Did you see that thing on TV about the Asian Hornet is now likely to be a really proper big risk? Apparently more survived the winter than usual due to the milder conditions so the population will increase dramatically. It is a worry but I'm sure the clever guys in lab coats are busy looking for a solution. Just as I'm sure our bee keepers are being creative trying to keep them out of their hives, but that is probably a challenge as on the video clip they showed the Hornets don't have to get in the hive as they attack the honey bees on the wing returning to the hive. Bad news indeed!
