Not just Southern Europe - recorded in Gloucestershire this year and looks like it’s established itself in Jersey.


Asian hornet: Record number of queens found in Jersey Asian hornet: Record number of queens found in Jersey
Different species - that's Asian Hornet Vespa velutina, not Oriental Hornet Vespa orientalis.

One record in the UK that I know of - 5/11/2018 at the Holiday Inn next to the M271 on the western edge of Southampton. If you are signed up to iRecord you can see it here - Record of Vespa orientalis .

They have been established on Crete for quite a while , I have pics from 2013 and 2015 .Like our European Hornets they tend not to be aggressive , unlike the Asian Hornets.
