Wasp Trap Bags
Jul 29 in Pests
Wasps can be a nuisance in the garden, particularly in late Summer. they will travel long distances for food and water sources so dealing with a nest nearby may not cure the problem. PESTUK sell and install Wasp trap bags.
Wasp trap bags
Late July to November some years will the months where a wasp trap is of most use. There are a few reasons for this.
- When the workers have no function any more. There are no longer any grubs in the nest to feed as the Queen has stopped laying. Her last brood (normally in August but can vary due to the weather etc) would have been new Queens & Drones. These new Queens will hibernate after mating with Drones from other nests while the rest of the colony die off as Winter progresses. Once these Queen & Drone grubs have been raised and fed by the workers and the original Queen may have already died then the workers have no work to do.
- Earlier in the Summer, more time may have been spent constructing and maintaining their nest, keeping the nest cool or tending to the grubs. The lack of grub production coincides with the ripening of fruit. So workers have nothing to do but feed themselves and this diet of ripening fruit makes them drunk and aggressive. This means that people are more likely to be bothered when outside by wasps looking for food.
Wasp trap bags can relieve these problems. At PESTUK a number of our customers- including domestic, golf courses, hotels, rubbish tips, polo centers, pubs and restaurants have wasp traps installed and serviced monthly at this time of the year. These types of traps also have the added bonus of also attracting and catching flies.
