Latest information regarding Asian hornet early season surveillance

From the analysis conducted at Fera Science Ltd a number of areas have been identified where there is a low risk that Asian hornet queens have overwintered. In response the NBU are making plans to carry out spring trapping, including how to work collaboratively with stakeholders to monitor traps at locations across Kent, East Sussex, Devon and North Yorkshire. BeeBase will be updated if there are any credible sightings or Asian hornets captured.
