Wasp Nest Removal and Control in Bournemouth
Wasps are a common sight in the UK throughout the summer months, particularly in the south of England and Bournemouth. The Common Wasp (Vespula vulgaris) is about 2cm long with bright yellow and black bands along their body. Wasps often choose to nest in dry places in and around buildings and we’re most commonly called to remove wasps nests from lofts, roofs and garages. We offer a 6 month guarantee on our wasp nest removal services and will also provide you with tips and advice on how to proof your home from these pests.
Key Facts About Wasps
- Wasps are about 2 cm long, they have bright yellow and black bands along the body, with an obvious ‘waist’ between the thorax and abdomen.
- Wasps can sting more than once as they have smooth stings which can be withdrawn from the victim.
- Attracted to sweet foods which often brings them into contact with humans during the summer months where customers of pubs etc can be plagued by wasps buzzing around their beer or food, increasing the risk of stings.
Wasp Life Cycle
Queen Wasps emerge from hibernation during the spring, and they search for a suitable location in which to start a new colony. She then starts the process of building a nest. Chewed up wood mixed with saliva is used to make wasp paper, from which the nest will be constructed from. A few eggs are laid, which develop into non-reproductive workers. These workers eventually take over the development of the nest, while the queen then settles in to lay thousands of eggs. Towards the end of autumn a number of eggs develop into new queens and males, which leave the nest and mate. The new queens search out a suitable overwintering site, to then emerge in the spring and begin the process again.
