BBKA Asian Hornet Conference
8th February 2020 @ 10:00 - 16:00
For Information – attendance for OBKA will be coordinated through the OBKA Committee
This conference is free and for all Asian Hornet Team Leaders or representatives from Area Associations. Initially there will be an opportunity for two representatives from each Association area but if requested more individuals may be able to attend, it is dependent on the maximum numbers in the hall. Regional Bee Inspectors are also invited.
The purpose of the conference is to learn more about Asian Hornets and the current research, examine the experience during 2019 and develop a way forward considering suggestions from those involved in incidents
Nigel Semmence, Sandra Gray (NBI) and Belinda Philipson (Defra Policy) will update the conference on the current position and also answer questions during the conference.
Steve Martin will be sharing his knowledge about Asian Hornets and Xesus Feas will share his experience and research about the Asian Hornets in Portugal.
If you would like to attend please send your name, email address and Association name to the BBKA office or telephone the office to book a place. Initially each Association can register two representatives but please apply and join the waiting list if you would like to attend. We will book a larger hall for the conference if numbers indicate it is required.
This is a chance to influence the development of policy surrounding the elimination of non native Asian Hornets in the UK. It will also be an opportunity to share best practice with other team leaders.
I look forward to hearing from you
BBKA Asian Hornet Coordinator
