Read the instructions to get results! By Paris R.

Put it up on Friday. Checked out on Sunday - no yellow jacket activity at the nest! Reading the instructions might be key. Sacrificed 1/2 cup of frozen Apple juice concentrate (don't add water!) was probably the key for me. Knowing that I can reuse it without buying "bait" is a bonus.

don't waste your money By bummed

Attracts a ton of yellow jackets. Unfortunately they can't figure out how to get in! Terrible design.

This is worth the $10 this thing can catch a good 50 - 100 hornets, yellow jackets ect before you have to change the atractive sent. This is awsome especially if you don't know where the hive is. The only bad thing is if the sent gets on you it smells really bad and may take a day or so to get it off.

Q.Will this trap attract wasps, yellow jackets and hornets without harming bees?yHzHw

This trap is designed to attract only yellow jackets, hornets, and wasps, not bees.

Q.Will this trap attract wasps, yellow jackets and hornets without attracting and killing bees?

This product is not attractive to bees.

Q.Can this be hung near hummingbird feeders? Yellow jackets are currently swarming these feeders. Any negative impact to hummers? Will the hummers drink from this or try to enter? Is it the liquid that kills the yellow jackets or that they get trapped inside?

We recommend hanging this product away from hummingbird feeders so Yellow Jackets are drawn away from the area. This product is designed to attract only Yellow Jackets and Wasps. Hummingbirds will not fit inside this trap.

All About

All About Wasps and Hornets Safer® Brand Deluxe Yellow Jacket Wasp Trap Controls

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

Control Options

Controlling Wasps and Hornets in Your Yard and Garden


Wasp Control / Hornet Control


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.


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 to 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.


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.


Hornet & Wasp Predators


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


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


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.


Wasp & Hornet Environmental Controls


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.


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.


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 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 the more vicious of the two types, and are found at picnics, campgrounds and trash cans at the end of summer searching for food and sweets to replace their waning natural prey.

Check out the Guide to Stinging Insects for more details.


Q: We seem to have a lot of yellow jackets in the yard right now, and our son's birthday party is in two weeks. What can we do to get rid of them?

A: Wasp and Hornet Sprays containing pyrethrins may help. Another effective option to controll these pests are yellow jacket traps. They come in several styles, and contain a food-type bait that will attract the yellowjackets and trap them inside when they enter the trap's container.
