17th October 2018: Workshop on the use of the harmonic radar for the detection of Asian hornet’s nests

Few days after the detection of the nests in Finale Ligure and La Spezia (Liguria, Italy), the LIFE STOPVESPA Project organized a workshop in the locality of Calvo, Ventimiglia (IM). This event allowed to demonstrate to beekeepers and stakeholders, and particularly to those which could not be present during the previous activities, the use of the harmonic radar for tracking the flight of Asian hornets and detect the positions of their nests.

Vespa velutina and possible misidentifications

Vespa velutina and possible misidentifications

During the last months we received some records about insects misidentified that were confused with Vespa velutina. In Italy, there are 23 species of social wasps and a wide variety of other insects species. Often their colours and fling behaviours could trick an unexperienced observer. One of the most common case of misidentification is linked to Megascolia maculata flavifrons (Fabricius, 1775) (photo).

A new technology is helping to save honey bees: the harmonic radar to detect Vespa velutina’s nests

A new technology is helping to save honey bees: the harmonic radar to detect Vespa velutina’s nests

One of the aims of the LIFE STOPVESPA Project is the development of a new technology for the control of Vespa velutina populations: the harmonic radar, which allows tracking yellow-legged hornets and detecting their nests. Once discovered, nests are removed before new founder queens could emerge. The aim of the LIFE STOPVESPA Project is to provide an innovative technology that will be particularly useful in new invasion’s outbreaks or beyond the colonized front,
