Firstly, please make certain that you really do have a wasps’ nest, you’d be surprised at how many times we are called out to what’s meant to be a wasps’ nest and it proves to be to be bees, in particular solitary bees in the early spring. Whenever you have a wasps’ nest you will observe a lot of wasps entering and leaving from one opening, if they are solitary bees they’ll be going into many of holes just about everywhere in the brickwork, particularly air-bricks and drainage holes in plastic window frames. These solitary bees are unhazardous and they cannot sting and no actions are possible or necessary. As a guideline you won’t have a live wasps’ nest until at the very minimum the middle of May because of the lifecycle of the wasp. Any noted before mid-May will be bees with no doubt whatsoever. Very few insects spark dread as the wasp with lots of people responding very seriously to their stings. Sadly every year in the British Isles individuals do pass away as a result of of being stung by wasps, often after inadvertently disturbing the nest.

Over almost all of the summer time getting rid of a wasps’ nest is mostly a simple matter of treating it using a little bit of of insecticide and returning wasps circulate it about the insides of the nest, inside of an hour or so the rest of the colony is dead.

This is extremely likely to be the case with any ‘wasps’ that you notice before June.
Nest Progress throughout the summerA wasps’ nest starts at the end of spring generally 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 time, the remainder of the workers having died off the previous winter. The queen builds a tiny nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she produces by mixing decaying wood with saliva. This early nest is roughly the proportions of a golf ball, inside it she lays approximately twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she feeds with various grubs until they pupate and hatch into perfectly fledged wasps. These fresh wasps will then assume control of nest developing while the queen will stay inside of the nest laying eggs. This entire process requires a number of weeks and it is uncommon indeed to discover a wasps’ nest before to June. The most hectic period of nest growth is typically the month of June and Walkden wasps’ nest control always calculate that the wasping season usually starts around the 3rd week in June. If left untreated the nest continues to develop over the summertime and based on temperatures and accessibility to food will consist of around 5000 – thirty thousand wasps at its optimum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside the nest they are rewarded by the larvae which express a sweet sticky substance which the wasps hunger for and subsequently this is their motive to feed their young. Up to around August time the nest creates only unfertile females but as the days begin to draw in it will make its final clutch of larvae which are new queens and males. Generally a nest will generate approximately 2,000 new queens. Normally these brand new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the wintertime. It’s at this time when wasps have a tendency to be their most troublesome. When the nest is no longer creating young, the worker wasps are losing out on their sweet fix and set out needing sweet foods. They begin feeding on rotting fruit and as they are basically out of work they become a annoying pest. It is now when most stings occur. It’s also the time when coping with a wasps’ nest becomes substantially 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 it. At this stage of the year we have countless stories of people getting a large amount of wasps within their homes on a daily basis, these are the new queens looking for hibernating sites. Many Local Authorities at this point of the season will tell enquirers to leave the nest without treatment as ‘it should go away soon’. This is frequently actually the very worst thing to do since the queens will appear making the total process more complicated. Once this emergence of queens has commenced, typically from mid-September, it is usually essential to undertake additional work, for example smoking or fogging the attic space to get rid of these queens which normally carries additional expenses. The best suggestion Walkden wasps’ nest control can give is when you have got a wasps’ nest get it eliminated ahead of September and this will save you lots of trouble. Left alone a wasps nest can last up until the first main freeze of wintertime, they remain later in to the the autumn months than some people think. Walkden wasps’ nest control normally tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into late November and December and the latest we’ve dealt with 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 spent, it will never be used again and consequently there is not any advantage at all in attempting to remove it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified egg laying tube and consequently only female wasps can sting but not many would like to gamble on guessing the right sex of the wasp they are seeing. In Great Britain we now have three species 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 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more kinds of wasps in Britain although they tend not to bother us as undesirable pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in the British Isles, generally restricted to the southerly counties but Walkden wasps’ nest control did deal with a hornets’ nest within the Knutsford area in the summertime of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever come across this far north. There is no necessity for Walkden wasps’ nest control to recognize the variety of wasp we’re dealing with to be able to destroy the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a very similar biology and react to absolutely the same treatment. What governs the number and size of wasps’ nests isn’t the harshness of the prior winter but the weather in the spring. The hibernating queens can endure any amount of cold but the worst of all predicament for them is exactly what happened in 2012. There was a remarkably early warm interval for about 6 weeks from mid-February and all over 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 available so they starved. As a consequence the summer of 2012 came to be a horrendous summer for wasps.
