First and foremost, please ensure that you actually do have a wasps’ nest, you’d be astonished at how commonly we are called out to what is meant to be a wasps’ nest and it turns out to be bees, particularly solitary bees in the the spring months. If you have a wasps’ nest you will see loads of wasps entering and leaving from just one spot, if they’re solitary bees they will be entering a lot of holes everywhere in the walls, particularly airbricks and drainage holes in pvc windows. These solitary bees are unhazardous and they cannot sting and no actions are possible or necessary. As a guideline you can’t have an active wasps’ nest before at the very least mid to late May as a result of the lifecycle of the wasp. Any noticed before mid-May will be bees with no shadow of a doubt. Few insects stimulate dread as the wasp with lots of people responding very poorly to their stings. Sadly every single year in the British Isles people do pass away as a result of of having been stung by wasps, often after accidentally annoying the nest.

Nest Growth throughout the seasonA wasps’ nest will start at the end of spring frequently around early April when the queens wake up and begin the process of nest building. As opposed to honey bees, only queens live through the winter months, the remainder of the nest having died off the previous winter. The queen builds a very small nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she makes by combining decaying wood with saliva. This basic nest is roughly the dimension of a golf ball, within it she lays approximately 20 eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she nourishes with various insects until they pupate and grow into perfectly fledged wasps. These young wasps will then assume control of nest developing while the queen will remain inside of the nest laying eggs. This entire process will require a few weeks and it is uncommon indeed to discover a wasps’ nest prior to June. The busiest phase of nest building is typically the month of June and Wigan wasps’ nest control always guess that the wasping season generally starts about the 3rd week in June. If left untreated the nest proceeds to grow over the summertime and based on weather and accessibility to food will consist of anywhere between five thousand – thirty thousand wasps at its optimum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside the nest they are repaid by the larvae which express a sweet sticky material that the wasps want and subsequently this is their motivation to feed their young. Up to around August time the nest creates only sterile females but as the days begin to draw in it generates its final set of larvae which are new queens and males. Typically a nest will generate around two thousand new queens. Normally these new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the cold months of winter. It’s at this stage when wasps often tend to be their most bothersome. When the nest is no longer making young, the worker wasps are missing out on their sweet fix and begin needing sweet foods. They begin feeding on rotting fruit and as they are essentially jobless they develop into a nuisance pest. It is now when the majority of stings occur. It’s also the time when destroying a wasps’ nest becomes considerably more difficult since when the queens emerge they will cease to return back to the nest and so are not eradicated by any insecticide inside it. At this time of the year we have numerous stories of customers getting a significant number of wasps within their homes everyday, these are the new queens looking for hibernating sites. Many Local Authorities at this point of the season will advise people to leave the nest be as ‘it should go away soon’. This is frequently actually the worst possible thing that can be done since the queens will emerge making the whole process more tricky. Once this producing of queens has started, usually from mid-September, it is commonly recommended to undertake extra work, such as smoking or fogging the loft to get rid of these queens which normally carries supplementary charges. The best suggestion Wigan wasps’ nest control can provide is when you have got a wasps’ nest get it eliminated before September and this will save you lots of hassle. Left alone a wasps nest can continue up until the first main freeze of winter, they live later in to the the autumn months than some people believe. Wigan wasps’ nest control normally tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into early winter and the latest we’ve destroyed an live nest was Xmas eve! When the winter weather comes the queens hibernate and all the other wasps, workers and males, die off. The nest itself is then spent, it will never be made use of again and as a result there is not any benefit at all in attempting to remove it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified egg laying tube and that is why 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 invader from European countries which came here here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more kinds of wasps in Britain however they do not trouble us as unwanted pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in The Uk, generally limited to the southern counties but Wigan 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 come across this far north. There is no necessity for Wigan wasps’ nest control to identify the kind of wasp we’re dealing with to be able to eliminate the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a similar biology and react to precisely the exact same treatment. What controls the amount and dimensions of wasps’ nests isn’t the severity of the preceding winter but the weather condition in the spring. The hibernating queens can endure any amount of cold however the worst of all scenario for them is just what transpired in 2012. There was a very early warm interval for about six weeks from mid-February and all throughout March. This brought the wasp queens from hibernation ahead of time but sadly for them it turned much colder and then there wasn’t any food available so they starved. As a result the summer of 2012 turned into a bad summer for wasps.
