Buzzing in the ears of Naklua residents turned out not to be the high-voltage power poles in their neighborhood but, instead, wasps nested on them.
Provincial Electricity Authority workers were up on poles July 8 in the Roi Lang neighborhood trying to clear out encampments of paper wasps. The evictions did not go well, though, leaving many locals ducking for cover as angry insects took to the air.
Diligent work by PEA workers, however, cleared most of the hornet nests. Anyone who discovers more can call the power company to have them cleared.
