About the Event

The Asian Hornet

The Asian Hornet is here!  It was breeding on the South Coast last year and we expect to see it arrive in Guildford over the next few months. With no natural predators, an ability to increase exponentially and and an insatiable appetite it poses an unprecedented threat not just to our honeybees but to all our insect pollinators - it's the worst possible news for our already stressed biodiversity. . We look at how the Asian Hornet came to be here, the danger it poses to people and wildlife, how to recognise one and what to do if you see one. Identification sheets will be made available and you will have the opportunity to see a (dead) Asian Hornet close up.

A Taste of Honey

What is honey and how is it made? And what makes a good honey? And why does honey vary from less than £1.00 a jar to hundreds, even thousands, of pounds? And how do we spot adulterated honey (honey is one of the most adulterated foodstuffs in the world)? We look at - and taste - some of the different types of honey.

Speaker - Peter Smith. Beekeeper- Member of Guildford Beekeeping Association, Writer and Amateur Entomologist.
