Further information will be posted on the website as it becomes available under Services\Asian Hornet\ Here is the link direct to the web page: https://www.bbka.org.uk/asian-hornet-action-teams As you will read in the document, the BBKA needs all Area Associations to supply contact details to the office of their Asian Hornet Area Co-Ordinator(s) as soon as possible. We are in the process of creating a map on the website, similar to the swarm map, to facilitate members of the public being able to contact your co-ordinator. We have also put on the website a document prepared by Nigel Semmence which gives an overview of Defra and other Organisations in relation to response on Asian Hornets. There will be an opportunity at the upcoming ADM to discuss any queries or suggestions with Anne and other Trustees. Please let you ADM Delegate know this so that they can ask anything on your behalf. Further information will be sent out in due course but please keep checking the website for the latest information. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. Image copyright Danrok 2018.
