Vespula Vulgaris | Vespula Germanica
Hibernation & spring emergence
For wasps, the year starts in Spring, usually around April, when the Queen wasp comes out of hibernation. Without a nest, the queen will begin a search for a suitable place to start a colony.
Some pest controllers believe that cold winters kill off hibernating queen wasps in the home, but in fact most fatalities are from spiders and other insects. Warmer winters can encourage an early appearing queen wasp in the house, but lack of food during this period means it often starves.
During hibernation, a queen wasp will furl itself by tucking its wings and antennae under their bodies, as shown in the photos. Their wings must be protected if they are to start a new colony in the spring, but the antennae also play a key role in the nesting process, using them to navigate the the cells of her nest before laying her eggs. (NB. The white powder on the wasp is sawdust).
Her hind legs are used to anchor herself during winter, and her middle legs cover her wings, as the photo shows.

Here is another…

What do wasps eat?
One key misconception about wasps is that they eat insects, however this is untrue. Adult wasps lack the anatomy to consume solid foods, without the requisite mouthparts. In fact, their mouths resemble a bee’s, comprising of tubes for sucking liquids like nectar.
Their frontal mandibles are the reason many people assume adult wasps are carnivorous, but they are in fact used for dissecting prey which they feed to their young. Another important function of the mandibles is for building a nest, stripping and pulping wood which is used as the principle material. They can bite other wasps with the mandibles, commonly done if the colony is under attack, as well as for enforcing a hierarchy within a wasp colony.
Queen wasps will feed on nectar from plants much like bees do, when they first emerge from hibernation. This helps pollinate flowers in spring and early summer.
When the nests start to grow, adult wasps catch insects for the larvae to eat. The larvae regurgitate the insect meal in the form of a sugary liquid which the adult wasps consume.
Nest building and colony expansion
Having chosen a suitable location for a nest, either in a home or in the garden, the queen will seek wood to create the nest. The most readily available source for queen wasps are fencing, sheds, and garden furniture. Queen wasps stripping the wood manifests in small white lines, which are visible in the summer.
The wood is chewed and pulped with saliva and wax to make a resinous substance which the nest is made from.
This is visible in the video:
Attaching the core of the nest to a solid foundation, e.g. under a rafter, the queen builds a centre stem called a petiole, adding layers of cells around it, much in the manner of a beehive.
Within these cells, the queen will lay eggs, which she feeds once they have hatched into larvae. During this incubation phase, she continues to expand the nest by adding more cells. The larvae grow quickly, in a matter of weeks due to their protein rich diet.
How wasp larvae turn into adult wasps
Once the larvae are ready to mutate into adult wasps, they create a silk cap upon their cell, seen in the images below. One can see the larvae in the uncapped cells, which are still being fed by adult wasps, nearing the time they are ready to pupate.
When that time comes, they will spin a cap on their cell opening, and transform into a wasp after a few weeks, similar to a caterpillar’s cycle.
All adult worker wasps are female, and also lay eggs, which remain unfertilized. Unfertilized wasp eggs always produce male offspring, whilst fertilized eggs produce females. This means wasp colonies can control the gender balance of their population.
As soon as the first batch of larvae has hatched into wasps, they immediately take over the construction of the nest and feeding larvae. At this stage they will forage for insects to feed to the incubating larvae, whilst the queen takes a new role of solely laying eggs and even policing the nest.
Over the summer, the nest size grows to accommodate the numbers of larvae, with a corresponding uptake of wood collection. The nests increasingly require regulation, particularly with respect to temperature, and workers will collect water to cool down the nest, or resort to fanning their wings.
How many eggs will a queen wasp lay?
Queen wasps tend to lay around 100 eggs each day. This number pales in comparison to a queen bee, which can reach up to 2000 eggs per day.
How do wasps reproduce?
When the nest reaches full capacity, usually during late summer and beginning of autumn, the queen lays unfertilized eggs, which produce male offspring, alongside a brood of fertilized eggs, producing new queen wasps. On average, a nest will produce up to 1500 new queen wasps.
The queen will then cease to lay any more eggs. Once they have pupated, virgin queens will hatch from the fertilized eggs, and male “drone” wasps from the unfertilized eggs. These wasps leave the nest and mate with wasps from other nests to avoid inbreeding, giving a better gene distribution.
The queens, now pregnant, find a secure hibernation spot to spend the winter, whilst the male wasps die.
When will a wasp nest die off?
The nest’s downfall begins once the fertilised offspring are pupating. Whilst the timing of this changes each year, they always occur in tandem with other nests to ensure that there are enough male and female wasps to successfully mate.
With all the larvae hatched, the male wasps are left without a food source, now lacking the sugary substance the larvae produce. This is actually often the start of the troubles for people, because the male wasps go searching for other sources of sugar, commonly found in the household. Gardens, pubs, picnics, food stalls and the like, are easy targets for hungry wasps due to the exposed drinks on offer.
But with the arrival of autumn, food sources dry up, meaning the worker wasps and old queen wasps starve. Nevertheless, a large nest will battle on as long as it can scour food, and some nests do persist well into winter.
