It is not likely that the nest itself will be dangerous, most pest company’s leave it in place. But the wasp colony inside can pose a threat, especially if you bother the nest.

You mustn’t go near a nest and take risks since wasps swarm and sting if they feel threatened in any way. The process could be dangerous, which is why you should leave it to the professionals.

A pest problem can affect both commercial and domestic properties, and without proper treatment, this can cause serious health and safety concerns.

To have a safe live wasp nest removal and prevent its return in the future, a professional pest control company is needed. Apex Pest Control provides exactly that kind of excellent service to Rotherham customers.

The do-it-yourself method can be an inexpensive solution to a small infestation. If an infestation is large or a problem continues, call a fully trained professional pest control to save time, trouble, and money.



How did wasps build nests?


The walls of wasp nests are made from chewed up wood pulp and saliva, giving the nests their distinctive papery appearance.

Nests are usually built in sheltered premises with easy access to the outside world. The most likely places to find nests are wall cavities, roof spaces, underground sheds, and under eaves.


How fast do wasps make a nest?


Local pest control


Throughout the summer! A wasp colony begins building its nest in the spring, and the nest gradually grows bigger as the colony grows.

The nest reaches its peak size in autumn and is abandoned. Fertilized queens survive the winter, usually hibernating in roofs, basements, or old trees. In the following year, the whole process begins again; nests aren’t reused.



Why do wasps nest in houses?


A wasp’s nest often forms in small, cosy holes found on high shelves, in cabinets, and even inside electrical socket pins! The nest usually has a light brown hue, as well as the colour of the soil.

The returning wasp is collecting soil and all that it needs to build its nest from the outside. Soon, the nest will start breeding, spawning more wasps.



How do queen wasps reproduce?


Toward the end of summer/beginning of autumn, the nest will reach its maximum size, and the queen will lay queen eggs and drone (unfertilized) eggs. Each nest will produce around 1000/1500 queens.

Upon laying these eggs, the existing queen will not lay more eggs. As soon as they have pupated, these eggs become virgin queens and male drones.

They leave the nest and travel to particular areas for mating. Drones are not believed to mate with queens from the same nest due to their ability to see and recognise the same nest/colony members. In this way, interbreeding is prevented, and genes are evenly distributed.

After mating, the fertilised queens find a place to hibernate over the winter months, and the drones die.



What wasps are in the UK?

  • European hornet (Vespa crabro)

  • Dolichovespula species

DolichoVespula has three species in the United Kingdom. DolichoVespula or (Vespula vulgaris) is the most common type of wasps in the UK.


Why wasps sting?


Wasps sting humans when they feel threatened. In the wild, wasps use stings as a way to catch their prey, but in humans, it is merely a defence mechanism.

Two main reasons might lead to stings from wasps.

  • Protection – A female wasp, like most animals, will protect her nest if it feels attacked or threatened with the only defence mechanism she has – her stinger!
  • Anger – Wasps behave in many ways like humans. They get upset. Normally, this is a result of them feeling threatened as well. Waving newspaper and arms constantly can cause the wasp to feel very annoyed and threatened.
