The Aims of the Asian Hornet Action Team are Fourfold
- To increase the numbers of people working on each case of incursion to assist Bee Inspectors who are thin on the ground.
- To get ahead of the game while waiting for formal Identification of an incursion by NNSS and NBU.
- To give local beekeepers and public some reassurance and confidence that the hornets are being dealt with sooner rather than later.
- To educate BKA members and the public in the identification and risk of Vespa velutina, as our colleagues in Jersey are doing successfully.
