The ABC online is reporting that a European wasp expert is warning Canberra residents of a dramatic rise in the number of wasp nests this season.
Philip Spradberry, who is in charge of the ACT Government’s European wasp awareness program, says 450 nests have been reported this year compared to just over 380 for the same period last year.
Dr Spradberry says each year the rate of nests increases by 20 to 30 per cent, which places the public at greater of a potentially deadly attack.
Personally, I’d agree. I had to get a big nest removed not long ago and am seeing alot of them around these days.
