Wasp nests
1. Wasps’ nests contain different types of wasp which each have different functions. The queen lays eggs which hatch into workers, whose job it is to scout for food, defend the nest, and make it bigger as the colony grows. By late summer, a single wasps’ nest may house in the region of 10,000 wasps

2. At this stage, the queen will lay eggs containing young queens and male drones, whose sole task is to mate with a queen. Having performed this function, the drones then die.

3. When winter comes, the population of the nest dies out, with the exception of the young queens, who will find a safe place to hibernate until they are awoken by the warmer weather in the spring. The queens will then find a suitable place to build a nest, lay their first eggs, and the cycle begins again.

4. When building her nest, the queen strips wood from nearby sources such as trees, fence panels and the walls of garden sheds. She chews the wood into a pulp, creating the material that will form the basis of the nest. European hornets, which are much larger than your average wasp, can do a large amount of damage in the process.

5. Wasps are active during the daytime, but return to their nests at night. If you are aware of a nest’s location and think this might be a good time to try and move or treat it, think again – they will still emerge to defend it if they need to.

Wasp feeding habits

6. Wasps live off nectar and insects, particularly aphids, which is why wasps can be found on plants in people’s gardens. Aphids are very sweet tasting, and when supplies run low from August onwards, this is why wasps are drawn to sugary foods, fruit and meat, becoming an increasing threat and nuisance in our kitchens, and at picnics and barbeques.

7. Wasps will also eat caterpillars, and therefore have some benefit to Cheshire’s farmers and keen gardeners, whose plants or crops may suffer severe damage if caterpillars were not naturally culled in this way.

8. Wasps do not swarm in the same way that bees do, and may only appear to swarm when they are collecting food in large numbers.

9. The bright yellow stripes of a wasp serve the purpose of putting off potential predators, but this does not deter certain birds, mammals, and reptiles even if there is the risk of being stung.

Wasp stings
10. Wasps are known for their aggression, particularly if they feel that they or their nest are under attack. There is a pheromone present in their venom which can incite aggression in other wasps, and can result in them attacking in large numbers. Swatting and killing a wasp may result in the release of this pheromone, so be prepared that other wasps might arrive on the scene soon afterwards.

11. A sting from a wasp can be painful, although in most cases it will prove harmless. However, it can be sore and itchy while inflamed, and scratching the affected area may cause an infection. The NHS advises that stings should be cleansed with soap and water, and that a cold compress will also help to reduce the swelling. A lump should then form, which will heal after a few days.

12. Multiple wasp stings, or stings on sensitive areas of the body such as the face and neck, may require medical attention.

13. Some people may go into anaphylactic shock when stung by a wasp. This is a very serious, fast-occurring reaction which can be fatal if left untreated. Symptoms may include feeling faint or nauseous, or passing out completely. The venom may also cause muscles to swell not just in the location of the sting but elsewhere on the body, including the face and neck, and is likely to affect or impede breathing.

14. If you or someone close to you experiences a severe reaction to a wasp sting as described above, call hospital immediately.
