Quercus - National Association for Nature Conservation - of Castelo Branco has warned about the increased presence of the Asian wasp in the district and drew attention to the need for correct identification and alerts to the authorities.

"Quercus Castelo Branco has received many contacts and requests for help from cities in the past two months to identify possible situations with the presence of Asian wasps in the district", said the organisation, in a statement sent to Lusa News Agency.

The Asian wasp is a non-indigenous species and a predator of the European bee.

The Asian wasp also can create problems for public safety. If it senses the threat it reacts quite aggressively, including pursuits up to a few hundred metres.


People can now get dual use from proper protective gear. Avoid COVID and catch the Wasp nest in to a bag.
