It should be noted that NSW Local Council's do not have responsibilities in regards to European Wasps, unless the nest for the wasps is found to be located on Council land.
In cases where a nest is found on private land it is the responsibility of the landowner to destroy the nest. The services of a licensed pest controller should be enlisted in these situations.
