Wasps become a nuisance  usually at the end of June beginning of July, as the honeydew from the aphids is coming to an end, so they need to get their sugar fix from elsewhere, which means annoying us.

The Queen wasp starts looking for a home in April/May once she comes out of hibernation. She then starts to build her nest and produce young, once she has produced enough young, she will then stay in the nest. The nest can be anywhere from a loft, shed, cavity wall, bush/tree.

If you see anything like the picture below, this is what is called a queen cup and is where the queen hibernates if seen during the winter months, if you see one from April/May  this will be the starting of a Wasp nest.

If you have a problem with wasps please ring or message us.
