      Karol's damnation of the use of FC (given current AH UK* status) is understandable, but Old Farm's point is valid: if the NBU wait until...

      Like I said, it was the only research I've found. It explored one use of fipronil, that's all. The system brings some relief from...

      We should be using monitors, that way no bycatch is harmed. If AHs are found to be in the area, set traps, and inspect regularly. If...

      Two completely different systems. There isn't much research on fipronil and Asian Hornets, the pellet system was the only one I found...

      Workers start emerging in May. Queens continue to forage, but for how long seems variable. The latest they caught a queen foraging in...

      Bettenham, if you see an AH on your bait as early as March, then it will be a queen so kill it (and keep, as you say, to report) right...

      You wouldn't need to release it if you didn't capture it. As I understand it the tracking teams were marking the hornets while the feed...

      You don't have to catch AHs to apply FC, it can be dotted on their thorax while they are feeding. They are not aggressive when feeding...

      If you capture a non native species, they should be destroyed, not release. applies equally to AH, signal crayfish, grey squirrels and...

      Putting a monitor somewhere you can look at it frequently is the best thing. Monitors don't trap, you just have to observe. If there...

      Maybe I'm daft, but I think it's reasonable to expect all beekeepers to be able to identify an AH, know how to monitor, trap and report...

      There is still a great deal that is not known about AHs, advise changes as knowledge grows and I have as much right to an opinion as the...

      It’s a shame the “experts” haven’t communicated with the BBKA of the way forward. What to do in March…. “………can help catch foundress queens”

      I have to disagree. If beeks know there are AHs in the area the first reaction will be putting out traps and frequent checking of the...
