Name

Vespa affinis (Linnaeus)Wikispecies linkPensoft Profile

Distribution

There is a single report of a colony of this Asian species in North America, from San Pedro, in Los Angeles Co., California in 2010 (LSK, personal observation). It is not clear if the species has become established in California. It has also been introduced into New Zealand. Its native range is from India to the Bismarck Islands.

Biology

In Asia, Vespa affinis builds large aerial nests of up to several thousand workers (Archer 1997[13]). These wasps are predatory on other insects including honey bees near their hives.
