Online Wasps reporting application comes in handy for Capetonians

The City of Cape Town’s launched a new online wasp reporting application in November last to allow members of the public an easily accessible way to report and get wasp nests removed.

Since its official launch, more than 2 000 people have accessed the app and more then 1 300 nests around the City have been removed.

CapeTalk’s Pippa Hudson interviewed Ulrike Irlich, Project Manager of the Invasive Species Monitoring and Evaluation at Environmental Resource Management Department.

We were inundated with many phone calls and emails and we couldn’t keep up
