Asian Hornet alert

Would all beekeepers please be advised of a recent Asian Hornet  (Vespa Velutina) outbreak in Devon. It’s not that far away from the south Wales coast, so it is not inconceivable that it could make its way to us in Pembrokeshire.

It is recommended that you check out the link on the NBU website at http://www.nationalbeeunit.com/index.cfm?pageid=208 which also has instructions for making an Asian Hornet Monitoring Trap.

Further advice will follow in due course.
