Asian Hornet

Confirmed sighting of an Asian Hornet in Kent.

This is a serious problem  and if you spot them please report to DEFRA or via the Asian hornet App. If possible, take a photo of it and an exact location so it can be tracked to its nest and destroyed. One Asian hornet can eat 50 honey bees a day!

What to look for…

–  much bigger than a wasp -up to 2” inches in length

– yellow “socks” on each leg

– deep orange head

– black thorax
