About the author

BunkBBKA copy.jpg

Dr Sarah Bunker has a PhD in insect flight and has been a beekeeper in Devon for many years.
She is passionate about insects, even the stingy sort! In the summer of 2018 she gained experience tracking Asian hornets in Jersey, where beekeepers use the ‘Jersey method’ to find the hornets’ large paper nests.
When she returned to the UK, she felt compelled to write this practical handbook to inform beekeepers and others about these extraordinary insects and what can be done about them.

This second edition is the result of a second visit to Jersey to track hornets, and detailed investigation of a large number of academic articles, as well as discussions with scientists in the UK and abroad.
