The new four-page document covers:

  • The importance of correctly identifying Asian hornets
  • Identification guide
  • Where to report sightings.

Dee Ward-Thompson, Head of Technical and Membership at BPCA, explained:

"Asian hornets (Vespa velutina) have been seen in Britain since 2016 and are an invasive predatory species that could have a devastating impact on British wildlife.

"This document is designed to promote awareness, help you identify the species, and detail how you report a sighting."

You can download the document from the Member Document Library (login required)
