Register as a professional eradicator
In 2021, VBI coordinates the detection and removal of nests of the Asian hornet. This is done in cooperation with INBO, Vespawatchers, volunteers, firefighters and local municipalities. Extra security measures should be taken when removing a nest of the Asian hornet. As such, VBI organizes nest removal training specified for this species. Please, contact the VBI in case you are interested in participating to such a training. Professional wasp eradicators (fire fighter teams, private enterprises, pest control organizations, …) are granted access to the management webpage that hosts an interactive module for control and registration of Asian hornet nests. Central to this module is an updated list of validated nests and control actions to be assigned to nests. As a registered user, more information about particular nests, for example address and contact details of the owner, are shared in order to facilitate communication to nest owners. To enable EU level reporting of the Asian hornet invasion (1143/2014), wasp eradicators are invited to accurately provide information about their eradication actions.
