As the summer period progresses and autumn rapidly approaches, wasps can become more of a problem, not only to humans, but to the general bee population as well. There are six species of wasp in the United Kingdom that could cause serious problems for bees and these include the common wasp, the German wasp and the European hornet. Their respective nests can be found in trees, shrubs, hedges, underground and in many cases human properties! This year, so far, has seen a dramatic increase in the number of nests found in general houses, outbuildings, such as sheds or garages and even in...

WASPS ARE VERY CLEVER!

        The wasp season is certainly upon us and it is VERY busy! When selecting a nest site, the queen wasp can be very inventive and take advantage of whatever locations take her fancy. It might be where she has been hibernating over the winter in a cosy shed. Where there is plenty of room to expand in a dry environment, perfect for producing more wasps.       Outside may be a better option, how about under the eaves of a house ?         Or maybe putting a wasp nest in a shrub in the garden?   Or how about building inside a hedge?           If the queen wasp is a little more adventurous...

The first sign of a pending wasps nest is the queen wasp’s nest, the size of a golf ball, in a loft, shed or other quiet position, somewhere in Moordown, Bournemouth, where she has spent the winter months.           Cells are built into the nest a few at a time to begin with in Parkstone, Poole until the first batch of eggs pupate into workers.         As more worker wasps arrive the nest is enlarged in Christchurch and full scale production can commence!         Depending on the weather and temperatures, the nest can grow rapidly in Ringwood and further layers are filled with yet more eggs....

WASP UPDATE

Wasps are now really active in all the local areas of Dorset including Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Verwood and Ringwood in Hampshire. Wasp nests are being found in properties in roof voids, in gardens, in bushes, trees, outbuildings and even in the ground from West Moors to Sandbanks, Wimborne to Highcliffe and Branksome to Ferndown. Wasps are very good at adapting the local environment to suit their needs and this is especially true when foliage is removed to allow easier flight paths to an established wasps nest. They can also excavate soil at an alarming rate to increase underground...

The heatwave has certainly triggered a flurry of activity, not least concerning wasps. The calls for bee swarms are still happening, but general wasp activity has really accelerated, with many properties reporting unwanted invasions from wasps. It does not matter if the property is a house, bungalow, shed or even a caravan. A wasps nest can be found wherever the conditions are suitable for the queen wasp to set up home and build the initial nest. If a ground location is chosen, then once the nest goes into full production, a lot of soil excavation will take place to keep track of the...
