Wasps Traps
There are many different types of wasps traps available. From bags, glass bottles, plastic bottles, cans to d.i.y. cola bottle traps. All are designed to attract wasps inside them and to keep them there. The traps contain a sweet smelling liquid that attracts the wasps, a wide funnel end allows them to get inside easily while making it nearly impossible for them to get back out. Once the wasp is inside the trap, it is likely to drown in the liquid. To make your own wasp traps, you need a plastic bottle, a pair of scissors,  a stapler or sticky tape. The first step is to cut the cone part of the bottle off with the cap. Unscrew the bottle cap and place the cone back into the bottle pointing downwards. Using staples or sticky tape, secure the cone in place. The next step is to partly fill the remains of the bottle with something to attract the wasps.

The filling should be clear of the entrance to the trap so that the wasps are clear to get in. Filling ideas are:

  • Meat

  • Dishwasher liquid and water

  • Squashed up grapes

  • Sugar mixed with lemon juice

  • Cooler

  • Beer

  • Sugar mixed with water

  • Sugar mixed with vinegar

  • Flat soda

With any of these, if you add a little bite of washing up liquid, even if a wasps escapes It will be poisoned and die. The bottle can be stood anywhere  suitable such as away from were you may spend time in your garden. You can also tape string to the bottle so you may hang it up somewhere. Depending on how you made your trap, whether you stapled it or taped it together, you may be able to take it apart to empty it out and use it again. If you don't want the hassle or fancy doing that, you can always make a new one.
