Asian hornet

Post by primohound »

I found an asian wasp - vespa velutina - in my garden sniffing around the fallen pears. Currently he is in a glass jar indoors so I could identify him properly. I can't see a nest anywhere. Am I supposed to report the wasp to anyone in authority here ? I'm in Pas-de-Calais 62134.

I would say tell the mairie. Do you know any bee-keepers as they need to know urgently?
