Asian hornets decimate bee colonies - find out about Asian hornet control from All Aspects Pest Control covering Wokingham, Reading and surrounds of Berkshire.
The asian hornet had been found on the Channel island of Alderney last summer, meaning that this is the first recorded case of the asian hornet in the UK, the hornets are a major threat to bee keepers as their main prey are honey bees.
