When you are dealing with far too many wasps, it is important to call a Newport wasp control service that can eliminate the problem, and keep it from coming back.
The Lifespan of Wasps
Most wasps live for approximately 40 days. During this time, they make nests by chewing plant materials and decaying wood and turning them into paper. Throughout the days of her life, the queen will create cells and lay eggs within them inside the nest. Meanwhile, worker wasps will hunt for food, namely insects and nectar from plants, and bring it back to the nest to feed the queen and the larvae.
It is not until late July or August that the wasps will leave the nest. It is at this time that the eggs within the nest have hatched and also left. Wasps become more aggressive during this time as they search for food and if you are dealing with them in your yard, you may find them particularly annoying at this time of year. Before attempting to get rid of them, it is crucial that you understand the biggest myths that surround wasps, and the benefits a Newport wasp control service can bring.
