Wasps have their place in the ecosystem. They’re particularly helpful in controlling pests that wreck crops. But when they happen to make their nest too close to home and pose a danger to people and household pets, they become pests themselves. One way to make a wasp trap is to cut and invert the neck portion of a plastic bottle into the body of the bottle, then bait the trap with sugar and laundry soap (or other attractive bait) before hanging it up; wasps trapped inside should have trouble getting out, but coating the opening with oil can make it even more difficult for them if an uncoated opening doesn’t seem to work well enough.
Enjoying the backyard and the outdoors is both fun and relaxing. There is nothing like sitting on the patio, BBQ going, drink in hand, until the dreaded wasps start to take over. There are some chemical methods to help you get rid you of these stinging pests, but you have to find the nest and then get close enough to it to kill them. This method allows those flying nearby to trap themselves. Thanks to wikihow.com for this tutorial on making a wasp trap. Follow the link below to learn more.
