Below is a map showing the location of Asian Hornet Traps given to members of the Dorchester and Weymouth Beekeepers. The spread is not too bad though we could do with some more traps further North.
The risk of the appearance of the Asian Hornet increases as the weather gets warmer and vigilance is important.
- Those of us with traps should be checking them daily.
- Those of us with bees should be carefully looking at their hives to see if there are Asian Hornets “hawking”.
- all of us can go walking in the countryside looking for nests.
We all have a part to play in this fight.
