European wasp precautions
Last Updated on Wednesday, 24 March 2010 16:04
We saw occasional European wasps around the course when hanging controls a few weeks ago. There was an incident with someone disturbing a nest last weekend somewhere in the park, so we're warning anyone with an allergy to wasp stings to be prepared.
Nests are often in the ground, and if disturbed the wasps may attack aggressively. If you see a few wasps at the same time, you may be near a nest, so be on the alert until clear of the area.
See this article for more information on identifying wasps and first aid.
