The Asian hornet arrived in France in 2004 and is now common across large areas of Europe posing a severe hazard for honey bees and other pollinating insects. Several sightings of this predatory insect have been made in recent years in the south of England and though it is believed the species will not be able to survive in the north of the UK due to colder winters, it is proving to be highly adaptable.
It is imperative that every effort is made to prevent the intrusion of the Asian Hornet into this country. For detailed information please go to: https://www.sbka.org.uk/asian-hornet-2019/
