Home BIODIVERSITY Fauna of King Island
European Wasps have been baited on King Island in the past with success. Nests finish in autumn with new queens going off to hibernate over winter. They will then form new nests in Spring.
The community is asked to watch out for and report any wasp activity including hibernating queens in wood piles, freight, and warm spots.
Further Information on European Wasps (includes photos identifying the friendly native flower wasp and the European Wasp).
Several programs over the past 8 years have involved education about responsible cat ownership, desexing assistance, feral cat trapping and monitoring.
