To begin with, please ensure that you genuinely do have a wasps’ nest, you would be amazed at how regularly we are called out to what is expected to be a wasps’ nest and it proves to be to be bees, frequently solitary bees in the early spring. Whenever you have a wasps’ nest you will see an abundance of wasps entering and leaving from just one entrance, if they’re just solitary bees they will be going into many of holes all over in the brickwork, specially airbricks and drainage holes in plastic windows. These solitary bees are not at all damaging and stingless and no actions are possible or required. As a rule of thumb you won’t have an active wasps’ nest until at the very least mid to late May owing to the lifecycle of the wasp. Any viewed before mid-May will be bees with no trace of a doubt. Few insects generate concern as the wasp with a lot of people responding very seriously to their stings. Unfortunately every single year in the UK people do die as a result of of being stung by wasps, often after unintentionally annoying the nest.

Nest Growth throughout the seasonA wasps’ nest begins at the end of spring normally around early April when the queens wake up and begin nest making. In contrast to honey bees, only queens live through the cold months of winter, the remainder of the workers having died off the previous winter. The queen develops a very small nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she creates by combining rotting wood with saliva. This initial nest is approximately the proportions of a golf ball, inside it she lays approximately 20 eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she feeds with various grubs until they pupate and hatch out into perfectly fledged wasps. These juvenile wasps will then assume control of nest making while the queen will stay inside the nest producing eggs. This whole process involves a few weeks and it really is unusual indeed to discover a wasps’ nest prior to June. The most hectic phase of nest formation is commonly the month of June and Wirral wasps’ nest control always calculate that the wasps’ nest season generally starts about the 3rd week in June. If left alone the nest carries on to grow over the summer time and depending on weather and accessibility to food will contain in between five thousand – thirty thousand wasps at its optimum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside the nest they’re rewarded by the larvae which release a sweet sticky material that the wasps hunger for and therefore this is their motivation to sustain their young. Up to around August time the nest creates only sterile females but as the days begin to shorten it creates its final batch of larvae which are new queens and males. In most cases a nest will produce up to two thousand new queens. Naturally these brand new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the winter months. It’s at this point when wasps often tend to be their most bothersome. When the nest is no longer making young, the worker wasps are missing their sweet fix and begin needing sweet foods. They begin feeding on rotting fruit and as they are essentially out of work they develop 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 significantly more difficult since when the queens emerge they will no longer return back to the nest and so are not killed by any pesticide within it. At this stage of the year we have countless reports of persons getting a significant number of wasps inside of their houses each day, these are the new queens searching for hibernating places. Many Local Councils at this point of the season will tell enquirers to leave the nest be as ‘it should disappear soon’. This is often in reality the worst possible thing you can do because the queens will emerge making the whole job more complicated. Once this process has started, typically from mid-September, it is normally recommended to undertake supplementary work, for example smoking or fogging the attic to kill these queens which obviously carries additional expenses. The best guideline Wirral wasps’ nest control can give is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it eliminated ahead of September and this will save you lots of trouble. Left untreated a wasps nest can survive up until the first main freeze of winter, they survive later in to the the autumn months than some people believe. Wirral wasps’ nest control normally tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into late November and December and the latest we’ve dealt with an active nest was Christmas eve! When the winter 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 accordingly there is not any advantage at all in trying to remove it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a modified egg laying tube and because of this only female wasps are able to sting but few would like to gamble on guessing the right sex of the wasp in question. In The United Kingdom 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 came here here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more varieties of wasps in Britain however they don’t bother us as undesirable pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in The Uk, largely confined to the southern counties but Wirral wasps’ nest control did handle a hornets’ nest around the Knutsford area in the summertime of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever come across this far north. There is no need for Wirral wasps’ nest control to differentiate the type of wasp we’re dealing with to be able to get rid of the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a comparable biology and react to absolutely the identical treatment. What controls the number and size of wasps’ nests is actually not the severity of the preceding winter but the conditions in the spring. The hibernating queens can endure any amount of cold however the worst of all circumstance for them is precisely what happened in 2012. There was a very early warm interval for about six weeks from mid-February and all over March. This brought the wasp queens from hibernation early but sadly for them it turned much colder and then there wasn’t any food for them so they starved. As a consequence the summer of 2012 became a awful summer for wasps.
