Warmer weather and climate change in general make it easy for invasive species to find new places to go. When it comes to stinging insects, humans aren’t the only ones who have to worry. Honeybees in the U.K. are likely to be facing a threat from giant Asian hornets.
These hornets have been seen in Tetbury, Gloucestershire so far, and they’re expected to be in Warwickshire by summer. Giant Asian hornets aren’t as much of a problem for people as they are for honeybees. These hornets are known for preying on honeybees, which could significantly reduce their populations. A decrease in honeybee populations can take a toll on local crops.
Experts have been making the public in the U.K. aware of the threat of giant Asian hornets for this summer. The general public in Warwickshire has been given opportunities to learn more about these hornets, such as how to identify them. They also have a chance to learn what to do if they spot any.
While you won’t have to call pest control companies in New Jersey for help with giant Asian hornets, there are other summer pests to be on the lookout for, such as wasps and bees.
