A recently published study conducted in 10 apiaries in the Eure department in the summer/autumn of 2019 compared the effectiveness and selectiveness of three Asian hornet (Vespa velutina) trapping devices commonly used by beekeepers.

To help fight against this pest and meet the various needs reported by users of the current VespaCatch trap, Véto-pharma has developed a new trap that’s sturdier and easier to use.
Every year is a little bit worse. In April, beekeepers in France start to see the first signs of the Asian hornet invasion. Founder females wake up early in April to build a new nest, lay eggs and start a new colony.
