Guidance on identification can be found on the Asian hornet pages of BeeBase where you will find a very useful Asian hornet ID sheet and Asian hornet poster which is available for identification purposes.
When monitoring for the hornet, please hang out monitoring traps, baiting them with sweet or protein based baits. In addition, monitor the local forage, in particular the ivy, as hornets may be seen foraging for nectar.
