A "compelling" report of an Asian Hornet on the UK mainland in 2022 has been made near Chelmsford in Essex. 

Bee Inspectors have already set up enhanced surveillance in the area - all local beekeepers are asked to be on alert for any hornets hawking their hives or visiting flowers. And if they have traps to set them up. 

Your local Asian Hornet Action Team can help with any queries.
