    Homemade Wasp killer Take a plastic bottle & cut the neck off. Remove the cap,flip the neck upside down, and place the neck into the bottle. Tape and/or staple the top together. Bait the trap. The wasps should enter the trap completely in order to access the bait. Some bait ideas include: Meat - Dishwashing liquid and water Sugar and water Soda with a few drops of hand soap Hang it up outside. Empty the trap regularly. Be sure the wasps are dead before removing them.

Soooo trying this wasp/bee trap this summer if we have a problem.

Add a mixture of vinegar, sugar and salt. The wasps are attracted to the sweet and sour scent yet bees don’t seem to be attracted by this sour mixture whereas a honey mix would be a fatal attractant. The down-side of this wasp trap is it also attracts and traps beneficial insects such as lacewing and hoverflies which are a natural pest control of aphids, so watch timing and usage spaces.

Homemade fly/wasp/yellow jacket trap. I made several of these last summer around the chicken area. Worked very well. Simply throw away when full. Avoid sweet bait if you don't want to accidentally trap honey bees. Meat will get more wasps and yellow jackets, rotten stuff will get hornets and flies.

Homemade Wasp Traps - 1) Sugar water (but also kills honey bees) 2) Vinegar, sugar, salt mixture (less attracting to honey bees)

a string to it, or affixing a screw that you can use to hang. 6) Empty the trap - but first make sure the wasps are dead by

I just made one of these yesterday - thought I wa brilliant but seems someone else had already thought of it!

Prairie Story: Homemade Wasp Trap

Homemade Mosquito trap...a lot of other pinners complained that when they tried this it didn't work...even with fresh yeast or with dark paper around it or in warm dark corner of the yard. I don't think we'll lose much by trying, but not getting my hopes up.
