    Ever try one of those fake wasp nests? We had nests at our cottage and put one these up and haven’t seen another nest. http://www.leevalley.com/en/garden/page.aspx?p=56120&cat=2,40725,45454

    Not sure if it will help with your situation, but I thought I’d mention it.

      The Waspinator. Nice. I might give that a try next year.

      In the meantime, I’m taking other measures to give the Green Earth trap a better chance at succeeding. I’m not dumping it just yet. I’m moving it to a sunnier spot so the sun can heat up the lure inside and maybe catch the attention of the wasps better.

      The fruit juice is still a bad idea, but maybe I’m just not using it right.

    I have the exact same trap, I put half a can of Dole mango juice every week and the trap catch at least 50 wasp a week.

    Our most successful wasp bait has been cheap beer. More wasps drowned it it than in any of the fruit juices we tried. And with no drowned bees.
