Presencia de Avispón Asesino causa alarma en Washington, D.C.

El Departamento de Agricultura de Washington, dio a conocer este lunes el hallazgo de un ejemplar del insecto conocido como avispón asesino, en una trampa instalada en Birch Bay en el condado de Whatcom.

Personal del organismo revisaron la trampa el 14 de julio y enviaron el contenido para su procesamiento en el laboratorio de entomología de WSDA.

El ejemplar de avispón se identificó durante su procesamiento el día 29 de julio. Se cuentan con datos respecto al primer avispón que se detectó en una trampa, en lugar de encontrarse en el medio ambiente como lo fueron los cinco avistamientos confirmados anteriores del estado.

Esto es alentador porque significa que sabemos que las trampas funcionan, dijo Sven Spichiger, entomólogo gerente del departamento. Pero también significa que tenemos trabajo que hacer, agregó.

Ya en días anteriores, se habían reportado 5 avistamientos de ejemplares en diversas granjas de la zona, lo que indica que el insecto se está reproduciendo en estado natural.

Ahora el Departamento de Agricultura deberá establecer estrategias para ubicar los nidos con cámaras infrarrojas y colocar trampas adicionales para atrapar especímenes de avispones gigantes asiáticos vivos.

El personal desplegará trampas especiales destinadas a atrapar avispones pero los mantendrá vivos. Si atrapan avispones vivos, el departamento intentará etiquetarlos y rastrearlos hasta su colonia. Una vez ubicada, la agencia erradicará la colonia.

La WSDA espera encontrar y destruir el nido a mediados de septiembre antes de que la colonia comience a crear nuevas reinas y drones reproductores. Hasta ese momento, la colonia solo contendrá los avispones gigantes asiáticos reina y obrera. Destruir el nido antes de que surjan nuevas reinas y aparearse evitará la propagación de esta plaga invasiva.

En total se han instalado más de 1,300 trampas en todo el estado con apoyo de productores del campo. Debido a que el número de trabajadores de avispones gigantes asiáticos aumenta a medida que se desarrolla una colonia, es más probable que los residentes vean un avispón gigante asiático en agosto y septiembre.

El Departamento de Agricultura trabaja activamente para restar la especie depredadora y evitar la merma en poblaciones avícolas.
