Small Hive Beetle

ASIAN HORNET Vespa velutina

An invasive non-native hornet originally from Asia. A highly aggressive predator of native insects, posing a significant threat to honey bees and other pollinators. Accidentally introduced to France in 2004 where it spread rapidly. In 2016 the first UK sighting was confirmed in Gloucestershire.  Confirmed sightings have since occurred elsewhere.


Non-Native Species Secretariat, (email: nnss@apha.gsi.gov.uk), should be notified of any sightings.
