Richard Jones' Log: European wasp invasion
We've been noticing more wasps than usual out the front of our house lately. Rachel spotted the nest today, so I'm up for some wasp-nuking action tonight. Strangely, the instructions for killing a wasp nest that she found online were at the Museum of Victoria. It's actually part of a set of pages about how European wasps were introduced to Australia back in the mid-20th century.
This is kind of timely, given recent discussions here about removing some of our restrictive quarantine barriers.
