If you have seen an Asian Hornet the most noticeable features are:

  • Yellow legs
  • Single yellow band near its tail
  • Narrow yellow belt at its waist
  • Rest of the body is black or dark brown
  • It is just over 2.5cms or 1 inch long

The Asian Hornet is a very serious threat so please act now. A queen Asian Hornet can lay a lot of eggs in a day so every day's delay…..
