If you’re having an issue with wasps or any other pest control then it’s time to call a Tulsa exterminator, they can help. Wasps are stinging insect that can physically hurt our selves and our love ones. These insects are predominantly seen in the spring and summer months but the fall and winter are not void of their reach. In order to understand wasps and protect you and your family from them. It’s important that you have all the knowledge that you need to handle them intelligently. In this article, let’s take a good hard look at wasps, the lifecycle, and what you and your Tulsa exterminator can do to protect your home from these invaders.


Wasps are a nesting insect. While the female wife does not tend to the way, the larva or the immature version of the wasp after she lays the egg, she does do a lot to make sure that these insects have what they need to grow and prosper. The female wasp will start by building a nest. There are two kinds of wasps. They are solitary wasps, and Social wasps. The solitary wasp, a gray, one cell nests, while the social wasp will create multiple cells in their nest. Example of a social wasp is a paper wasp. These multiple sell Ness has many different eggs to hatch. A solitary wasp would be like the mud dauber. This wasp uses mud to create a single cell nest.

In the case of the paper wasp, this social wasp will find plant material and chew it up mixing it with it so I have a creating kind of paper. This paper we used to create the multiple cell nest. The mud dauber will collect mud to make its nest. Once it’s created it cell, both types of wasp continue the process in about the same way. They will hunt for small spiders in grubs in paralyzed them with their stinger. They will gather these insects and put them inside each of the cells. Then once the cell has enough food in it, they will lay an egg on top of the paralyzed insects and then cap off the top of the Cell. This will end the job of the adult female wasp. Contact your Tulsa exterminator for more information.


From here, the wasp will egg will hatch and a larva will emerge. That larva will begin to feed upon the paralyzed insects inside the cell. As it does, the larva will begin to grow. Once it finishes all the insects inside, it will have grown as large as the larva can be. At this point it will begin to pupate. Unlike the caterpillar, becoming a butterfly, the wasp larva will not have to build any sort of cocoon. The cell walls will suffice as a cocoon. At this point the pupating larva will begin to develop the structures that it needs to be a full grown adult wasp. What is completely developed into an adult reproductive wash, it will push the cap off the top of the cell and emerge from the cell as an adult wasp.

The adult wasp will dry itself off and then we get a flyer close to the nest around for just a few minutes in order to continue the drawing process. Once it’s completed this, it will immediately search for a blossom or flower that I can draw nectar from. While the immature wife needs the proteins of Other insects to build the structures that it has, the mature wife is more in need of energy in the form of sugary nectar. What does fed, it will begin the process of mating, and then creating the nest just as its mother and father had it done before it. For more information contact your Tulsa exterminator.


As these adult wasps, go round and gather the nectar from these flowers, they will cross pollinate flowers. This will help my wife around it to continue his process of reproduction. Wasps are actually very important in the ecosystem when it comes to pollination. Maintaining their numbers as important and not wiping out every bit of them. While you may see some wasp fly through your yard from time to time, this is now no threat to you. It’s the nest that wasps are so protective off. If you see a wasp nest attached underneath the eve or on the side of your house, this is where you should be concerned. Contact your Tulsa exterminator for help.  

In the winter months, the female wasp will meet one last time with the males just before they die off from the cold. Then she will find a cracker crevice to hide and go dormant in. This is usually a hole in the ground or in a tree where she can stay warm enough to last through the winter. Sometimes they will pick a spot in your home, such as under a loose shingle or behind a piece of siding. In these cases, sometimes they will sense the heat that comes from the inside of your house and assume that it’s summertime. They will work their way towards the heat and sometimes find a way into your home. Once they emerge from their winter slumber, they must feed on nectar immediately, or they will die. So often these ways to make the way inside your home will die pretty quickly.
