Please go to:- https://standrews.org.gg/hedges/ Landowners and gardeners are reminded that as well as taking care to avoid injuring hedgehogs, birds and other wildlife, they must also take great care care to avoid cutting or strimming through any hidden Asian Hornet nests. This advice is not only directed to those cutting by hand, but also to those using tractor mounted equipment. Disturbance of a hornet nest will result in vigorous defensive action by the occupants, with potentially painful and serious consequences for anyone in the vicinity. It is therefore worth taking a little time to check for signs of nests before any cutting and clearance work is carried out, either during the statutory hedge cutting periods or, at any other time of the year.
