    All this hatred! Golly I bet old Hans and his SAFE buddies will be mounting a campaign soon called SOWFE (save our wasps from extermination)

    Seriously though, on tho odd occasions Ive found nests of german wasps, a couple of puffs of flystrike powder in the hole has done the trick. I have mixed advantage with sardines and that seemed to work too Its imidacloparid and some crop sprays use it so that also seems to be an option.

    I have been following this story for a while
    Initially when the bees started dying the cause was unknown although a poison was suspected.
    Samples were sent to MPI and it turns out Fipronil (the active ingredient in vespex and also frontline for flees) was the cause.
    I think this highlights the need for understanding the wasps protein cycle\link and not using a sweet\sugar lure.

    For those of you that are interested check this out...

    There is also some good info in this article, concerning the same incident.
    Particularly from the developer of the vespex bait.

    Them wasps gobble through sandflies like there's no tomorrow. Just saying, in case you live near a stream.

    I know its off track but talk about cherry pick facts.

    "A study on the effects of 1080 dust on bees found no 1080 was detected in samples of bees, pollen and nectar taken from six hives within the boundary of an aerial baiting operation".

    "A" study,so only one with no citation ....epic Journalism not

    waterblaster at very close range ,particularly on pesky little arseholes that landed on my driveway fence as i was constructing some homebrew. wifey wondered what the smears on the new fence palings were -i told her it was organic art -well I assume some of it was their organs but my eye sights not that shit hot.
    daughter unfortunately was badly stung a coupla times as a kiddie and well me Ijust hate the huas.
    pity they weren't a little bigger -"hmmm 3"no3steel 12g should upset the flight dynamics"
    did deal with a bees nest in me front porch with a washgun&compressor featuring 700ml used carpainting thinners ,700ml 91 petrol delivered at 100PS Ifollowed by a bloody great slug of carbaryl after 3of the huas stung me and me old dog JJ RIP.
    twas life jim -but alas not as they knew it.strangely lots of brown bits in the garden -compost now!

    What's going on there @BeeMan are they dead bees or wasps lying around on the sand ?

    Looks like there is no problems with the wasps taking the bait tho !! Good stuff, get stuck into them.

    Here's a question you might know the answer to "how far does a bee fly from its hive" ??

    I was working in a wetland today poisoning crack willows with XTree Basel and holy shit they were all buzzing with bees after the sticky stuff all over the leaves.

    Couldn't see any hives around but thought there was far to many for them to be wild.

    Most bee activity is approx a kilometre n under. But later in the season when flowering sources start to dwindle they could venture out to a couple kms. The dead bees on the sand are close proximity to a bee site, honey has been harvested, collateral damage. Hope that helps kukuwai.
