The Common Wasp And Their Nests
The Queen wasp emerges from hibernation in spring. The Queen will then look for a location to start a new wasp colony. The Queen would usually locate the wasp nest in a place that is sheltered. Some of the most common locations include:
* The hollows of trees
* The loft or attic of a house
* Underneath decks and stairs
* Amongst piled wood
* In-wall cavities of the building
Once the location has been chosen by the Queen, she will use chewed up wood pulp to form the basis of the nest. She begins by laying eggs which will develop into workers. Once the workers have matured they will take over the duties of the Queen. This includes caring for a nest, gathering food and protecting it from intruders. The Queen will be responsible only for laying more eggs. At the end of autumn once enough eggs have been developed into queens and males they will leave the nest. The new queens will look for places a hibernate during the coming colder months and the males and the existing colony will die out.
