Questions answered about wasps - Page:15
Wasps will hibernate in virtually any location protected from the elements, including lofts, sheds/outbuildings, old log piles and underground burrows all of which are favourite places for hibernating wasps.
Only newly hatched queen wasps hibernate, the original queen who started the nest dies in the autumn. A queen will survive for one year.
Why would you want to?
If you are finding hornets indoors in the spring, do not be concerned. It is probably a queen who has got inside by mistake.
If it is summer and you getting hornets indoors, we suggest that you have a nest close by and they are coming in through open windows at night time.
Hornets are nocturnal and will be attracted to lights inside, just like moths.
Wasps make their nests from wood; usually, they strip wood from fence panels and sheds.
We see all sorts of colours in wasps nests; this is due to people treating fence panels with different colour treatments.
