    Wasps

    Decided to do my bit in the wasp battle.

    Pretty easy online test and a few $ registration fee to become accredited. Then can purchase everything that is needed.

    This bait proved to be very successful when trailed in the Able Tasman 2 years ago with +90% of wasps wiped out in the trial areas.

    I used it last year at our batch which has always had a wasp problem and was blown away with the results...no wasps!!

    Being a protein based bait it is safe for use around bees. Now is the time with wasps in their protein phase.

    All the information you need can be found here

    Pretty sure that you don't have to be signed off to use the stuff, just to buy it. There are tramping groups and mountain bike clubs who are putting it out in the top of the south, without having to make all their members jump through hoops

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Pretty sure it is just an online quiz that they likely tell you the answers to. Hardly much of a hoop. Just go do it, it would probably take less time they writing a rant on this forum....

    At work we use some feno -- phenom ---- phenum ----liquid stuff in feeders that attract the femail wasps. Its made a difference to wasp numbers and must be available without bullshit. The best time to use it is in spring, but the guy who is our wasp killer says this time of year he gets workers.

    It is real easy !!! Just watch a video and answer a few questions.

    Its amazing stuff, there was a big nest in my folks woodpile and recently there has been heaps of the little yellow and black buggers hanging out around the fish filleting bench.

    Figured they were on protein so put up 1 bait station and 3 days later there are NO wasps flying into or out off the wood pile !!

    Does it also work for paper wasps?
