Video: How to trap the Asian hornet?

The Asian hornet is a predatory invasive species that arrived in France in 2004 from China. Known for decimating the population of bees and other pollinating insects, it has colonised France and all of Europe. In a CNRS research laboratory, biologist Eric Darrouzet is trying to develop a pheromone trap that only affects this invasive species.
