Two species of introduced Colony Wasps (Vespula spp) are now widespread in New Zealand, presenting a risk to human health, our ecology, agriculture and beekeepers.

Control of these wasps is possible with the wasp specific insecticide “Vespex”.

The Rotary Club of Plimmerton is looking at the feasibility of a community based control programme in the Greater Wellington Region.
