A special operation has been launched for the removal of wasp nests found in the vicinity of tea estates in Hatton – Dikoya, Norwood and Bagawantalaawa.

Nuwara Eliya District Secretary D. P. G. Kumaarasiri told our news team that the Wildlife Department and the District Secretariat had jointly launched this operation.

Throughout the past several weeks about four deaths caused by wasp attack had been reported.

The District Secretary points out that in addition a large number of persons have been hospitalized due to the wasp attack.

Wasps have used trees in the vicinity of tea estates to build their nests, as a result of felling of large trees in the area.

District Secretary D. P. G. Kumarasiri told our news team that in addition while the eagle population in the Nuwara Eliya District has also increased, the eagles engage in destroying wasp combs.
