Learn to identify the Asian Hornet.

The recent sighting in Gloucestershire has brought it home to us that it is possible for this pest to reach our shores and it is real threat to our honeybees. There is very good advice on Bee Base, the NBU website (link below), including a useful ID sheet and guidance on how to look out for them, and what to do if you think you find one. Take time to read up on this pest so you are well informed.
