This mornings catch at my St Saviour Apiary (that’s bee hives to those of you who don’t know the term) another three of our Asian friends turned up.

Just in case you don’t get the point of all this, and think they’re cuddly insects…here it is the 6mm long, needle sharp, un-barbed for repeated stings and quite capable of penetrating our specialist beekeeping suits or your clothing…

“Watch out there’s an Asian Hornet about”, where ever you are in Jersey.
