Black wasps from China are considered the main culprit of destroying the bee ecosystem.
The damage caused by the beekeeper farms alone is 170 billion, reported by JTV reporter Jung Won-ik.
A beekeeper farm in Iksan, a black wasp that is larger than a knuckle constantly attacks bees with prey for larvae.
Usually, one black wasp kills tens of thousands of bees per day.
[Jin-Sik Park/Beekeeper Farmer: Longevity wasps did so much damage before, but these days, black wasps are doing a lot of damage.
Until late, until the end of November.] The
black wasp was designated as an ecosystem disturbance creature last year.
However, the share of domestic wasps has soared from 49% two years ago to 72% this year.
The eradication of black wasps is urgently needed, with the annual damage to beekeepers estimated at 170 billion won.
However, the budget for combat equipment that attracts and kills wasps is supported by up to 3 million won to small farms with beehives within 300 counties.
As a result, in Jeonbuk, out of 2,000 beekeepers, 300 full-time farmers are not even eligible to apply for a budget.
Indeed, small-scale farmers are reluctant to apply for business because of their own burden.
Accordingly, the budget for combat equipment allocated to Jeonbuk is only 500 million won, and the actual execution rate is only 52 million won, which is about 10%.
