Asian Hornet

The Asian Hornet is a major new threat to honey bee colonies in the UK. Asian Hornets are a ferocious predator of honey bees and can destroy a colony in a very short time.

We will be adding more information to this page in the very near future regarding the actions you need to take if you see an Asian Hornet on Main land UK.

We will shortly post up links to a specialist App for notifying APHA of Asian Hornet sightings.
