Invasive species enemy #1: The Asian Hornet
2023 has seen a dramatic increase in the number of sightings and this year. 71 Asian hornet nests have been found in 55 locations (National Bee Unit).
Asian Hornets represent an existential threat to Britain’s bee population as they have no innate defence against them.
In season, it’s a 24/7 job and the NBU needs our help in confirming sightings. Download the Bystander App which captures picture, location, date, time, and vector (direction), providing all the information needed to locate and destroy a nest.
