Wasp Nest Excavation, New Zealand

Researcher Bob Brown digs an invasive German wasp (Vespula germanica) nest for his research. He has many years of experience and use specialized equipment to do this and still get the odd sting, so please don’t try to dig an active nest yourself! As you can see from the copious amount of venom on the camera lens, these wasps meant business.
