Between periods of hibernation, however, Cullings may be much more severe. During full-scale cullings, [[Hive ship]]s and [[Wraith cruiser|cruisers]] are utilized - arriving in orbit and deploying waves of darts to the planet below. These cullings can devastate entire civilizations in terms of the number of people taken and the sheer destruction caused by weapons fire from the atmosphere. {{Cite|atl|Letters from Pegasus|The Hive}} Ground forces are usually also deployed in order to locate any who may be hiding. {{cite|SGA|Outsiders}} In some instances, the Wraith dial in to the planet's [[Stargate]] in order to prevent escape. When the culling is over, these forces then return to the Hive Ships, where the captured humans are placed in cocoons to preserve them for later feedings. However, despite the severity of the cullings, the Wraith always leave behind survivors that will be able to repopulate the planet, and therefore be able to replenish the Wraith's food supply.

Once the Wraith have culled a sufficient number of worlds as to adequately replenish their society, they enter a period of hibernation that can last up to 50 years. During this time, [[Hive ship]]s land on planets, individual Wraith enter [[hibernation pod]]s, and only a handful of 'caretakers' are left behind to maintain the society. {{cite|SGA|Rising}}
