BBKA Asian Hornet Week 10-16 Sept 2018

September 10 - September 16

The BBKA are organising a Asian Hornet Week from 10-16 September.

This is the time of year when Asian Hornets start ‘hawking’ honey bees at hive entrances.

The aim of the week is to encourage all beekeepers to spend several one-hour sessions looking out for Asian hornets at their apiaries during fine weather.

Further details are in the article on p268 of August’s BBKA News (Edition 225)

The Asian hornet identification leaflet, that all beekeepers are recommended to have a copy of, can be downloaded by clicking on this link:
