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 went to the Depot looking for that aerosol wasp killer stuff that would shoot a stream 30 feet. I didn't find any of that but I found this product and thought I'd give it a try. Since I work from home and my office window looks out onto our front porch, I had been watching multiple wasps flying around lately. Then one found its way into our house and freaked out my teenage daughter. After I bravely hunted it down and killed it, off we went to the Depot (incidentally, we also have a Lowe's in our town, and it is closer than the HD, but Lowe's NEVER has what I need!)
I followed the instructions exactly, including the placement of the device. The very next day the Hotel California (good description from another reviewer!) had trapped about 10-12 of the nuisance insects in the lower chamber. Not sure why the upper chamber didn't catch any.
As another reviewer noted, I must also guess that the unsuccessful reviewers didn't follow the explicit instructions regarding placement and timing of placement (early morning or later in the day).
One other note, I started the set-up in the house but the lower chamber attractant has a strong odor so I quickly went out to the garage with it. I would suggest DO NOT OPEN THE CHEMICALS INDOORS!

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.

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.

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

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by boss Does not attract bees! I have it hanging for a week now and yellow jacket and wasp all over it but none have gone in? Simply does not work!
Do not recommend this product. I have it handing and is exposed to many wasp & yellow jackets and none will enter?

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.
