Including irrigation in niche modelling of the invasive wasp Vespula germanica (Fabricius) improves model fit to predict potential for further spread
The European wasp, Vespula germanica (Fabricius) (Hymenoptera: Vespidae), is of Palaearctic origin, being native to Europe, northern Africa and Asia, and introduced into North America, Chile,Expand
Status of the invasive wasp species, Vespula germanica and Polistes dominula in South Africa, and the feasibility of various management strategies
TLDR
Results suggest that all of the selected EPN and EPF species have the potential to be effective inundative biological control agents used within an integrated management programme for the control of P. dominula and V. germanica in South Africa. Expand
Spatio–Environmental Analysis of Vespula germanica Nest Records Explains Slow Invasion in South Africa
Simple Summary Social wasp invasions can spread quickly and have serious impacts if they reach new regions with favourable climatic conditions. However, in areas less suitable to them, invasionExpand
Population genetics of the invasive wasp Vespula germanica in South Africa
TLDR
It is concluded that German wasps in South Africa maintain a homogenous population with movement of individuals between localities with weak-to-no genetic sub-structuring, likely due to high dispersal rates. Expand
Fresh meat baits are currently the only available effective option to detect low- density Vespula germanica populations in South Africa
The eusocial wasp Vespula germanica is a problematic invasive species in the Southern Hemisphere regions. Especially in New Zealand, Tasmania and Argentina, population densities can be very high andExpand
Fresh meat baits are currently the only available effective option to detect low‐density Vespula germanica (Hymenoptera: Vespidae) populations in South Africa
The eusocial wasp Vespula germanica is a problematic invasive species in the Southern Hemisphere regions. Especially in New Zealand, Tasmania and Argentina, population densities can be very high andExpand
The Invasive Vespidae in South Africa: Potential Management Strategies and Current Status
TLDR
Various control methods, including mechanical, chemical and biological control have been developed and implemented internationally in an effort to curb population expansion of social wasps. Expand
The origins of global invasions of the German wasp (Vespula germanica) and its infection with four honey bee viruses
TLDR
German wasps showed reduced genetic diversity in the invaded range compared to that of their native range, which may make these wasps a potentially viable target for control via gene drives. Expand
