The Vespa-Watch project is a joint project of the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) and Honeybee Valley (UGent) in the context of the 'Citizen Science' call of the Flemish Government Department of Economy, Science and Innovation of 11 December 2017.

The aim of the project is to better understand and manage the spread of the invasive hornet Vespa velutina in Belgium, with the help of citizen scientists. Via the website https://vespawatch.be anyone can report observations of Vespa velutina or similar looking species. These are synchronized with iNaturalist for community validation. We try to guide users in recognizing the correct species, but incorrect or unidentifiable observations are unfortunately unavoidable.

vespawatch is not following anyone.
