looking for hibernating sites. Many Local Councils at this time of the season will advise people to leave the nest without treatment as ‘it should go away soon’. This is frequently actually the very worst thing that can be done considering the fact that the queens will appear making the complete process more complicated. Once this producing of queens has commenced, usually from mid-September, it is usually essential to perform additional work, for example smoking or fogging the attic to eliminate these queens which obviously carries additional charges. The best suggestion Urmston wasps’ nest control can provide is when you have got a wasps’ nest get it destroyed 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 remain later in to the the autumn months than some people think. Urmston wasps’ nest control usually tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into early winter and the latest we’ve handled an live nest was Christmas 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 made use of again and for that reason there isn’t any gain at all in struggling to get rid of 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 gamble on guessing the right sex of the wasp confronting them. 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 invader from Europe which established itself here in the 80s Dolichovespula media. There are more types of wasps in the UK although they tend not to bother us as unwanted pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in Britain, mainly limited to the southerly counties but Urmston 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 found this far north. There is no need for Urmston wasps’ nest control to differentiate the variety of wasp we’re dealing with to be able to get rid of the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a very similar biology and react to exactly the same exact treatment. What controls the quantity and size of wasps’ nests is actually not the harshness of the prior winter but the local weather in the spring. The hibernating queens can endure any amount of cold however the worst of all scenario for them is exactly 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 early but unluckily for them it turned cold and wet and then there wasn’t any food for them so they starved. As a result the summer of 2012 came to be a bad summer for wasps.
