WHY-vangelists share their photos

I caught five yellowjacket queens and one blackjacket queen over the weekend in my W*H*Y Trap. Unfortunately, I can't show you this catch because I forgot to take a photo of it -- it was time to rebait the trap and I was eager to do so to catch the paper wasps I saw flying around.

Thankfully, we have some early WHY-vangelists who have done a better job of documenting what their W*H*Y Trap has caught so far this spring. Take a look...

Pat Pfeifer in Plummer, Idaho had a good early catch of wasps in the top chamber of his W*H*Y Trap (note the bodies that had already sunk to the bottom of the water):

This photo shows a trap in Canada -- Creston, BC to be exact. The catch is from late April/early May:

Here are some photos showing the top and the bottom of the W*H*Y Trap in Greenacres, Washington:

Our favorite is still from Stamford, TX -- this shows a catch made back in February!


Keep those W*H*Y Trap photos coming, folks!
