Asian Hornet Awareness
It is the time of year where we need to start keeping an eye out for Asian Hornet queens. They will be emerging from hibernation when temepratures are consitently reaching 13°C. I know this nice weather we have currently may only be short lived but as we move further into the spring the likelihood is increasing.
Get your cameras and binoculars ready (I now often travel with a pair of binoculars just in case). The BBKA and HBA strongly recommend the use of monitoring stations rather than killing traps. Placing these somewhere that you observe daily, such as outside the kitchen window, is key so you can avoid killing our native insects. Check the BBKA website for instructions on how to build one of these traps here. You can also download the Asian Hornet Watch App
