Victor® Poison Free® Yellow Jacket & Flying Insect Reusable Trap 1qt. - 6 Traps

Control yellow jackets, flies, and fruit flies with the Victor® Poison Free® Yellow Jacket & Flying Insect Trap 1qt. Ideal to use for picnics, camping, and cookouts, this trap is easy-to-use and reusable. Bait contains carbohydrates and protein, not hazardous sprays or aerosols and is great for use in all geographic regions.

Directions for Use:

CAUTION: Assemble the trap inside and wash hands before going outside to hang the trap. The attractant is very powerful. Yellow jackets can sting and cause allergic reactions in some people.

  1. Open trap.
  2. Remove bait packet.
  3. Open and empty bait into the jar.
  4. Add 2/3 cup of water to bait or add water to Fill Line.
  5. Swirl water and bait together.
  6. Hang trap away from human or pet activity. If trap will be used during an outdoor activity where food is present, place traps out at least an hour before food is brought outside.
  7. As trap fill, add water to keep yellow jackets submerged.
  8. Once the trap is full, discard in your normal trash collection.

Tips:

  • During peak yellow jacket season the trap is full if yellow jackets enter holes and leave again. This means that the trap surface is entirely covered with insects.
  • In the early part of the season (spring) and later (fall), you may want to check the trap by carefully opening the top and looking inside the trap to determine if the trap is full. If you choose to check the trap, do so in the very early morning or in the evening when yellow jackets are less active.
  • Once the trap is full, discard in your normal trash collection.

Note:

  • The attractant will last about a week during normal temperatures. Extremely hot weather will cause the attractant to evaporate quicker.
  • The trap is not intended to be reused; however, if the surface of the inner board is still sticky and not full with insects, you may re-bait the trap with Safer® Brand Yellow Jacket Attractant available from your retailer. Re-bait inside and follow the precautions outlined above.

Great trap for yellow jackets!! By Diz

We have tried various types of traps, using various types of bait and have discovered that your trap seems to work the best at catching the queens. It all started when we set one of the traps a few feet from where they were getting into an old house, and have caught 25 of them and hundreds of others. Works great on hornets also. Then my brother set one on the ground near an apple tree, and within an hour we had two queens and several others. Thanks for an excellent trap for yellow jackets!!

I Love this Trap! By
My mother bought 3 different traps hoping @ least one would work, this one worked the fastest by far. She has had it for almost a week and it was so full there was no longer any fluid & had to add more water. I live in Minnesota & it is now getting cooler so the wasps & yellow jackets are getting more aggressive but there are fewer (so I thought). I was only seeing about 6 around my deck & less at a time so, I didn't expect to get many. The 1st day with in 3 hours of having it up there were 8 wasps & yellow jackets by 24 hours there are now 19 and it's been cold and drizzling. This stuff really does work!

I find it does catch hornets and wasps, but they got back out thru the holes.

Excellent trap if you have a yellow jacket or black wasp problem. Fill it half full with apple juice, dispose of dead yellow jackets every 2 or 3 days, clean and refill.

I use this in my yard in Anchorage. I put in about 2-3 inches of water and some salmon scrap. In the last two days I must have caught 100-200 bees. I love this trap, but the plastic is cheap and I had one crack once. I have reused this one for a few years. I try lots of meats, but salmon is the killer up here, at least that seems to draw the yellow jackets like crazy.

All About

All About Wasps, Hornets and Flying Insects that Poison Free® Yellow Jacket & Flying Insect Trap Controls

Wasps, yellow jackets and hornets can be found throughout North America in meadows, orchards, woodlands, playgrounds, cemeteries, and urban and suburban backyards. They vary in their nesting preferences.  Although they all chew wood pulp to build their nests, yellow jackets generally locate their nests below the ground surface while hornets and other wasps build their large nests up in the trees.  Giant hornets will also build their nests in attics or house walls.

Control Options

Controlling Wasps and Hornets in Your Yard and Garden

Natural & Organic Controls

What?

Yellow jacket/Wasp traps and wasp and hornet aerosols containing pyrethrin, d-limonene, palmarosa oil or mint oil appear to be the most effective control methods for these insects.

How?

Pesticide-free traps contain food attractants instead of harmful chemicals.

These traps should be placed along the borders of your lawn. When checking on them, be very careful not to get stung. Carefully read and follow all instructions completely for safe and effective trap usage.A non-poisonous aerosol spray that contains mint oil can be a very effective instant spot control product - and it has a pleasant mint scent!

Pyrethrin, d-limonene, and/or palmarosa oil sprays can also be used for instant spot control. In addition, they can be used to drench the nest or hive.

If you are attempting to spray a nest of wasps, be sure to wear a bee veil and very protective clothing which is closed at the cuff of pants and sleeves as well as the collar and belt areas so wasps cannot crawl under your clothes and sting you.

Spray from approximately 10-15 feet away or as far away as you can manage based on the position of the nest. Spray with the wind at your back. Carefully read and follow all instructions completely for safe and effective application.

When?

Once a trap is set up, it will take about 24 hours to fully lure wasps & yellow jackets, so plan ahead if you're having a backyard party or outdoor event.

When treating a full nest, spray aerosol solutions after dusk or before dawn since these insects are dormant at night.

Why Choose a Natural Solution?

Natural solutions break down quickly to their natural elements. They are preferable to chemical pesticides that leave residuals where they are sprayed causing long-term detrimental effects on the environment.

 

Natural Predators

What?

Birds and other insects eat wasps and hornets, helping to control their populations.

How?

Birds that eat both insects and birdseed may be able to be attracted to your yard through the use of birdfeeders.

When?

Place bird feeders in the yard at any time throughout the year, although the main time for attracting birds in hopes they will also go after the wasps and hornets would be during the late spring and summer when these insects emerge and are active.

 

Environmental Controls

What?

Secured window screens and doors, tightly lidded garbage cans, and well-maintained orchards are all important in controlling wasps, whether they are yellow jackets, hornets or other types of wasps. Cold weather is a natural environmental control in itself, killing off the colony and possibly even the queen.

How?

Check window screens and doors to make sure they are secure so wasps will not be able to invade your home. Once inside the home, they can enter the walls or attic and either overwinter or build their nests depending on the time of year.

Garbage cans without lids firmly attached can be a huge source of attraction for yellow jackets. Make sure that your garbage cans are firmly covered. Remove any fruits that have fallen from your fruit trees, being very careful not to step in or disturb any yellow jacket nests in the ground.

When?

Check windows, screens and doors in the spring and fall to check for nests or for overwintering female wasps. Every time you open and close your garbage can, make sure you have placed the lid on the can very firmly. Pick up fruit when you find it on the ground under your fruit trees in your yard or orchard.

FAQs

FAQs About Wasps and Hornets

 

Q: What’s the difference between a yellow jacket and a wasp?

A: Both are a type of social wasp, meaning they live in a colony.  Yellow jackets are a group within the species social wasps. When we think of the term “wasp,” we are often thinking about the paper wasp, another type of social wasp.

Yellow jackets, incidently, are the more vicious of the two types, and are commonly found at picnics, campgrounds, and garbage cans at the end of summer in search of foods and sweets to substitute for their dwindling natural prey.

 

Q: How do we get rid yellow jackets in our yard? Our son's birthday party is next week.

A: Wasp and Hornet Sprays containing pyrethrins may be of help.  Another option that can be effective in controlling these stinging pests are yellowjacket traps. They come in several styles, but basically contain a food-type bait that will attract the yellowjackets and when they enter the trap's container, they become trapped inside.
