Arguable one of the most feared insects in the UK. The common wasp is associated with random and unprovoked stings, but actually, rarely sting unless they feel threatened.
Getting rid of wasps from your home or work space should always be left to a professional pest control company, such as The Rat Catchers, as wasp stings can be both painful and in some cases, life threatening. Our professional wasp extermination experts can eliminate a wasp nest easily and safely, no matter where it is located.
Generally, wasps build their nests in undisturbed, protected areas, such as roof/loft spaces, garden sheds, in thick shrubbery or in gaps between bricks in a building. The wasp nest is built from a strong, lightweight, waterproof, papier mache material, which the wasps produce by chewing wood and mixing it with their own saliva. These structures can often be found hanging in the corners of attic and should only be destroyed by a trained pest control professional.
Diet - What Wasps Eat
At the height of the wasp season; between August and September, the worker wasps (sterile females) can become a major nuisance, as they turn their attention to foraging for sweet foods. Prior to this period, the worker wasps, who are responsible for providing food to the queen wasp and her grubs, provide other insects as a food sources to the nest. In this way, wasps are also know as natures natural pest controllers, even though this aspect of their existence, isn't always know to humans.
The Queen Wasp
The queen wasp, which is usually larger than the workers (around 20mm in length), hibernates over the winter and begins making her nest and laying eggs, during early spring. Adult worker wasps tend to die off as the weather starts to get colder and food becomes scares.
