It was only a matter of time before the Asian Hornet arrived in the UK. Please be vigilant to prevent them taking hold. Read the article at GloucestershireLive.co.uk and report any possible sitings – we need to find the nest and get it destroyed asap. But, do not under any circumstances disturb or provoke an active hornets' nest. While the workers will die out during the cold weather, the queen will over-winter and start again next year.
If you think you have seen an Asian Hornet take a picture and email it with details of where you saw it and your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org - for more information visit the Non-native Species Secretariat website.
