Yellowjacket & Wasp Trap

Catch these pesky insects

Yellowjackets have been constant pests in urban environments for centuries. Their presence can be a nuisance and their aggressiveness can easily ruin a family picnic. Yellowjackets can inflict multiple stings which are very painful. Stings can lead to anaphylactic shock and even death of individuals who are allergic to yellowjackets.

Many people mistake a wasp for a honey bee. The key difference is that wasps have smooth bodies whereas bees appear to be hairy. Social wasp species (yellowjackets) are yellow with black stripes. Various species of yellowjackets can be identified by their markings on the abdomen.

Only queens overwinter. Queens emerge from hibernation in the spring and start building a nest. Populations keep building up throughout the summer and they reach their peak by the end of summer. Numbers in nests can widely vary from a few dozen to thousands depending on the species.
Yellowjackets are generally scavengers. They prey on other insects like aphids and caterpillars but they also like sweet food. Ripening pears and grapes are the favourites but other fruits will be damaged as well.
All workers die in early fall usually after the first frost. Queens hide and they overwinter in cracks and crevices, under piles of wood or any other suitable hiding place.

Yellowjacket numbers can be effectively reduced by using traps. We suggest to start trapping in the spring as queens emerge. Each queen captured means one less colony in the summer. Use our Catchy Yellowjacket & Wasp trap to trap these pesky insects. You will not regret it!

Follow the instructions on the label to set up the trap. Place traps up to 1.5 m (5 feet) above ground. Stand the trap on the ground if there no suitable place to hang the trap as many yellowjackets forage close to the ground. Make sure that traps are set up in sunny areas as yellowjackets avoid shady areas. Traps should also be 3 to 5 m (9 to 15 feet) away from areas where people gather.
