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 can be very painful. These stings can lead to anaphylactic shock and death in people who are allergic to yellowjackets.
Our Catchy Yellowjacket and Wasp Bag Traps are an effective and user-friendly solution to control yellowjackets and wasps. Our traps are easy to use, and their effectiveness makes them the perfect solution. Additionally, they are reusable for the entire trapping season, reducing waste, and replacement lures are readily available.
The updated Catchy 2.0 Yellowjacket and Wasp Trap Bag is designed to effectively trap more yellow jackets and wasps. Its new design eliminates the front and back grommets, so you can trap more.
Only queens overwinter. They emerge from hibernation in the spring and start building nests. Populations keep increasing throughout the summer and reach their peak by the end of summer. The number of nests varies widely from a few dozen to thousands depending on the species.
Yellowjackets are generally scavengers that prey on other insects, such as aphids and caterpillars, but they also favour sweet foods. Ripening pears and grapes are their favourites, but they will damage other fruits too.
All workers die in early fall, usually after the first frost. Queens hide and overwinter in cracks and crevices, under piles of wood, or in any other suitable hiding place.
Yellowjacket numbers can be effectively reduced by using traps. We suggest starting to trap in the spring as queens emerge. Each queen captured means one less colony in the summer. Use our catchy Yellowjacket & Wasp trap to catch these pesky insects. You will not regret it!
