Wasps Wirral, Chester and Ellesmere Port
Common Wasp

Vespula vulgaris 
Wasps are a very common pest in Britain. They are a robust insect with a venomous sting.

They search the environment for insects to take back to the nest to feed to their young. The adults feed on nectar, soft fruit and a pulp the young wasp grubs feed back to them.

The wasp nests are built in hollow trees, old rodent holes and in the eaves of houses.

The nest is made out of paper. It is made by chewing wood from dead trees and fences and mixing it with saliva to make the paper. The nest is built in combs.
Each wasp colony contains a single queen and in the UK only lasts for a single year. Most nests will die out by November. The only wasp to survive is the queen who will hibernate away from the nest over winter. 

Queens start their new nests in early spring. They start with around 30 eggs which the queen guards in her newly constructed nest.

When these first few wasps hatch the queen can stop foraging for food and concentrate on reproduction. 
The nest grows in numbers throughout the spring and summer and can be as many as 10,000 individuals by the end of autumn.

Wasp nests are treated by using an insecticidal dust that is injected into the nest.

If the nest is in a roof space it can be treated either from inside the roof void or from the outside using a lance or dust gun. The photo above is a wasp nest in a roof void before treatment. The photo to the right shows the lance running into the nest (after treatment). 
Treating from the outside is an easier option but the nest entrance hole must be identified.

The photo to the left is a nest being treated on a flat roof with a dust gun. 

To the right is a nest in an eave being treated with an extendable lance.
