Use a medium sized glass jar (or any other material) and trash the lid. Insert bait and swathe the top of the jar with aluminum foil. Bind the foil with an elastic band and perforate holes in the center of it. The size of the holes should allow easy access for the wasps. The objective is for wasps to eat bait and entrap themselves ultimately dying.



Select bait to lure wasps. Regularly, wasps seek enriched foods with protein and sugar like juices, marmalade, soda, and most meats (including pet food). A composite of both is handy.

Dangle solid bait (meat, fruit) within a bottle and attach string (or tie) to the opening. Assure the bait is deep in the bottle to ensnare the wasps.


Try liquid bait solutions like:

  • ¬†¬†alcohol and orange juice, crushed grapes, soda, sugar and lemon extract, sugar water, syrup and water, or wine

Another alternative is combining one teaspoon of sugar with the same proportion of liquid detergent and water. The liquid detergent is a quick lethal substance. Yellow colored bottles allures wasps.

Suspend many traps for a large wasp problem in various sites with high traffic. Yet situate them at least 20 feet apart from areas with frequent human activity.

Wasps spawn and create nests between March-April. So they’ll be exploring for enriched protein nutriment. Typical meat baits for wasps are meat or tuna. Eliminating the queen usually compels a bee colony to migrate or hive-split.

When cleaning a trap ensure wasp are deceased so they don’t return to the nest. When wasps are exacerbated they virulently beleaguer their victim. Don’t smash wasps because they discharge a pheromone indicating danger nearby to the colony.
