Constitution of the Cumbria Asian Hornet Team

The purpose of the Cumbria Asin Hornet Team (CAHT) is to monitor, inform and reduce the impacts of the invasive species Vespa velutina, commonly know as the Asian or Yellow Legged Hornet. CAHT will operate in accordance with instruction and guidance from the British Beekeepers Association, the DEFRA AHPA National Bee Unit and the Non Native Species Secretariat.  


All volunteers are to operate under the conditions of the BBKA coordinators and verifiers codes of conduct and to keep themselves abreast of changes and updates to the roles via the BBKA website link here. The CAHT members will always act in coordination with the Cumbria volunteer coordinators and make sure their actions are recorded with them.

Volunteers will always seek a landowner or manager's permission to operate on their land and respect their and other volunteer's privacy and use of personal information, in accordance with the law. Volunteers will assess all actions and conduct in respect of their and others safety and consider the appropriate risk assessment actions.
