Wanted : Wasp nests

Bryce from Enner Glynn

As part of a Landcare program to develop biological controls for the control of common and German Wasps (NOT Paper Wasps) I need a few active Wasp nests in the Nelson / Tasman area. The program will add a parasitic Wasp to each nest and allow the nest to remain untouched until the end of this summer. This parasitic Wasp is already in several areas in NZ and we are wanting to give it a boost. Nests must be outside an area to be controlled with VESPEX or other toxins and will need to remain completely functional so the added Parasite gets established. Easy access would be handy for monitoring progress.

How about if we post the best jokes we have heard on a joke post. It would give everyone a bit of a giggle in these strange and stressful times we are going thru. There are a lot of people that could do with cheering up.

At-Home Fire Safety Checklist

Fire and Emergency from Fire and Emergency New Zealand

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...

We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.

New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.

Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.
