Asian Hornet alert!

Asian Hornet
We have received a request from the National Bee Unit to ask everyone to keep an eye open for the Asian Hornet.
A nest was recently found near Tamworth, and it’s around this time of year that people start seeing the workers. It has been found that they don’t hawk outside hives that often and the best place to see them is on ivy flowers or fallen fruit. If you could please spend 20 minutes/ half an hour looking at a nice sunny patch of ivy it would be very helpful. If you do see anything, then please let us know so we can advise the Bee Inspector.  A photo / sample would also help greatly with positive identification.
