Le frelon asiatique poursuit son vol conquérant
Report in Ouest-France about the invasion into Western France by the asiatique hornet that was accidentally introduced into France through the port of Bordeaux in 2004. One of the problems associated with this hornet is that it attacks and kills bees, which are already under threat from disease of agricultural pollution.
There is a campaign of trapping that is designed to stop it spreading eastwards into France.
