The Wasp Life Cycle

There are approximately 9000 species of wasps in the UK, only seven of these species are social wasps and it's very likely your wasp problem is either the 'Common Wasp', 'Vespula Vulgaris' or the 'German Wasp', 'Vespula Germanica'.

The wasp nest starts life in the spring with the queen. The position of the nest varies but will always be located in a dry and undisturbed place such as a loft space or out building, also, wasp nests can be built within vegetation such as a hedge or beneath the ground!

The queen starts to construct her nest with a papery material that she makes by chewing wood mixed with saliva. The nest contains 20-30 cells in which eggs are placed, the eggs develop into grubs, the grubs are fed by the queen until they mature into adult worker wasps.

By July there are sufficient adult workers to take over duties of building the nest and feeding the grubs, meanwhile the queen continues to lay eggs with the colony possibly reaching up to 10,000 wasps or more.

In late summer the queen begins to produce reproductive males and females and soon they will leave the nest to mate. Once mating has finished the reproductive male life cycle ends and the female (Queen) will go into winter hibernation.

In late autumn with the onset of winter, the wasp nest goes into decline due to much lower air temperatures and lack of food. Once the outside air temperature drops below zero the wasp nest rapidly dies off.

The new queen emerges in the spring to begin the wasp life cycle again!
