Where do wasps go in the winter month?
During winter wasps hide in undisturbed, warm areas to survive the cold months. Sometimes hives are built underground or in cavities where it is warmer, but some wasp will die over winter and only emerge when the weather warms up.
When do wasp return in the winter month?
If it is too cold for wasps to stay where they are then they will gradually head towards the warmth. This means that during springtime when temperatures are warmer, the wasp population will gradually return to an area.
