WHY DO WE TREAT WASPS NESTS
Wasps are One of Britain's most feared and potentially aggressive pests, wasps are known for unprovoked attacks and stings.
The reality is that wasp usually only attack when it feels under threat.
When a wasp is in distress the wasp emits a pheromone that causes other nearby members of the nest to come and protect the wasp.
A wasp sting can be very painful and if you are sensitive to a wasp sting it could send you into anaphylaxis - a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction.
Having a wasp nest in close proximity to your house or business will lead to a nuisance during the summer months when we want to enjoy the outdoors.
Should we always treat a wasp nest?
No, wasps can be beneficial to the Eco system, wasps caries out pollination and help to keep garden populations down by feeding on some common garden pests such as caterpillars and slugs.
Wasp nests should only be treated where it poses a risk to the public, if it is away from people or in a part of the garden rarely used just let it be.
WASPS HABITS AND BIOLOGY
Around the beginning of spring queen wasps will come out of hibernation and start constructing a nest out of chewed bark and start laying eggs.The queen continues to lay eggs throughout the summer until early autumn, worker wasps will take over the construction and and food gathering duties,by which time the nest can contain 3,000 to 5,000 individuals.
The largest wasps' nest ever recorded was in New Zealand and measured 3.7 m long and was probably made by German wasps.During the later part of the summer the nest produces fertile males and new young queens who emerge and mate. The males die and the now fertilised queens fly away to find somewhere to hibernate for the winter Nest are commonly found in roof spaces, cavities in walls and trees.
Wasps are distinguishable from bees by their pointed lower abdomens and the narrow "waist," called a petiole, that separates the abdomen from the thorax.
They come in every colour imaginable, from the familiar yellow to brown, metallic blue, and bright red, however in the UK we mostly deal with (Vespula vulgaris) and German Wasps (Vespula germanica)
All wasps build nests, ranging in size and styles
