Asian hornets: What's all the buzz about vespa velutina?

Since they were accidentally introduced to France in 2004, Asian hornets have spread to Spain, the Channel Islands and the UK.

John De Carteret, a beekeeper in Jersey, has been taking pictures and filming the invasive species to document their spread and to learn more about their habits.
