Seasons where wasps are more active
You see more yellow jackets when the weather gets warmer and nice because wasps are essential during spring and summer. Wasps play different roles in these seasons depending on the prevailing weather conditions. Here we will list wasp activities you will see during warmer seasons.
Wasps in springtime
This is the season where queen wasp becomes more active and starts process of building nest. Wasp nests built with a paste made up of chewed wood and wasp saliva. The nest appears paper like when it dried and will contain numerous honeycomb cells. Queen mats with male drones on the ground and produce eggs which eventually hatched in to male and female wasps. More Male wasps mate with queen and queen fill the cells with more eggs which hatch in to wasps. The infertile female wasps start increasing the size of their nest by creating more cells. The larvae hatched in the cells fed with dead insects collected by worker wasps. The process goes throughout spring and summer and the queen wasp after having produced male wasps and queen wasps for the future dies by the end of the season.
Activities during summer
During summer wasps become frenetic and achieve peak labor levels and the net grows bigger with more newly hatched wasps and fertilized cells. So naturally you will see more wasps involved in the act of collecting food for babies till they grown in to full blown wasps. If they population is higher you will see more wasps coming in to vicinity. With increased wasps population demand for food increases and worker wasps travel far distances to collect food. When they fail to find food from natural sources they start poaching on household food items such as sweet fruits, sugary foods and leftover meat. This is where you come in direct contact with wasps and in all likelihood get stung if you swat at them.
Activities during fall
During fall wasps activities slow down considerably and worker wasps start dying in the nest. The queen wasp also slows down egg production. When larvae shrink in numbers so is the honey collection and the adult wasps without honey. And the last generation wasps and larvae left to fend for themselves. For food the worker wasps will travel to longer distance and stay out for longer time. During fall wasps are mostly in the agitated mode and you will find them more aggressive. You have to be careful as not to antagonize them and invite painful stings.
