Sounds very mysterious and exciting
I believe they showed a similar method on "Countryfile" last Sunday the purpose being to make a survey of the types of Wappy using your garden. After you've captured a few your supposed to pass them through a strainer to separate the waps from the liquid and then send the "catch" off to someone who cares about these kind of things. There was an address supplied but I've forgotten it.Placido wrote:This is a DIY project which I was told about toady at some length -
Wasp Trap: take one 2 litre plastic bokkle (HB now happily comes in 2 litres ), carefully cut it through about 3/4 of the way up - if you're not allowed to use sharp instruments ask your parents or warden to help you.
Note: If you wish you can bodge a couple of holes in the top of the 3.4 part of the vessel, string it and hang it up . Nice and tidy.
Invert the top quarter of said bokkle (that's the part with the neck) and shove it upside down into the remaining 3/4 of the bokkle, ensuring a tight fit. The cap is not required.
Pour a generous amount of HB, or another wasp attractant but HB works best, down through the funnel but not to the top.
Place said contraption in a suitably waspie-type location and wait to be amazed.
How the wasps are removed from the trap was not discussed .
Never Found To Fail.
Extra supplies (including bokkle) are readily available from all major and minor outlets or you can get me on my mobile.
