May I ask what you put in the water to attract them?

Just put in some apple juice of fruit juice so it will attract them

Thanks, I'm going to try it. I've spent a lot of bucks on traps that only half work.

Question,

Our wasp are starting to be attracted to meat more than sugar. Some are still after the hummingbird nectar, but do you think that putting the juice from a piece of steak will attract them?

I think I'll make one with fruit juice and one with meat juice to see which one will be better.

I'll let ya know how that works out.
