WHERE to find the W*H*Y Attractant

Early indications are that the new W*H*Y Trap for Wasps, Hornets & Yellowjackets will be a big seller for 2009. Customers in the Southern U.S. are already using it with success in catching the queen wasps, hornets and yellowjackets before they build nests.

WHYTA_WaspHornetYellowjacketAttractant We've heard from some customers that finding the W*H*Y Trap Attractant Kit has been a challenge. We definitely don't want it to be, and we're constantly working to make the product available in more locations. Our experience is that retailers commonly underestimate the demand for the refill attractants, despite our best sales efforts to get more on the shelf.

If you are not able to find the W*H*Y refills at the store where you purchased the trap, your best bet may be online. Below is a list of online retailers carrying the W*H*Y Attractant. Each link goes directly to the order page for the product.











As always, we appreciate hearing from you regarding any issues you may have with finding our product.

I bought the Fly trap last year at WAL-MART & I loved it . It was almost full of flies when I took them down. When does the fly traps come into stores? They sure took care of all the flies that would have tried to come into my home.....

I'm glad you're so happy with our Fly Trap, Elizabeth! It should be in the stores now -- we've shipped quite a few of them so far this year. If you don't find them at Wal*Mart, try Home Depot, Lowe's, ACE Hardware or True Value.

Are you going to offer long-acting attractant cartridges for the W-H-Y traps like the Rescue Yellow Jacket Attractant 10 Week Refills?

Tom, thanks for asking. Our R&D department is presently working on a longer-lasting attractant for the WHY Trap that could be available next year.

I bought my W*H*Y trap at my local Wal Mart (Gettysburg,PA).Love the trap but my only complaint is the store has the wrong refill next to the trap.They are only carrying one trap and one refill, you would assume they are compatable.I had to go on-line to reorder the refill. Like I said the trap works great. I would recommend to everyone with bee problems. Thanks,Larry

What is the difference in colors is a wasp verses a yellow jacket?

Posted by: Christopher G. Wiegman | Mar 21, 2010 12:28:59 AM

Christopher: Since paper wasps and yellowjackets are so similar in their yellow and black colorations, it can be difficult to tell them apart. One distinguishing characteristic is the color of the antennae. Yellowjackets have black antennae, while most paper wasp antennae are yellow or golden in color. Another way to tell them apart that doesn't involve color is by observing their legs when the insects are flying. Paper wasp legs will dangle down during flight, while yellowjacket legs won't. I hope this helps distinguish the insects near you!

I just discovered your WHY product for paper wasps at Home Depot. I have been successfully using the Rescue product for yellowjackets for several years, so I am pleased to learn of this new product; however, I would like to know if you have yet developed an Attractant Cartridge that lasts longer than 2 weeks?
Thanks, Nancy

Nancy, thanks for using our products! We are working on a way to make the attractants for the WHY Trap last longer than 2 weeks, but it may be a couple more years before we have something on the market.

Is there any place I can buy more of the felt pads that are used in the bottom chamber of the WHY trap? I mistakenly threw my original felt pads away, and since none are included in the refil kits, I don't know what I should do. If I can't buy replacements anywhere, do you have any suggestions of how to bait the bottom chamber using something else to pour the attractant onto? ANy help or suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks, Dan

Hi there. My husband and I direct a camp in Guadalajara, Spain. We were recently passing a McDonalds and noticed one of your products "rescue flybag" hanging near their dumpster. We wrote down the name because this (and your W.H.Y.) product sounds like what we┬┤ve been searching for. Now for the big question...do you sell any of your products in retail stores in Madrid, Spain? If not, do you know of a website where we could order your products and have them shipped to us? Thanks for your help. Joy Loveday

Hung up your bee trap on Fri. July 16th and while there are many bees in my yard, not one has entered the trap. Any suggestions?

Posted by: Pete | Jul 19, 2010 1:14:08 PM

Your info is very interesting BUT I cannot find a list of stores in the Seattle area in which to purchase the unit nor it's refills. Would you please advise me?

I can't find a list of stores anywhere! Got mine at Costco; where can I get refill attractants?

Posted by: Lynne Fonda | Jun 10, 2011 3:34:26 PM

I have an older style trap using only the liquid on a cotton ball. I can't find - purchase that anywhere!

Can you please help.

Thank you

This product works great, but I should not have to buy a new trap just because I can't find the refill Attractant. Please advise the markets/warehouses that buy this product that the consumers are not happy because we can't find refill attractant. That should always be an option! I paid alot for just two of these traps, I have kept them in good condition and should be reused more than once. We live in such a disposible world and it's getting out of hand. Do your part as a big company and make it easier to get the refill or put the recipe on line for us to look up. Be fair, not greedy!
