Asian Hornets have been Found and identified in Gloucestershire by National Bee Unit
There is a strategy in place. If you think you see an Asian Hornet try to photograph only kill it if it is and Asian Hornet.
I saw a hornet for the first time at Baddersley Clinton a couple of weeks ago harassing the gardens’ bee hive. I reported it to the gardeners to tell the apiarist and head gardener - I think it was a European one but didn’t get a close look
