Wasps! Here's a way to trap them.

It's that time of year, wasps are everywhere! We used this recipe last summer after trying many different concoctions, this one was amazing! Wasps were attracted immediately and it trapped a lot. Plus it's easy enough to throw away and start a new one.

You need:
1/2 cup Water
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1 banana peel
1 empty 2 liter pop bottle

-boil water and add sugar, stir until dissolved
-cut the top off the pop bottle so you have a funnel (you need the whole thing so don't wreck the bottle!)
-put the sugar water, vinegar and banana peel in the bottom of the pop bottle and put the top back on upside down. you want the spout facing down to the bottom of the bottle (but not touching the liquid)
-poke holes and tie it shut or use duct tape and then hang your new trap from a tree or place it somewhere out of reach of your kids
