Wasp Life Cycle
There are seven species of social wasps in the UK, it is very likely your wasps are 'The common wasp, Vespula vulgaris' or 'The German wasp, Vespula germanica'.
The Wasp nest starts life in the spring by the queen, the position of the nest varies but most likely will be located in dry and undisturbed places such as loft spaces or out buildings.
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, when the grubs hatch the queen feeds them until they are ready to hatch as worker Wasps.
By July there are sufficient adult workers to take over duties of building the nest and feeding the grubs.
Nest building continues until the colony consists of many 1000's of workers.
In late summer the queen begins to produce reproductive females and males and in the autumn male and female Wasps leave the nest to mate, once mating has finished the male life cycle ends and dies. The new fertilized Queens hibernate over winter, emerging from hibernation in the spring to begin the life cycle again by building her own nest.
