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  in situations where nests are not able to be located and directly treated.

Sundew Vespex Remote Baiting European Wasps Australia

VESPEX European wasp baiting programs should only be conducted by Sundew VESPEX Accredited Specialists.  Incorrect installation and use of the VESPEX system could result in unpredictable results.

How Quickly Does VESPEX Work?

Depending on the time of year, the size of the nest, the number of nests and the number of VESPEX
bait placements, a population of wasps can be reduced to as little as 98% in approximately 14 days.

No Requirement to Find the Nest

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 the queen
and fellow workers, quickly destroying the whole colony.
