Firstly, please ensure that you actually do have a wasps’ nest, you would be surprised at how many times we are called out to what is supposed 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 spot, if they’re solitary bees they will be entering a lot of holes everywhere in the walls, especially airbricks and drainage holes in plastic window frames.
These solitary bees are not at all damaging and they can’t sting and no remedies are available or required. As a guideline you will not have an active wasps’ nest before at the very least the middle of May as a result of the life cycle of the wasp. Any seen before mid-May will be bees with no shadow of a doubt.
Few insects trigger quite as much concern as the wasp with lots of people reacting very poorly to their stings. Sadly every single year in the British Isles persons do pass away as a result of of receiving a wasp sting, often after accidentally upsetting the nest.

Over the bulk of the summertime getting rid of a wasps’ nest is mostly a simple procedure of treating it using a little bit of of pesticide and returning wasps spread it about the interior of the nest, within an hour or so the rest of the colony is dead.

Nest Growth through the summer
A wasps’ nest commences at the end of spring in most cases around early April when the queens wake up and commence nest building. In comparison to honey bees, only queens survive the winter time, the rest of the colony having died off the previous winter.
The queen builds a tiny nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she creates by mixing decaying wood with saliva. This basic nest is about the size of a golf ball, inside it she lays something like twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she sustains with various grubs until they pupate and hatch into fully fledged wasps. These fresh wasps will then take control of nest building while the queen will stay inside of the nest producing eggs.
This entire process involves a number of weeks and it really is unusual indeed to come across a wasps’ nest before to June. The most active period of nest formation is usually in June and Harrier wasps’ nest control always estimate that the wasps’ nest season normally starts around the 3rd week in June.
If left to its own devices the nest proceeds to grow over the the summer season and dependent on weather conditions and availability to food will hold in between 5000 – thirty thousand wasps at its maximum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside of the nest they are repaid by the larvae which release a sweet sticky substance which the wasps long for and therefore this is their motivation to take care their young.
Up to around August time the nest produces only sterile females but as the days begin to draw in it will make its last set of larvae which are new queens and males. Generally a nest will generate up to 2,000 new queens. Naturally these brand new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the wintertime.
It’s at this stage when wasps often tend to be their most problematic. When the nest is no longer generating young, the worker wasps are lacking their sweet fix and set out needing sweet foods. They begin feeding on rotting fruit and as they are essentially out of work they transform into a annoying pest. It is now when nearly all stings occur. It’s also the moment when dealing with a wasps’ nest becomes noticeably more complicated since when the queens come out they will cease to go back to the nest and so are not eliminated by any pesticide inside it.
At this time of the year we have countless reports of individuals getting a significant quantity of wasps inside of their properties everyday, 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 be as ‘it should go away soon’. This is often in fact the very worst thing to do considering that the queens will emerge making the complete job more tricky.
Once this process has begun, typically from mid-September, it is commonly necessary to undertake supplementary work, such as smoking or fogging the attic to kill these queens which obviously carries further costs. The best recommendation Harrier wasps’ nest control can provide is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it eliminated in advance of September and this will save you lots of trouble. Left to its own devices 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 think.
Harrier wasps’ nest control typically tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into late November and December and the latest we’ve dealt with an active nest was Xmas eve! When the cold weather comes the queens hibernate and all the other wasps, workers and males, die out. The nest itself is then spent, it will never be made use of again and which means that there is not any gain at all in making an effort to get rid of it.
More about wasps
A wasps’ stinger is a altered egg laying tube and therefore only female wasps can sting but few would like to take a risk on guessing the right sex of the wasp confronting them.
In The United Kingdom we now have three types of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent incomer from the continent which arrived here here in the 80s Dolichovespula media. There are more kinds of wasps in the UK however they usually do not trouble us as undesirable pests.
We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in Britain, largely limited to the southerly counties but Harrier wasps’ nest control did destroy a hornets’ nest within the Knutsford area in the summer of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever found this far north.
There is no need for Harrier 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 very similar biology and react to exactly the identical treatment.
What governs the number and dimensions of wasps’ nests is actually not the severity of the last winter but the weather conditions in the spring. The hibernating queens can survive any amount of cold however the worst of all scenario for them is exactly what occurred in 2012. There was a very early warm interval for around six weeks from mid-February and throughout March. This brought the wasp queens from hibernation ahead of time but unluckily for them it turned really cold and then there wasn’t any food for them so they starved. As a result the summer of 2012 turned out to be a bad summer for wasps.
