Asian Hornets

       Now is the time to keep your eyes open for the Asian Hornets “hawking” in front of the hives and taking out returning bees.

       As we progress into the Autumn period and the trees start to drop their leaves this is the best time to spot the Asian Hornets nests in the branches of the trees normally quite high up and easily missed as they are similar to the bunches of mistletoe but obviously solid and you can not see through it like you can mistletoe.

       If you have any concerns then contact your local branch member for confirmation or report it to the Asian hornet team.
