WASP SEASON

The wasp season has started in spring and it will reach its high point in the summer. That will be just in time for you BBQs and summer parties!

There are five distinguishable stages in Vespula vulgaris colony cycle. Each lasts for similar periods; approximately 30–35 days. The colony starts in April as the queen begins the foundation of the nest and degenerates around October when the temperature drops and the queen dies. The size of the colony ranges from 3000 larvae up to maximum of 8000 larvae, with the queen producing around 200–300 eggs per day for 24 days:

 

Stage 1 – Solitary Stage

Stage 2 – Rapid Increase

Stage 3 – Slow Increase

Stage 4 – Climax of Colony

Stage 5 – Decline
