REMOTE BAITING OF EUROPEAN WASP NESTS

 

Controlling populations of European wasps when it is not possible to locate nests for application of direct insecticide treatment has been a challenge for many years in Australia.  VESPEX European Wasp Lure is approved for use in insecticide baiting when mixed with Sundew EnsnarePRO 50SC Insecticide in situations where nests are not able to be located and directly treated.

 

EnsnarePRO contains the active ingredient indoxacarb.  Indoxacarb is from a class of insecticides developed with non-repellent properties (i.e. insects cannot detect its presence).  This clever active ingredient is designed to not interfere with insects’ behaviours and has a delayed mode of action. 

A treatment is made by mixing EnsnarePRO with VESPEX European Wasp Lure to form a base baiting toxicant liquid. The prepared bait is then strategically deployed using VESPEX Tunnel Stations following a grid density pattern. There is no requirement to find the nests as the wasps collect the bait from the feeder trays in the wasp tunnel stations and carry it back to the nest.  The wasps then share the bait with larvae, queen and fellow workers, quickly destroying the nest.
