Monster wasp nest

The Team from Wasp Wipeout

Well, after a (relatively) quiet couple of summers, the vespula wasps have come back big time in some locations! Auckland and the Waikato are reporting big numbers and you may have seen this story about the monster nest found just outside of Nelson. We're continuing our efforts to control the wasps through the Wasp Wipeout project, but did you know you can help as well? For information on how to help or DIY click here: bit.ly... You can also donate to the project here: givealittle.co.nz...

What do you think?
