Wasps usually become a pest during the latter part of Summer when the nest stops producing a sweet reward for all the worker wasps so then that is when they start annoying humans as they look for their sweet fix. At this point in the Summer a nest will have thousands of wasps. A nest is created when the queen leaves her solitary nest that she will have stayed in over winter and she will look for a suitable place to build a nest. This can be anywhere but you will usually find that they have entered your premises through an air-break, a gap in the tiles or similar. The Queen will then start off the nest before she starts producing eggs which after 3-4 weeks will become worker wasps, laying eggs at 300 a day you will see how quickly a nest can build and at it’s peak could have 8000 wasps! A nest left untreated will eventually die off along with the queen who would have produced some more queens for the next summer and around a thousand of them at that. These Virgin queens will leave the nest and build a solitary nest for the winter and the process starts again.
