Catch The Queen: Safely and Naturally Trap Wasps, Hornets and Yellowjackets!

Blaire Benson

Worried about uninvited guests this summer? Act now to minimize the threat of yellowjackets all summer long. Yellowjacket colonies die completely each year, except for the queen. In the first warm days of spring, the queen comes out of dormancy and begins to feed and search for a next location for her new colony.

By trapping the queen now, you can prevent the founding of the entire colony, and therefore, minimize this pesky problem. To catch this window of opportunity, you need to place a trap before the queens have found their colonies. Even a few days can make a difference, so don’t delay!

The easiest and most effective way to ensure that you trap the queen is placing a RESCUE! W.H.Y. Trap within 20 feet of your outdoor activity area. This will safely and naturally trap the 'bad guys' (20 species of wasps, hornets and yellowjackets) through fall without harming the beneficial honeybees; the W.H.Y. Trap takes out all the guesswork.

We’re also fans of RESCUE! Disposable Yellowjacket Trap for picnics and camping trips. Featuring the same attractant but in a convenient disposable bag. You just add water. Take the time to hang up a trap today and enjoy your summer BBQ in peace!
