A picture is worth a thousand words, thanks for posting
it. Looks like yours is working very well!!

RE: Wasp Trap

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

RE: Wasp Trap

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

RE: Wasp Trap

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

RE: Wasp Trap


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.
