W·H·Y Trap for Wasps, Hornets & Yellowjackets
What it catches
The RESCUE! WHY Trap catches all species of wasps found in New Zealand.
How it works
The WHY Trap has a top chamber and a bottom chamber. The top chamber is baited with two attractants -- one of which is a solid contained in a vial, and the other a liquid mixed with water. The bottom chamber is baited with a liquid attractant poured onto a cotton pad. Wasps have two ways to enter: either through the top cap, or through the holes in the bottom cap.

Where it's used?
The RESCUE! WHY Trap can be used outdoors wherever there is a wasp problem. We recommend the trap be placed at least 20 feet away from an outdoor activity area, such as a patio or deck. Generally speaking, the WHY Trap will capture more paper wasps near a house structure, and more German wasps near a natural setting of bushes and trees.
When it's used?
The RESCUE! W*H*Y Trap can be used in early spring when the queen wasps emerge from overwintering to look for new nest sites. It can also be used throughout the summer until autumn to capture all other foraging wasps
