You haven’t seen anything yet if you believed yellow jackets, wasps, and other bugs that sting were bothersome during the summer. In fact, as the end of the summer draws near, these stinging insects will only get more bothersome and perhaps even more aggressive when they get a little too close.

Mother Nature’s pantry is loaded with a variety of ripe fruits, nectar-rich flowers, and other sweet treats at this time of year. It’s also the time of year for outdoor dining, and as most Melbourne residents can attest, it’s uncommon to have a picnic without at least one of the wasps attempting to join the fun!

In the summer months, Melbourne is home to a wide variety of insects. Bees and wasps are among the most prevalent among them. By the time late summer arrives, stinging insect nests have usually grown to their maximum size, and the population explosion has led to a greater competition among stinging insects for food, space, and other resources. It is more likely that you will come into contact with them now because there are more stinging insects on your land.

Why Do Wasps Come Out in Summer?


During the summer, flies and other insects are particularly prevalent. Due to the warmer weather, they are most active throughout the summer. The availability of nectar found in blooming flowers, particularly during the day, is one of the main factors contributing to their high level of activity during the summer. Discover why they are so active in the summer in today’s blog.

It helps to understand how the typical wasp nest functions to comprehend why wasps in the late summer are especially annoying.

The queen wasps awake from their winter hibernation in the spring, when they start build nests and lay their first eggs. Since the first generation of offspring are unable to lay eggs, they spend their time building the nest and caring for the following generations of young.

A final brood of males and young queens will be laid by the queen at the conclusion of the summer. The queen ceases to generate eggs after this last generation has departed the nest. As a result, there are no longer any larvae making the sugar-rich spit that the workers depend on.

How Can Wasps Be Eliminated in the Summer?

Wasps are clearly an issue and yet they are essential to the environment and some of them even accidentally pollinate plants. However, it makes sense to want to keep them at a distance when you’re enjoying the outdoors, particularly if you have young children or other vulnerable family members.

It’s important to take action right away and to avoid attempting to handle a huge wasp nest on your property yourself. When provoked, wasps are famously aggressive, and you risk getting painful stings.

You can have a more wasp-free summer by comprehending wasp behaviour and adopting precautions like avoiding pleasant odors. Leave wasp nests alone and seek expert help from a pest control company.
