Asian Hornets in the UK
As we did last year, we are offering a special deal on Hornet Traps to help beekeepers battle against the invasive Asian Hornet which is being reported in more locations around the UK in recent days and weeks.
"Vespa velutina, also known as the Asian hornet is an invasive non-native species from Asia. It arrived in France in 2004 where it spread rapidly. As a highly effective predator of insects, including honey bees and other beneficial species, it can cause significant losses to bee colonies, and potentially other native species."
It is very important that sightings are reported immediately.
