A woman suffering with a wasp sting allergy says the spread of Asian hornets in the Channel Islands is "terrifying" and needs to be stopped.
Michelle Wason says the situation is particularly worrying, as the island has a shortage of adrenaline injectors.
"If I were to get stung, particularly by the hornets that are prevalent in Jersey at the moment it could mean the difference between life and death to me," she said.
Since 2004 Asian hornets have spread across France into Spain, the Channel Islands and parts of the UK.
In 2018 so far a combined total of 56 Asian hornet queens and nests have been found and destroyed in Jersey.
Beekeeper John De Carteret, who is part of a group of volunteers hunting down Asian hornet nests in the island said the insects are not usually aggressive, unless a nest is disturbed.
However, he added: "As the number of nests increases there is a greater risk of people being stung.
The States of Jersey has been approached for comment.
