Loving the Disposable Yellowjacket Trap

We heard from two customers last week who were so happy with the RESCUE! Disposable Yellowjacket Trap that they just had to share photos and video!

Mike in Capitola, California showed us how the yellowjackets were going crazy over the trap:

And Cheryl-Lynn here in Spokane Valley, Washington sent us photos illustrating how well the traps were working on a family camping trip to Downs Lake, where they found this yellowjacket nest in the ground:

Hanging up several of our traps helped reduce the population dramatically, as they got quite full -- literally teeming with yellowjackets:

Here's a closeup. Note the paper wasp (to the right of the yellow cone -- the one with longer wings) trying to get in!

Recently, we built a deck and roof from off of our sunporch. Not long afterwards, due probably to the attraction of wood, we were invaded by yellow jackets. You couldn't even enjoy sitting on the deck without brushing yellow jackets away constantly. We checked into some sort of trap and found the WHY trap at the nearby Lowes. As soon as we got home, we assembled the trap, and positioned it in our yard at the prescribed distance. It was a very warm day and we expected results. Nothing. We waited until the next day. Again, nothing. We even waited a few days. Still nothing. So, we decided it was a good container. We replaced all of the attractant with some cola. Within minutes, we had one yellow jacket. Later, we had many more. The bottom line, the container and attractant didn't work as prescribed. It was a waste of our money. Although, it is a good container for the cola attractant. I suggest going back to the drawing board, or just sell the container and then tell the purchaser to add coke.

Nothing so far for me either after a week. I placed it near a Wisteria plant that constantly has wasps on it, and none seem to be "attracted" to the attractant. Maybe I should just dump the attractant out put Coke in like the other post suggests.

Our water feature is swarming with yellow jackets but so far none have been attracted to the traps we set up a couple of days ago. Thanks for the Coke suggestion - we may try that soon.
