W·H·Y Trap for Wasps, Hornets & Yellowjackets
The W·H·Y® Trap has a top chamber and a bottom chamber. The top chamber is baited with two attractants -- one of which is a solid contained in a vial, and the other a liquid mixed with water. The bottom chamber is baited with a liquid attractant poured onto a cotton pad. Wasps, hornets and yellowjackets have two ways to enter: either through the top cap, or through the holes in the bottom cap.
Double-chambered design restricts insects from escaping
Durable construction holds up for multiple seasons
Attractant will not lure beneﬁcial honeybees
Catches workers from summer through fall
Catches queens in spring before they build nests
First and only trap to capture Paper Wasps, Bald-faced Hornets and European Hornets
Two-week attractant kit included
No extra food bait required
Once inside the trap, the insects cannot ﬂy out and die either by drowning (top chamber) or dehydration (bottom chamber).
Where and How To Use
The RESCUE!® W·H·Y® Trap can be used outdoors wherever there is a paper wasp, hornet or yellowjacket problem. We recommend the trap be placed at least 20 feet away from an outdoor activity area, such as a patio or deck. Generally speaking, the W·H·Y® Trap will capture more paper wasps near a house structure, and more hornets and yellowjackets near a natural setting of bushes and trees. It can be highly effective to place multiple traps around the perimeter of a yard or area where insects are entering. The trap should also be placed at least 20 feet away from a known yellowjacket nest.
The RESCUE!® W·H·Y® Trap can be used in early spring when the queen paper wasps, hornets and yellowjackets emerge from overwintering to look for new nest sites. It can also be used throughout the summer and fall to capture foraging wasp, hornet and yellowjacket workers.
What People Are Saying
This trap is AWESOME! I can't believe how many wasps it catches. They are lining up to get in and this thing is already full. No more stalking my yard with cans of spray, this trap is catching them ALL. Thank You!
I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful product! I've been waiting for something like this for over several years. I purchased four of these due to our wasp problem and boy do they work! They fill up with paper wasps. …Well thanks again!
I have been using both the RESCUE! Yellowjacket and W·H·Y Traps for a little over two years in Western PA. My garden is full of and surrounded by choice nesting spots. These traps (6 of them now set around the perimeter of the tilled area) have been a total success story. They DO get the queens early and later on literally hundreds of plain old nasty workers. Thanks for developing this product line. It's super.
