To start with, kindly make sure that you actually do have a wasps’ nest, you’d be astonished at how commonly we are called out to what’s expected to be a wasps’ nest and it proves to be to be bees, especially solitary bees in the spring. If you have a wasps’ nest you will see plenty of wasps coming and going from just one hole, if they’re just solitary bees they will be going into a whole lot of holes almost everywhere in the walls, particularly airbricks and drainage holes in pvc window frames. These solitary bees are benign and stingless and no treatment methods are possible or necessary. As a guideline you will not have an active wasps’ nest until at the very minimum late May because of the biology of the wasp. Any seen before mid-May will be bees with no shadow of a doubt. Very few insects stimulate dread as the wasp with a lot of people reacting very poorly to their stings. Sadly each and every year in the British Isles people do pass away because of being stung by wasps, often after inadvertently upsetting the nest.

Nest Development through the seasonA wasps’ nest begins at the end of spring generally around April when the queens wake up and begin nest making. As opposed to honey bees, only queens live through the cold months of winter, the rest of the workers having died off the previous winter. The queen builds a miniature nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she creates by mixing up decaying wood with saliva. This initial nest is roughly the proportions of a golf ball, within it she lays roughly 20 eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she nurtures with various grubs until they pupate and hatch out into fully fledged wasps. These early wasps will then assume control of nest constructing while the queen will stay within the nest producing eggs. This whole process will take a few weeks and it’s uncommon indeed to come across a wasps’ nest before to June. The busiest phase of nest formation is generally the month of June and wasps’ nest control always guess that the wasps’ nest season generally starts about the third week in June. If left to its own devices the nest proceeds to progress over the summer and based on conditions and availability to food will contain in between 5000 – 30,000 wasps at its peak. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside the nest they’re repaid by the larvae which exude a sweet sticky material that the wasps long for and subsequently this is their motivation to raise their young. Up to around August time the nest makes only sterile females but as the days begin to shorten it makes its last batch of larvae which are new queens and males. Commonly a nest will generate up to two thousand new queens. Naturally these brand new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the winter time. It’s at this point when wasps often tend to be their most problematical. When the nest is no longer developing young, the worker wasps are lacking their sweet fix and set out needing sweet foods. They start feeding on rotting fruit and as they are more or less jobless they turn into a nuisance pest. It is now when nearly all stings occur. It’s also the moment when coping with a wasps’ nest becomes significantly more difficult since when the queens come out they will cease to return back to the nest and so are not eliminated by any pesticide inside of it. At this stage of the year we have countless reports of individuals getting a large number of wasps within their homes every day, these are the new queens searching for hibernating places. Many Local Authorities at this point of the season will advise enquirers to leave the nest be as ‘it should go away soon’. This is often in fact the very worst thing to do because the queens will appear making the total job more tricky. Once this emergence of queens has commenced, normally from mid-September, it is usually essential to carry out supplementary work, for instance smoking or fogging the attic to destroy these queens which of course carries supplementary charges. The best recommendation wasps’ nest control can give is when you have got a wasps’ nest get it eradicated in advance of September and this will save you lots of trouble. Left alone a wasps nest can live through up until the first main freeze of wintertime, they survive later in to the the autumn months than some people think. wasps’ nest control regularly 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 cold weather comes the queens hibernate and all the other wasps, workers and males, die off. The nest itself is then exhausted, it will never be made use of again and for that reason there is not any benefit at all in making an attempt to remove it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified ovipositor and as a consequence only female wasps are able to sting but very few would be prepared to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp confronting them. In The Uk we now have 3 varieties of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent invader from the continent which crossed the channel here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more species of wasps in the UK although they do not trouble us as undesirable pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in The Uk, mostly confined to the southerly counties but wasps’ nest control did deal with a hornets’ nest around 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 wasps’ nest control to identify the species 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 absolutely the exact same treatment. What controls the number and size of wasps’ nests is not the severity of the previous winter but the 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 happened in 2012. There was a very early warm period for around 6 weeks from mid-February and right through March. This helped bring the wasp queens from hibernation early on but unfortunately 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 came to be a dreadful summer for wasps.
