I posted earlier in the season about the new Yellow Jacket Trap from Raid - I thought a follow up might be nice since the apples falling off trees everywhere right now are attracting them by the dozens.
Yesterday morning I was picking up apples off the ground and noticed Yellow Jackets for the first time this season - so I wondered if my trap had stopped working. I checked it and it was full!
This picture is not very good - but those dark things floating in there are dead yellow jackets!
So I hung a new trap (I kept the old one up for now) in a new area of the tree.
And now, just 24 hours later it is over half full and I am not noticing any more yellow jackets on the apples and in the yard.
This product is awesome if you hate bees and are scared of stings like I am. It only works on yellow jackets - it attracts them and they crawl inside and can't get out and drown. It is all natural and so much less scary for me to use than sprays.
