It's a new season for wasp. Any problems with wasps give us at Wessex pest a call.

Wasp Nests

When it comes to wasps it's all about the queen. She establishes colonies and lays the eggs. At the end of summer a nest can contain up to 5,000 wasps on average. If it has been a particularly hot summer this number can increase to around 10,000.

Usually the young queens come out of hibernation when the weather starts getting warmer. If the weather continues to stay fine they build a nest and lay their eggs. The first larvae they lay become sterile female workers who take over the hunting and feeding duties for the growing colony. The queen then restricts her activities to egg production.

Towards the end of the summer, she is at her peak and begins producing the next generation of queen wasps and males or drones. When these mature they leave the nest to mate with wasps from other colonies. As the weather cools, the male wasps die and the mated queens go into hibernation to get ready for building a new nest the following spring.

We are starting to be called out for cluster fly activity in lofts of homes and roof voids of commercial & Domestic properties. Wessex Pest Control carry out insecticidal misting treatment or supply electric fly killers to resolve this issue.

The cluster flies are the genusPollenia in the Blowflyfamily Calliphoridae. Unlike more familiar blowflies such as the bluebottle genus Phormia, they do not present a health hazard because they do not lay eggs in human food. They are strictly parasitic on earthworms; the females lay their eggs near earthworm burrows, and the larvae then infest the worms. However, the flies are a nuisance because when the adults emerge in the late summer or autumn they enter houses to hibernate, often in large numbers; they are difficult to eradicate because they favour inaccessible spaces such as roof and wall cavities. They are often seen on windows of little-used rooms. They are also sometimes known as attic flies.

The typical cluster fly Pollenia rudis is about 7 mm long and can be recognised by distinct lines or stripes behind the head, short golden-coloured hairs on the thorax, and irregular light and dark gray areas on the abdomen. Cluster flies are typically slow moving.
