A group of Asian hornet hunters in Jersey have been tracking down and dissecting nests.
The team is made up of around 70 volunteers who have found 40 nests so far this year.
The species was first seen in the Channel Islands in 2016. Since then, work has been going on in an attempt to slow the spread.
Although they pose no threat to humans, they have wiped out bee populations in parts of Europe, putting the insect under threat.
But the team say looking at the nests allows them to find out more about the species, which is vital to tackling the problem.
