Hornet Watch is an app designed to help the early detection of Asian Hornet in the UK following the first confirmed record in September 2016. Asian Hornet is a non-native species within the UK and could have a serious impact on our native insects and honeybees so early detection is important. There are a number of native insects in the UK that look very similar, and are common and widespread. Records of these species are equally welcome to help map their distribution and Hornet Watch provides an identification guide to help determine which species you have seen. Please do include a photograph with your record if possible to help us confirm the identity of the species.

Asian Hornet Watch
Good app. The only suggestion would be a few more images in the identification gallery of their underside. The closest I get to Hornets is when they are battering the window panes at night. So images of the same underside view would be helpful. Alan
Fantastically well thought out and relevant app
Fab pics and just the right amount of detail for those who are interested in recording the spread of this pest. Gently expanded my knowledge of the winged insects in our garden too. Thank you very much to the developers.
Asian Hornet Review
The guidance related to login and/or change of password is particularly useless. The email message for change is prompt but any attempt to change your password or login is blocked and generally impossible to remedy. I could not even send the review! Please sort out the problems.
