A new technical awareness and reporting guidance document, on identifying Asian hornets, has been published by BPCA and Bounty Consultancy Services.

The new four-page document covers:

  • The importance of correctly identifying Asian hornets;
  • Identification guide; and
  • Where to report sightings.

Dee Ward-Thompson, head of technical and membership at BPCA, said: “Asian hornets (Vespa velutina) have been seen in Britain since 2016 and are an invasive predatory species that could have a devastating impact on British wildlife.

“This document is designed to promote awareness, help you identify the species, and detail how you report a sighting.”

The guidance can be downloaded from the BPCA Member Document Library (login required).
