Trap catches wasps, hornets and yellow jackets. Six entry tunnels attract from all directions. Once they've entered, they can't escape. Durable construction allows you to reuse the traps year after year. Controls without the use of chemicals or poisons, so it's safe for you and the environment. Yellow jackets and wasps are most aggressive in the early spring while forming nests and in late fall while they're searching for sweet food sources. Simply add your bait (cat food, raw meat or fish) and wasps will enter and be trapped.

Works like a charm

Comments about : Yellow Jacket and Wasp Trap:
We were having trouble with wasps around our hummingbird feeder. This trap, with a little grape juice and a spoonful of cat food, did the trick. No more wasps. We're so glad we used it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So many Wasps in our yard
from Campobello SC
Purchased 2 of these last summer. Followed instructions. Hated the mess from the rotted meat and juice combo and got little to show. LIGHT BULB MOMENT. Wasps were always going to my Hummingbird feeders. So I used a sugar mix like I do for the birds...added a few drops of non scented dish soap. WA_LA works so much better. Cleaning out is still yucky. The heat in the south evaporates enough liquid to make it thick and syrupy... but a hose inside once I dump the dead bugs is easier to get most stuff out. An Old toothbrush and dish soap does the rest. then refilled and place them outside again. One is on the front porch one near the back porch. Having a Pool in the back yard draws these things more... so it may take time but it is now finally doing the job. BTW Tried paper bags... did not work.

It's Green & Works But It's Messy
By WC Tom
from Walnut Creek, CA
On the positive side, this is environmentally friendly with no constant tossing of used traps in the trash or use of pesticides. Also, it works, every week there are a good number of yellow jackets captured in the trap and I have not noticed any escaping once inside. I bought two of these traps and after a few weeks with both up, decided just to use one going forward and we are still not having yellow jacket issues in our backyard with just the one trap in place. We think it looks fine in the tree too, it really does not stick out in a negative way from an appearance standpoint.On the negative side, it is messy to clean. I am just using apple juice as bait and it works to draw in yellow jackets. I would not use proteins like canned cat food in the summer heat. I suggest hanging the trap in a shaded area so that the apple juice does not evaporate as quickly. If not too hot and not in direct sunlight, it may last up to two weeks. If you want it to work, you need to be clean it and refill it with juice every week or two. I take the entire trap down from the tree branch and the inside bottom is pretty nasty with the dead insect breaking down and stickiness from the juice, plus there are usually a lot of ants in and on it attracted by the dead insects and juice. I immediately put it down on the ground and rinse it inside/outside several times with warm water, dumping it out frequently to clear inside. Only takes a few minutes if you prepare ahead for it. If you can hang it in an area and avoid ants it would be a much easier process. I recommend it from an environmental standpoint and it is working for us in terms of reducing the number of yellow jackets in our yard, one just needs to understand that cleaning it regularly is a required and somewhat unpleasant process.
I have used this product for years!
from Haslett. MI
This product is very effective when used as directed and will even trap biting flies such as horse and deer flies. It isn't as resilient as I would like, somewhat fragile, so handle with care. Overall, I'm a satisfied customer and don't mind buying replacements from year to year because the price is right.
Let the yellow jackets go and caught bees :(
from Louisville, Colorado
I checked the trap a few hours after hanging it and it had caught one bee and two yellow-jackets (and...yes...I know the difference). When I went back later.......the bee remained caught (and dead) and the yellow jackets were gone...they had escaped. I figured I would try it once more...It caught a bee ...AGAIN...I certainly cannot support a product that is hurting an already suffering population.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Easy to use and it works1
from Masonville, CO
A good product
from Stevensville, MT
Hung this up with wasps all over the place. Not one went into this.
Merchant response: We are sorry you that your Yellow Jacket and Wasp Trap isn't working. You didn't mention what type of bait you tried, but we recommend trying a different combination of meat and fruit juice to see if a change works better for you. Don't forget to add some sugar to the mix since this helps attract the wasps. If this doesn't help, we hope you'll call our friendly customer service staff at 1-800-876-5520 so we can help you find a solution.

This trap works :-)) It's easy to use & clean. The lid screws on & off easily, both to fill the trap as well as empty it. It's transparent, so you can easily see when the liquid is gone. We hung the traps near areas where the yellow jackets are a problem, and the traps catch many each time. Every once in a while a yellow jacket will find its way back out, but for the most part, once they enter, they die. The instructions suggest putting meat or fruit in addition to fruit juice to attract the jackets. We tried that but it putrefies into a mess. We discovered that simply putting in sugar water is just as effective in attracting the jackets. We highly recommend this product :-))

Yay, it works!
from Williamsburg, Va
We had a really bad wasp/hornet problem. The little darlings were in our face every time we opened the front and back doors. I followed the directions, hung the traps near the porches, and then started the body count! It is very effective.
