Asian Hornet

WBKA is part of the UK-wide effort to track and resist the spread of the Asian Hornet, an invasive species which threatens to devastate the UK population of honey bees and other pollinators. A major predator of honeybees, the hornet is also known to eat many other species of pollinators including flies and wasps.
