The biology of all of the type of wasps destroyed by Wasp Nest Control Manchester And Trafford is exactly the same.
The wasp nest is started from a single wasp queen during the early spring. On awaking from her hibernation in late March or early April she will feed herself on aphids and grubs before starting to build the nest.
She makes a cocoon slightly smaller compared to golf ball using ‘wasp paper’, generated by chewing rotten wood and combining it with her saliva.
Within the rudimentary nest she’ll lay several eggs, usually less than 20 and raise these baby wasps until they’re able to fly. As soon as the first batch of wasps are flying she goes inside the nest and never appears again. Her job will now be to lay eggs and she is cared for by the workers.

For most of the summer the wasps brought to life by the nest are sterile females but as autumn gets near the nest will start to make new queens and males. On average a nest will produce about 2000 new queens.

Each time a worker wasp feeds a wasp grub in the nest the wasp grub produces a sweet sticky substance that the worker wasps crave. However once we move into late summer the nest no longer develops grubs therefore the workers cannot acquire their ‘fix’ of the sweet substance. It is at this time of the season that they’ll now start to be troublesome, switching from a protein diet of aphids and grubs to a new diet of sweet foods for example fruit.
This is the reason that they will cluster around your barbecues and beer gardens, looking for sweet food and becoming an over-all annoyance.

Manchester Pest Control Wasps’ Nests Destroyed £29.50
Manchester Pest Control Wasps’ Nests Destroyed £29.50 – The very early mild spring of 2009 has been exceptionally kind to the hymenoptera (wasps, bees and ants) in the Manchester area, and here at Manchester Pest control we reported our first wasps’ nest call out on May 11th of this year, virtually a full month earlier than expected.
This means that wasps will be exceptionally plentiful this summer and the nests will be much larger than normal by the end of summer.
By the end of summer a large wasps’ nest may contain 20 – 30,000 wasps and with the milder weather many nests can continue to be active into December, with many active call outs being received during November.
Manchester Pest Control charge just £29.50 to destroy a wasps’ nest and can usually provide a same day service, although this may vary during the busy summer period.
However, once the nest has begun producing the new queens (approx 2000 per nest) from around mid-September then additional work to destroy these queens, such as smoking or fogging, may be necessary at additional cost.
