I met with the Nanaimo folks a few days after they did the erradication. I was still working as the BCHPA rep at the time, so went to Nanaimo for a meeting a few days later. They had some very interesting show and tell stuff for us to see, and to say it was enlightening was an understatement. They showed one comb, it had brood in it, the brood was wiggling. For perspective, it had been out of the nest for a few days, and spent some time in the freezer before coming to that meeting.Yeah, Grozzie, read the epic accounts last year. Those Nanaimo folks were heroes.
Hope the Washington state folks are up to the challenge! Concerned about the Sumas Prairie area, hope the Valley Beeks are paying attention.
Grim news, indeed. Vigilance totally required.
Hey, I didn't use that term.Holger,For the record, I hate the "murder hornet" moniker...I sure hope beekeepers will lead the way in NOT using it.
