A school in Galgamuwa was closed today morning after it was invaded by wasps, posing a threat to over 400 children present in the premises.

The Sirimavo Bandaranaike Primary School at Galgamuwa was temporarily shut after students who arrived to school today morning found a wasp nest on the roof of one of the school buildings.

The Principal decided to close the school after consultations with the Zonal Director and other senior officials in the area.

The Principal said the wasps had built the nest after the school was closed on Wednesday afternoon. He was hopeful that the school could be re-opened soon.

    Let the experts who tried to solve the issue of wasps in Sigiriya, come and find a solution for this too.

    Why not entrust the job of wiping out the wasps to the experts who used the short cuts in clearing wasp menace in Sigiriya.

    No action coming forth in Sigiriya and now here in the school. I am sure one day our country will be occupied by the wasps.

    MAY BE THOSE WASPS FLEEING FROM SIGIRIYA !

    Yes true, very soon our politicos may take over the place of wasps.

    Tell the cultural minister and the Cultural department. They will chant pirith and bring kattadiya and do a devil dance at public ost. Thereafter burn them.

    I am sure, these are those moving out from sigiriya. Look for other areas where the wasps from segiriya would move.

    Had it was Rajapaksa Vidyalaya the Queen "B" could have been gone missing by now......

    Find them alternate colonies if not the cervices of rocks and roofs of isolated places before they reach townships!

    Thursday, 18 March 2010 10:31 AM

    What guarantee is there that these wasps won't spread to residential areas? The alternative is not to disturb them rather create new colonies in their own habitat if not in the crevices of rocks!
