The European wasp was detected in Western australia for the first time in January and February 1977 in the metropolitan suburbs of Mosman Park, Cottesloe and Attadale.
So far it has only been found within an area of 8 km radius from Fremantle but the outer boundries of the infestation are still uncertain.
It is Department of agriculture policy to eradicate the European wasp, if possible, and to destroy all nests detected.
