Asiatic hornet nest detection JBs 3/2/2011
Hi everybody,

I had a request by beekeepers to use thermal imaging to detect asiatic hornet nests. The goal is their destruction as soon as possible to protect the hives.
I would like to know if someone has experience in this type of activity?
Thanks for your reply.

No personal experience but I have seen images on the internet of both bee and termite nests inside walls. Both are living creatures and generate heat. Termite nests for instance are about 30C above ambient. Give it a try, should work well.
