Our pest technicians are often asked “what does the inside of a wasp nest looks like?”
So I thought I’d take a few pictures and write a quick blog post so you can all see for yourself.
Firstly the wasp nest it’s self will usually look like a grey paper ball, anywhere from the size of a golf ball to the size of a beach ball! as seen below.
The hole at the bottom of the wasp nest is the wasps entry point into the nest it’s self, it is inside this protecting layer of wasp paper that the egg cells are.
These are the layers of egg cells within the wasps nest, which have been dismantled, the white caps are protecting the wasp larvae within. you can clearly see in the middle layer there are emerging wasp larvae. The picture below is a close up of the wasp larvae.
These wasp larvae will be fed and looked after by other young wasps, which will remain in the nest of house work duties.
This final picture of the inside of a wasp nest is a wasps nest I removed in July. If you have a wasp nest you need help with please visit >> Wasp Nest Removal Berkshire
