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...

Water v Government Takeover

Noel from South Taranaki District

Being one of a few people who attended the open consultation process of the local council's 10 year plan I was very concerned about the proposed water take over by Government probably by the end of this year giving very little time for all councils to discuss this matter with the public. Full details have not yet been presented to Councils. This will cover water to your property. Grey wastewater and also storm water. So think of what is happened with Health Boards and the many problems there. This could be the future of your water. You will all be paying rates directly to a yet faceless organisation. You will be forced to accept fluoride whether it is good or not !!? If Government forced companies to greatly reduce sugar contents in drinks and food then there will not be so many teeth problems. I am doing my bit now do yours . Spread the word NO to Government controlling our water.
