When Is Wasp Season In The UK?

In the United Kingdom, wasp season typically begins in the summer months and lasts until early autumn. The precise timing can vary depending on factors such as weather conditions and regional variations. Wasps become more active during the warmer months when their nests are established, and they are searching for food sources.

Generally, wasp activity starts to increase around May or June as the weather becomes warmer- this is when the queens emerge from hibernation and begin to build their nests.

Throughout the summer months, wasp colonies grow in size, and their presence becomes more noticeable.

The peak of wasp season in the UK typically occurs in late summer, around August and September.

During this time, wasps are more aggressive as they search for food to sustain their colonies, and they are attracted to sugary foods and beverages, which often leads to encounters with humans during outdoor activities and picnics.

It’s important to note that the timing and intensity of wasp season can vary from year to year and in different regions of the UK – environmental factors, such as temperature and availability of food sources, can influence the activity levels of wasps.

If you’re concerned about wasp activity or have a wasp nest on your property, it’s recommended to contact a professional pest control service for safe removal or advice on managing the situation.

Attempting to handle a wasp nest without proper knowledge and equipment can be dangerous.
