BBC: Invasive Asian honey-bee killing hornet spotted in UK

Ironically, the honey bee isn’t native to Europe either… but also comes from South/South-East Asia.

“A Defra spokesman said, the hornet found in the Tetbury area had been killed and was undergoing DNA testing to establish how it arrived in the UK.
Meanwhile, bee inspectors are using infrared cameras and traps in a bid to locate and destroy any nests in a three-mile area radius around the initial sighting.”
