Watch Out

The video above is of a Asian Hornet, it was taken in France by Jenny Williams. The three main identification points, the entirely dark thorax, the dark segments of the abdomen and the yellow tipped legs can all be clearly seen.

By contrast the photographs on the right are of the much brighter European Hornet taken recently in one of our members apiary. Though the European Hornet was not so cooperative, rarely still long enough to take a photograph, they still clearly illustrate the differences.
