Press Release

Tell local Beekeepers if you find an Asian Hornet

A new smartphone app has been launched today to help beekeepers and the public make a quicker report if they find a suspected Asian Hornet.

Asian Hornet Watch is designed to give you high quality reference pictures and use the GPS on your phone to record exactly where your photo was taken. It will be sent straight to the team that is working to identify the hornets as quickly as possible. It is available as a free download from today for both android and IOS phones.

The BBKA will be encouraging all beekeepers to use the app but to also tell their local groups if they find something.


BBKA Statement on the EU wide ban on Neonicotinoid Pesticides

As and when this evidence is published the BBKA would expect to review both it and the recommendations of the EFSA and advise our members accordingly.
