For some reason this is not allowing me to ID this, but this little one is a European wasp or a Vespula germanica.

I had to establish European Wasp as a taxonomic record within Albury-Wodonga Naturemapr. There are surprisingly few electronic records of European Wasp from the region. Is there a process for reporting nests on public land for control?
