UK this year. The situation is regularly updated on Beebase
This is NOT just a problem for us and for our bees but for our whole ecosystem. Approximately 40% of the Asian hornet’s diet is made up of honey bees but 60% is comprised of other valuable pollinating insects. It is essential that we get this message out to the public and report all potential sightings.
When the AH reaches Norfolk, WNKLBA’s Asian Hornet Team will be working closely with the NBU, BBKA & our neighbouring Associations to manage the threat.
For more information, there were two very interesting one-hour talks during Asian Hornet Week that are now available on Youtube here and here
