Further to a very informative and amusing post on RA regarding European wasps, if anyone comes across a nest, particularly in the ground between now and the spring, could they please report it to the European wasp hotline as it now (in winter)has significant scientific interest. The gentleman who runs the operation, Dr Philip Spradbery is working on a means to control their spread. Removal of the nest would be free (and interesting to watch). These bugs are getting steadily out of control in the ACT, any help to eradicate them is in the public interest. Call Canberra Connect for contact information (13 22 81).
