Asian Hornet update!

Just a note to ‘bee vigilant’, Asian Hornets have been found in Essex and Jersey reports the highest number so far. These hornets hover outside beehives picking off individuals, biting off the heads and devouring the rest.

Hornets will be active for a few weeks yet, so if you find a nest report it asap! If the nest produces queen’s we can all look out.

Asian hornets are no more dangerous to humans than wasps. Their 4th abdominal segment is brown distinguishing them from the all yellow European hornet.
