Eggs: between 10 - 20 are laid in cells inside the nest. Up
to a 1000 throughout the summer can be laid by the queen.
Wasp larvae: legless grubs are fed in the cells by workers on
insects and spiders while the queen continues to lay eggs. These
develop in around four weeks.
pupae: these develop in about two weeks with in the cell. Once
hatched the sterile female workers continue to help build the
nest and feed the larvae.
wasps: towards the end of the summer the queen lays more eggs
