Wasps belong to the same order of insects as ants and are some of the most highly evolved insects known to man.
Wasps are seasonal and spring sees the emergence of the queen from hibernation. She quickly gets to work by building a nest and laying her first eggs. Wasp Nests are often excavated in dry soil or constructed in roof voids. The first workers emerge a few weeks later usually in early June; however, in recent years this activity has started as early as April/May. Summer is spent on construction of the nest and the queen continues to lay eggs and numbers of workers reach in the region of 30,000. New queens are born, numbering 2000 or so and further males are developed to fertilise the new queens.
Wasps can be a huge problem for any home, and wasp infestations should be taken very seriously. Wasps are naturally defensive of their nests and will sting anyone or anything (unprovoked) just for venturing to near to their nest. Wasps can be harmful, this is a risk and a cause for concern if you have small children or pets especially those with an allergic reaction to them, and you should never try to deal with the problem yourself. So if you have a wasp nest close to your house or in your garden, the easiest and safest option is to have it treated by a professional pest control expert.
The most direct method of treating Wasps is to destroy the nest, using an appropriate insecticide. Always seek professional advice and never attempt to destroy a nest yourself.
