Wasps Attacking Monarch Cats

CavilerNovember 16, 2013

Hey Y'all,

I have seen at least two species of wasp attack and kill my Monarch cats. I have also found a chrysalis that had been gnawed into and cleaned out.
Does anyone know any effective counters to these little bastards? I can't poison them, obviously. Is there something I can plant that will keep them away but not bother my cats? Not just Monarch cats, but they are my main variety by far.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I'm not sure what a monarch cat is, but I DO poison the wasps! They present a serious health hazard to my family and pets because they've managed to find an entry into my home. The last time I was stung, I had a severe allergic reaction. They have been swarming here, as well.
There are commercial wasp traps available, but I haven't had great success with those.
