Asian Hornet

Vespa velutina

By the time the Asian hornet queens hibernate - in early winter - many of them are already fertile, and shelter in safe cavities, mostly in putrid or wet areas, such as in heaps of rotted wood. Then, in spring, they come out of hibernation and begin a voracious search for sweet substance, and mainly pollen.

After feeding they recover their strength and seek places that are suitable to the construction of nests for their future colonies

🔆 SFERA TRAP IN BEEHIVES - against Asian hornet 🔆

IMPORTANT: Sfera Trap is used in apiary in summer time, leaving out its LED luminaire, to reduce the pressure caused by Vespa velutina on beehives 

It should be positioned when the pressure of the Asian hornet increases (usually in summer time) until the end of the summer, using a proteinaceous bait.


Assemble the two semispheres and then wrap the trap with a transparent plastic film (such as cling film, or two clear shower cups). Then apply a suitable glue.
