Despite the mixed reviews by others here, I took the chance and bought it. It didn't catch anything the 1st 2 days, but then out of nowhere the wasps were checking in. I now call it "The Hotel California". Im sold !

I was on the verge of an epidemic I had a slew of Yellowjackets between my siding and stucco. I could not get to them so i bought this product and within two days I caught over 75 bees, and I was then able to stucco the gap where they were making their nest. Best decision that I have made this summer

Yellow jackets started to swarm as I placed the trap under a tree. Within two days a quarter of the top chamber was filled. Four days, half of the top chamber filled and they're still coming! Six days is shown in the picture. We are going to place another trap in the yard since the first is working so well.

First off, I read reviews for most products I purchase now a days.
I saw this trap got mixed reviews on the website.
I thought I'd still give it a try and I'm glad I did.
I am blown away by how many yellow jackets it catches.
I just cleaned it out this morning and by late afternoon there's already 40 yellow jackets inside. Once they fly in, they can't get out and once they hit the water (mixed with dish soap) they can't fly.
I can't say more for this products effectiveness. I can't imagine why anyone would give it a poor review.
Quality seems high, easy to assemble and add attractant.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by dsabrae Didn't do a thing for me, But the bees got a real kick out of my attempts to trap them!
I purchased this trap to deal with the abundance of paper wasps I have on my property. After several weeks of them ignoring this trap, all I can guess is the included bait isn't at all effective for paper wasps. I had initial purchased a refill with the trap so I've tried it in multiple locations now and watch the wasps floor right on by not paying any attention to the trap at all. It does catch ha number of Gnats, some tiny spiders and various flying things but not a single bee for me of any kind. Bumbles laugh, the paper wasps give it the finger hornets feel insulted. Perhaps this is useful for yellowjackets of which I have none to test with but it did trap some of my money when i purchased it. A little google sleuthing seems to indicate some bees are attracted to decaying meat and others to fermenting fruit. If I'm feeling masochistic I might try this try with some apple juice as bait and see if that makes a difference but I suspect this trap is just not effective in the south east.

Since day 1 it was catching wasps and didn't stip until the liquid dried up. Onto buying another and more refills.
I wish I could upload an image, too many wasps in the container to count.

Hung it up near a wasp nest for 2 weeks. Not one wasp in the trap!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JD Very Impressed with how fast it worked!
I was skeptical to purchase this product from the low rated reviews, however after setting it up (exactly per the instructions), it trapped 12 bees/wasps the first day, an additional 10 the following day, and after having it up for one week, this puppy was full (I'm guessing 50-70).
As a professional process engineering manager who deeply understands the importance of following instructions to a T, I can only assume the folks who've rated this product low or have had bad results are either A.) not following the instructions, B.) not following the order of instructions, or C.) not placing the device on the correct location.
I never write reviews, but thought customers and the manufacturer deserved an honest review.
