    No it doesnt. I think the main problem with paper wasps is they only hunt live pray so wont take bait. Fly spray bro

    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 !!

    Yep i payed that last year and this year was just able to buy the bait. So i presume that is a one off payment that will last indefinitely.. i hope so

    Done and paid! Expected wait time for rego is one day ! I'm purchasing the $ 89 pack for a start and will give it a try around our pad first ..then see a couple of other owners to get some around theirs ...Start small and think big ...will approach shop owners and perminate residence about running out some lines over at the wharf and up the pylon track up the back to try and thin the bloody wasps out!

    Plenty of areas the are easy to access and work bait stations just need a couple of people montouring them during the week!

    @stingray good on you !! The turn around time from paying and delivery of the bait is surprisingly fast so you should have it sorted in no time.

    Usually the wasps are flying less than 500m from their nest so you should be able to reach a reasonable area with a just a few stations.

    Get stuck into em !!

    Might save a few Brachial arteries at the filleting bench

    Did exactly this last night up at my shed, was a decent fist and a half sized nest. Wall of the shed was pretty warm.

    Yeah this nest was partially obscured and they kept coming out longer after the first strike, so the spray and walk away technique would have been ineffective

    Sure as hell will...let the old bloke know the plan ...he was super stoked ...he is keen as hell to do mid week trips to keep the bait checked and cleaned up and put the word round the locals for me! I think we have found something to bring us together again as well a common goal to start the slow road of making fishing with kids and off the rock a lot more pleasant!

    Vespex is death to german and common wasps, works fast when you can get them feeding on it. Areas of high wasp infestations I treated last season you struggle to see any now. Best thing since sliced bread.
