The time-honored way these work is that the wasp (or hornet, yellowjacket, or fly) is enticed by any sweet liquid to fly up into the jar through the hole in the base. Once inside, the bug will invariably drown. When full, you simply pull out the top stopper and empty the Trap. Hang it from any convenient branch, nail or hook; it requires no maintenance whatsoever, except an occasional look-see and cleaning. Leave outdoors all the time, except if freezing.

These are still made in modern forms today, but ours are exact replicas of an antique Victorian wasp trap which we came across years ago during trip through the Lake District in England - hand made now for us in Mexico by a small, custom glass blowing firm we discovered. They have a great deal of style, and are very decorative as well as functional.

Each is about 5-1/2" tall and 4" wide, and each comes with its wire hook and a genuine cork stopper. Some variation in size should be expected.

I'm Pleased

These babies work. I've bated them with the same sugar water I used in my hummingbird feeders and snagged wasps/yellow jackets by the dozen.

I have used the plastic traps from Tractor supply with great results but they are not the prettiest things to look at. So when I came across these I thought I would give it a try. I have had it out for a week now with sprite in it and not a single fly or wasp. I have tried three different spots on the front porch with no luck. Right now it is hanging within a foot of a yellow jacket nest and no yellow jackets in my trap. Cool to look at but worthless if you want to catch anything.

Thank you for your review on the Victorian Wasp Traps. We’re sorry to hear that you’re having trouble with them. We spoke to our technician and he has suggested a mixture of vinegar, salt, and sugar water. This will attract the wasps, but not the bees. You may also try different mixtures of honey and water. We found that this works quite well in capturing wasps.

They Sell These In Mexico
Reviewed By:   (Berkeley, CA) 
I purchased 3 of these expecting them to be elegant enough to hang inside during the months we have wasp problems. They're not really up to that and, growing up in San Diego, I've seen and used similar hand blown Mexican glass. Unique, somewhat, Yes. Cost, Over The Top. Would return but shipping these heavy things back is hardly/not worth it. I'll have to gift them or find a place outdoors and do all the maintenance necessary to prep, clean and keep the good insects out, like bees. GW usually does much better and is fairer with price.

Better Than Sticky Traps
Reviewed By:   (Lufkin, TX) 
This wasp trap looks so much better than the plastic models that you see. My mother-in-law always is getting her hair stuck in the sticky traps, so now she won't have to.

This product works ... I purchased the wasp traps for a house located near a river. The traps are simple to use...a quality product that is so effective. I recommend the wasp traps for any area affected by the stinging insects!
