ALERT - Asian Hornet

There has been a credible sighting of an Asian hornet in The Sands Farnham. The Farnham AHAT will be monitoring a bait station there from today. In the meantime, will everyone please set up bait stations or traps baited with a sweet liquid (jam, apple juice etc) and monitor them regularly. Any sightings please report to alert@farnhambeekeepers.org.uk  If possible with a photo (these insects move very fast).

Also please watch any late nectar sources such as ivy, where the hornets could be feeding on the nectar or on other insects there.

We will keep you in touch with developments. Please be vigilant – a nest was recently destroyed in Christchurch Dorset due to speedy reporting.


Any suspected Asian Hornets should be photographed and the pictures sent to alertnonnative@ceh.ac.uk. The Regional Bee Inspector is Pete Davis – 07900 29216
