If you have identified a colony of wasps that are of a concern to you then then responsibility of controlling them will be dependent on where they are located.
Report all wasp nests that are located on Council land and associated properties. We will arrange for the removal of the nests and the eradication of remaining wasps, as efficiently as possible.
If nests are located on your property, or private property, the owner or occupier/tenant is responsible for the removal of wasps. It's advised that the nests are treated by a qualified pest controller who has the proper equipment and measures to deal with the problem safely. It's not recommended that you perform the task yourself.
The Yellow Pages has a number of service providers listed, who will perform wasp removal and pest control. You can access the Yellow Pages online at
