Asian Hornet Trap workshop held on Sunday 26th February.

We had about 27 people turn up for the Event including a group from West Dorset.

Liz Rescorla gave a quick summary on how to make it and, with no more ado, we set to. There was a fair amount of sharing information and watching others. It seemed a lot easier to make something in a group than try and follow instructions on your own.

In the end, everybody managed to make a trap and, having made one, it will be a lot easier to make others.

It was suggested that we should keep an eye on the Bee Base web site on the Asian Hornet Trap (Monitoring) as the instructions have already been amended and adaptations are coming forward all the time.

After the workshop, tea and cake were enjoyed by all.
