    Not really sure, possibly. Was back in there again today they are all crack willow and the leaves are very sticky. The place is literally buzzing. thousands of bees all over the leaves ! Only wasps i saw were paper wasps hunting insects !

    Ok so ...the wasps love the stuff ( vespexs) but are distracted but other fishy smells , like frames etc ...they prefer it to burley though and we're harvesting it over phillie and Mack ..harvesting it rolling up we balls and hauling it away ..VC was a clever barstard and rubbed our set up with a fish skin and set the game alive ...the only problem was the bait trays are very light and wind blows them out of the trap do we tapped ours down.. into the trap ...will report back hopefully next weekend no wasps see how it goes

    The few we seen around base camp today certainly seemed a bit dozy on it.

    I put the vespex out on sunday am and the wasp numbers are already down by a huge margin.
    Now to find a product that does the same for Sandflies

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    put in intravenous line draw some blood and mix with some of your vespex and leave in a tray for sandflies and get back to us on how it works .just remember to remove intravenous line if it works ok you could draw more blood and sell to forum members for sandfly relief and make some money on the side.
