Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peanut Great Yellow Jacket Wasp Trap!!
This product is easy to use and really traps Yellow Jacket wasps fast! At first I did not think this would work; however, I was totally mistaken! I filled the bag with water, hung in my front yard, and the wasps just filled the bag. I like that I can just trash the bag once they are full and hang a new one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BuzzKill Good Product, but it may depend on what food sources are around
We are on our third bag. For the bags, all I do is cut around the circle then pull up the yellow plastic, fill with warm to hot water from the tap up to the line. You can start to smell it pretty quickly. We bought quite a few as home depot had a bulk discount. I am changing them every few weeks, but should probably change them sooner (probably every two weeks).
First bag - after a week, no yellow jackets. They seemed quite happy to fly on by. In the second week, it started to capture them and I'd say that after 3 weeks we caught about 30.
Second bag - caught a few on the first day, and a small number after that, there would have been about 20 caught after 3 weeks.
Third bag - jackpot. I had about 6 buzzing around me as I carried to the tree where I hung it. After 24hrs there are over 100 in there (it was hung out on Aug 15th, writing this review Aug 16th).
I am located near Boulder Colorado (I noticed that one other reviewer was also in Colorado).
I don't know if there was a slight change in the bait formula in this bag, or whether whatever they were eating prior to now is gone, but I can understand the mixed reviews and ratings, as my experience over the last ~6 weeks has gone from "it's ok" to "wow".
My advice is that if you aren't having success, and have a few bags, then give it a few weeks between bags and hopefully you will see the results I have seen. The picture shows the latest bag, which has been out for 24hrs.

I followed instructions to the letter and hung it 3 weeks ago. There have been no yellow jackets or any kind of wasp attracted to it. I am returning it to your store and will shop for similar products elsewhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by zman66 This trap works
I have 2 rescue traps. One is the plastic rescue one with the cotton ball bait, the other, this disposable trap. I bought these on the same day, hung them on the same day and here are the results. Plastic cotton ball one. Zero yellow jackets trapped. Disposable yellow jacket trap, I can't count that high. Literally hundreds in this trap. I bet this trap brings in 15-20 a day. I thought I had a small problem with yellow jackets, but didn't realize I had 100's around my house. I don't know how far yellow jackets travel, but I am clearly capturing my fair share in the neighborhood. Never have I had more than maybe 15 in the old plastic cotton ball one, and I thought those worked well. Clearly a superior product with what I think is a much stronger attractant.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tom USELESS PRODUCT
I have never found any product or service completely useless, but this product does absolutely nothing. I bought one trap and hung up in back yard and for 4 days did not attract any yellow jackets (although there are numerous yellow jackets in the back yard). I took it back to Home Depot for a refund. I believed it was a bad batch or outdated product; so again I purchased another trap from a new unopened case of traps and likewise hung it up in the back yard and over 4 days did not attract any yellow jackets. THIS IS A COMPLETELY USELESS PRODUCT.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Myself Waste of money
Hung this in two different locations near where yellow jackets were emerging from under my siding. After the first week there were zero yellow jackets in the trap. After two weeks there was one. Waste of $5 dollars.

Note, the instructions direct you to fill with water. The pictographs show the water coming from a kettle, I'm thinking they meant hot water. I used hot water. 1 week no YJ. The Rescue reusable unit is bagging 20 a day just 30 feet away.

I followed the directions to set it up. It looks just like the picture. The yellow jackets are attracted to it. I am watching them crawl in and back out the same way! None are getting trapped.
