Here is a link to a Facebook post and video concerning a wasp plague in Gippsland that one of our members suggested we share. In the video Mr Bunyip describes his baiting strategy. I added a comment on the insecticide choice (Note that Advantage/Advocate contains a imidacloprid (neonicotinoid) and Frontline contains fipronil and these are produced as cat and dog tick medications. I'm no pesticide expert but you might want to consider a permethrin (synthetic pyrethroid) insecticide. As far as I can gather they all have pretty equally low human toxicity. I think permethrin may have a somewhat shorter persistence in the environment. You can get it at the big green building store sold as ant and wasp dust/powder. They should all be kept out of the water table as they are toxic to fish.)
thanks. I missed that post.
