Female Wasps
Female wasps make up the majority of the wasps in a nest. The female wasps are mostly infertile workers who build and protect the nest while gathering food and looking after the young produced from the queen wasp. It is also only female wasps that sting as the barb used for stinging is also their means of laying eggs. Only towards the end of the season will the queen begin to lay fertile female wasps for the next generation. These female wasps will leave the nest in search of males to mate with. Once the female wasps have mated with a few males, storing the sperm each time, they will then hibernated over the winter. The surviving females emerge the following year in the spring as the next generation of queens. They search for a suitable place and begin building their own nest. The queen will make a very small nest and lay only a few eggs. These will hatch and become female worker wasps to help with the construction of the nest continuing the cycle.
