    It is important to report any suspected sighting of Asian hornets as soon as possible.

    Vigilance is particularly required in southern parts of England and Wales and around major ports.  The Asian hornet is active mainly between April and November and is inactive over the winter.

Hornet Clearwing Moth

Sesia apiformis   (Hornet moth )




Found in English woodlands from the south to the midlands and into East Anglia

The hornet moth or hornet clearwing is a large moth native to Europe and the Middle East and has been introduced to North America. Its protective coloration is an example of Batesian mimicry, as its similarity to a hornet makes it unappealing to predators. Wikipedia
