Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brandon Best I have used. Extremely effective
I actually purchased these exact traps from another retailer and am posting this only beause I happened upon these reviews.
I live in Manitoba and wasp season is heavy upon us now. I put two of these traps out 3 days ago, following the instructions, although I am sure I could get away with normal nectar in there too. It likely depends on what else is in the area as an attractant. Anyway, I put one near 3 hummingbird feeders they were hanging around and then another by our pool in the backyard. The following evening I had to bring them both in and clean them out since the carnage within them rendered them ineffective for anything but simply trapping the wasps (and hornets too). A homemade trap with a 2 liter pop bottle also works but no where near as well as this gem. Once they are in the trap, getting out would be very difficult. I suspect I will be cleaning them again this evening.
I am definitely purchasing more when I cross-border this weekend.

I used all 6 and used different ingredients in each, including recipe from box. Refilled each one time. Did not catch 1 wasp or yellow jacket even though they were flying around them.

I had one like this a couple of years ago until I forgot to put it up. A coyote drug it off. I got these yesterday and set out 4 today. With in 3 hours I have caught close to 100 yellow jackets.
I just use 1 spoon of canned cat food. Works great!!

We have tried most of the other traps on the market over the years and none of them worked at all for us.
We have unsucessfully battled large numbers of aggressive Red Wasps for several years around our house & garden. I saw these online and after researching them decided to give them a try. I am so glad I did. They have helped so much. Yesterday alone I emptied over 2 dozen red wasps out of the traps. We are using 6 of them & baiting them with concord grape juice & a small piece of dog food in each. If you have a problem with wasps, I highly recommend these.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by skrlr Best wasp/fly trap on the market
If you have a problem with wasps, bees, flies, this product is for you. We lie along a creek and are plagued by horse flies, wasps, and just plain flies. I fill the trap with apple juice, just a little in the bottom, and the flies and wasps go right in. Then I empty it out in the pond and the fish have a feast. This is the best wasp/fly trap I have every found. And since I can see thru it, I know when to empty and put in new liquid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Edie1 This is the BEST trap ever
We have one of these and it works so well we just bought a pack of 6. It is easy to fill, empty and refill. Washes easy and is sturdy. We will be putting on on the side of the house and two near the patio and holding extras to put where needed. We are over run by yellow jackets and they really love the trap..Course they can't get out and that makes me happy. It also traps red wasps. I am thrilled to find something that works so well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Roberto Unfortunately, it's a great BEE catcher
I had high hopes for this product but I've managed to catch far more bees than wasps or yellow jackets.
Knowing the benefits that bees bring us and that their population is on the decline, the last product I want to use is a bee catcher.
I've experimented with placement in different locations and using different food and juices to attract only wasps and yellow jackets, but the bees keep coming.
This product may work well in areas that are mostly infested by yellow jackets and wasps, but if you have bees, I would recommend using other traps that have attractants that are targeted for yellow jackets and wasps.
