Wasps: wasps are parasites, and feed on nectar only as adults. Many wasps are predatory; use other insects (often paralyzed) as food for their larvae. 

Wasp nest treatment is important if the nest poses a significant risk like if it’s located inside your home or another location that you visit regularly, or if someone is allergic to wasp stings.

Common types of wasps found in South Shields:

  • German Wasp (Grey nest)
  • Tree Wasp, Very aggressive not common
  • Norwegian Wasp, Not found in southern England.
  • Cuckoo Wasp

Life cycle of Wasps: The queen wasp emerges from hibernation in the spring and builds a round nest 2-3 ins. in diameter from chewed wood pulp which is obtained from dead trees, fences, etc. This nest will contain a small number of cells into which the queen lays her eggs, one per cell. The eggs hatch into larvae and are fed by the queen fragments of insects (the Queen herself feeds on nectar). The cells hang downwards and the larvae are prevented from falling out by keeping part of their bodies in the egg cavity which was glued to the ceiling of the cell when laid by the queen. After pupation workers (sterile females) emerge and take over the running of the nest from the queen who devotes the rest of her life to egg laying. This occurs late June to early July. The nest can grow considerably during this time and may at its peak, contain 10-15,000 wasps.

Wasp nest removal:  If you want to remove the wasp nest then we recommend you wait at least 4 weeks before doing so. In a lot of cases the wasp nest is not accessible. The nest may be in a cavity wall that cannot be seen.
