Wasps are seasonal pest insects, with their queen emerging from hibernation in spring, rapidly start building the nest and the wasp queen lays her first eggs. Nests are often excavated in dry soil or built in roof gaps. Although recent years have seen wasps becoming active in early April or May, the first worker wasps usually emerge in early summer months, usually in June.

Autumn is mainly the mating season between the males and queens and sees the social degeneration of the nest, as the workers may not return. During the cold season, the queen hibernates and all the males and worker wasps die. The complex nest is made redundant and never re-used, although it has been known for an adjacent nest to be built, so extra attention should be paid when removing old nests, especially during active seasons.

  • Spot the nest! – this is usually the best indicator of an infestation.
  • Live or dead insects

Different Types of Wasps

The Common Wasp

(Vespa vulgaris)

The most direct method of treating wasps is to destroy the nest; often an easy task for the trained pest control professionals, when they can be located/reached.

When confronted with commercial / Industrial wasp problem when the nest cannot be located, the wasp population can be reduced by the use of professional traps.

Insecticidal baits are placed to intercept the wasp on its way to and from the feeding site. These traps will catch adult wasps before they become an annoying pest. Wasp traps work very well in pub gardens, picnic area and other external eating areas.
