Bring peace of mind to your outdoor gatherings with a beautiful and reusable wasp trap that's a green alternative to pesticides and other preventative measures. Bait with sweetened fruit juice or a small piece of meat (not included), and wasps and yellowjackets fly in and are unable to escape the funnel shape of the bottom of the bottom tunnel -- while helpful bees remain uninterested!
Instructions for use: Remove cork; tip trap to the side. Pour about 1/8 cup sugar-water, soda, or place a small chunk of meat into the opening and replace cork. Hang or place filled trap away from people.
Instructions for catch-and-release use: Remove cork; place a small piece of meat or apple slice at bottom of trap and replace cork. Place trap away from people. After trap has become filled with wasps, remove cork away from human activity to allow their safe escape back to their nest, taking care to cover your exposed skin to avoid bites and stings.

We got a set of two, both green. I am not disappointed. I had previously made homemade traps with 2 liter bottles and used apple juice as bait. They worked okay, but didn't look great. We chose green as hornets and wasps are most attracted to bright greens and yellow. We also decided to fill with old hummingbird nectar instead of using anything else. Worked like a charm. We have only had it a few days and have to empty it tonight and refill it since it is already full of hornets. Our hummingbird feeder has been left in peace and these look really nice in the yard.
Very colorful! Haven't used them yet, but it seems they will work fine.
I love these Glass Wasp Traps! They are beautiful and a welcome addition to my porch. I have also caught many of those annoying little gnats ... so they are definitely worth the money.
