So far in 2023 there have been 24 Asian hornet nests found in 22 locations.
The NBU responded to a credible sighting of Asian hornet in Thamesmead on the 20th of August. A nest was located yesterday. It will be destroyed and removed later in the week.
Over the weekend the NBU located a nest in Dover, a nest in Rochester, a nest in St Margaret’s Bay and a further nest in Maidstone.
Active operations have also been initiated at a third location in Maidstone.
