The threat posed by the invasive Asian Hornet should not be underestimated. It poses a very real risk to honey bees and many other inspect pollinators.
It is vital that beekeepers and members of the general public work together to spot, identify and report Asian Hornets – so that the authorities can act quickly to destroy nests of this invasive species.
The latest information on sightings and nest destructions are available through the BBKA’s Incursion Map.
Lots of information on the Asian Hornet, and what we can do about them are available on the BBKA’s Asian Hornet pages.
Even more information regarding the Asian Hornet are available from BeeBase. You can also download the Asian Hornet Identification Guide (v5) here.
