Thanks Stephen for this.
You can imagine I would be keen on any help to combat Vespa velutina which is threatening Europe.
I am hoping for something more rapid coming through. Specific attractant? Releasing sterile males?
Could you please vote for Vespa velutina on this link please https://dangerous25.imascientist.org.uk/vote/
This will help Seirian to get funding for her project to complete a full genome sequence for the hornet which will help to understand it more and possibly give ways of controlling it.
