The Asian hornet (Vespa velutina) is a non-native species that is invading Europe, having been introduced by accident in the south of Framce a few years ago.
It is prolific and in September 2018 it was found in Hampshire
. Our rivers provide a perfect pathway for its progress through the county.
A nest of Asian hornets will quickly decimate a colony of honeybees but ALL species of insect
are at risk as this predator has no particular preference.
