North American Hornet Screening Tool

Screening support for Asian giant hornet surveys

Hornets in the genus Vespa play a critical role as predators in their native habitats, but in North America these species may have a disastrous impact on agriculture by reducing populations of important pollinators such as the honey bee. Hornets also pose a serious health risk to humans because of their powerful sting. North American Hornet Screening Tool is designed for anyone who may encounter these species in the U.S., including the Asian giant hornet (AGH, V. mandarinia). North American Hornet Screening Tool will assist with separating the common non-target bees and wasps from introduced hornets.
