How To Make a Wasp Trap

Step 1: Cut the neck off a plastic pop bottle.

Step 2: Remove the bottle cap and flip the neck upside down and place it in the bottle opening that you just cut.

Step 3: Tape together using packing tape or duct tape.

Step 4: Bait the trap. sugar and water, water and vinegar, beer, soda, even laundry detergent. Adding petroleum jelly or cooking oil along the steep edges of the trap can cause them to lose their footing and fall into the hole.

Step 5: Hang the trap by either taping a string to it, or affixing a screw that you can use to hang.
