A nearby wasp’s nest during summer can be a real nuisance, causing concern and fear if they are located in the areas we live, work and play.

The cycle of a wasp’s life begins in spring as the days warm up and the queen wasp awakes from hibernation. During the winter months there are no active wasp nests, but on the arrival of spring, the queen wasps begin seeking suitable locations to start a nest.

Hibernation is a vulnerable period in the queen wasp’s life. Predators such as spiders often catch and kill the hibernating wasps. Some people assume that a particularly cold winter will kill hibernating wasps, but there is little evidence for it. Warm winters are in fact more disruptive to a hibernating wasp, as she may awaken too early. Building and expanding the nest

Once the queen wasp has chosen a nesting site, she begins construction by stripping wood from local sources such as fence panels and shed walls, with her mandibles. White streaks or ‘tramlines’ on wooden fixtures are a good indicator that a wasp is building a nest nearby. The white marks can be treated with Curptinol and similar substances. The queen chews the wood, which is made into a pulp waxy cellulose material that is used to build the nest.

The queen has to find a solid structure to attach the nest to e.g a roof rafter. From this sturdy base, a stalk is constructed (called a petiole), around which cells are layered, in a similar manner to beehives. The queen lays her eggs in these cells, which hatch into larvae. The queen must forage for food to feed the larvae, which grow quickly on a diet of insect flesh. The larvae soon enough become adult wasps, with particular duties to the nest, and by midsummer the colony can be densely populated. Identifying a wasp nest identifying a wasp nest is easy when you know what to look for. Two basic questions can help you establish the owners of a nearby nest:

  1. What is happening?
  2. What can you see?

By midsummer, wasp nests are well populated and an almost constant flow of wasps will be visible from the nest during the day. Sometimes the nest itself is not visible, having been built within a crevice or behind a screen, but the busy entrance hole will still reveal its whereabouts. Locating the nest If a large number of wasps consistently inhabit your garden then it means you either have a wasp nest close by, or an inviting food source in the open. Scout wasps seek sweet things for the adult wasp colony to feed on, and once a source is located they relay the location to the nest who descend in large numbers to feed, sometimes several hundred at a time.

If this is happening then identifying and removing the food source will solve the problem. Bins in particular attract wasps, so make sure the lid is closed and that there are no small holes on it.

If you are convinced a nest is nearby however, then the first step is locating it. Simply watching the flight path of the wasps should reveal where they are coming from. The most common place for a nest is in the eaves of roofs, so prioritize your search there. There will be a substantial amount of traffic near the entrance, giving away its location.

Rotting fascia s and soffit boards around the house also offer easy entrance points for wasps to build nests. Even the holes that cables pass through are large enough for wasps to enter.
