Wasp report November 2011 to February 2012

The wasp colonies will die out in late October, next year’s Queens have left the nest to look for somewhere warm and safe to settle in for hibernation over Winter.

The Queens wrap themselves in a hibernation cocoon for protection, they will find a nook or cranny out of the way, and where they will be protected from the cold weather.

Depending on the severity of the Winter and early Spring they will emerge from hibernation next year between March and April and look for somewhere to build next year’s nest and start their new colony.
