The advance of the Asian hornet creates a buzz in the UK media

argylesock says… Here’s another threat to the honeybee (Apis mellifera). The Asian hornet (Vespa velutina) is now established in France and no doubt, it’ll soon reach the British Isles. The article I’m reblogging here includes info on how we can report any sightings of this very unwelcome insect.


About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
