SARIKEI: Staff of Sarawak En­ergy Bhd and Fire and Res­cue Ser­vices Depart­ment ( Bomba) teamed up in a spe­cial op­er­a­tion to de­stroy a hor­nets’ nest lodged on a tree branch at Green Road here Wed­nes­day night.

Bomba dis­patched a team of fire­men in­clud­ing two dressed in pro­tec­tive gear to lead the op­er­a­tion, while SEB pro­vided an aerial lift truck to en­able them to reach the hor­nets’ nest about 20 feet above the ground.

To en­sure no dam­age done to nearby elec­tric­ity ca­bles, they used in­sect sprayer in­stead of flames to de­stroy the hor­nets colony, one of the fire­men said. The op­er­a­tion to en­sure the safety of nearby res­i­dents started at 7pm and was com­pleted in less than 10 min­utes.
