When Do Wasps Nest?
Wasps will typically nest in the early spring, moving into the summer. First, a queen will seek a suitable location to nest before making her nest. Next, a wasp nest will start small, with a structure usually the size of a golf ball. Then, over the following weeks, the queen will lay eggs that pupate into infertile male worker drones. At this point, a wasp nest will rapidly grow into the size of a football and even more significant in some cases.
You must act early if you’ve noticed a wasp nest in or around your home. The longer you leave it, the larger the nest will become and by the end of the summer, the nest could be as large as a washing machine containing over 10,000 wasps.

Signs Of A Wasp Nest
There are some key indicators that you have a nest present in your home include:
- Spotting a wasp nest is the number one indicator that you have a problem.
- You’re seeing a significant number of wasps in or around your property.
- Wasps gravitate towards specific areas or rooms in your home.
If you find a wasp nest, please do not approach without a bee-keeping suit. Wasps are very aggressive during summer and will attack in numbers if you disturb the nest.
How To Get Rid Of A Wasp Nest
