European Wasps, You Can Help

By Pesty 25 June 2008 24

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).

Just a reminder, that Dr.Spradbery is still in need of live European wasp nests for experimental purposes vital to the long term control of the pests. contact is via TAMS or direct 61621914. removal of useful nests is always free, destruction may be free until October if the nest is not useable.

not to my knowledge, that’s not to say if it were causing a public nuisance there is not some law or other that could apply? One for the lawyers on RA to answer. Removal can cost up to $200, and there are cowboys out there too! If you are paying more than half that, its to much. Ring the EW & insect identification hotline for advise 61621914

Re Skids crazy, bunny boiling neighbour: can someone be forced by the authorities to have a wasp nest removed from their property?
