your home or business is by using a bait station. This is a great method to use the nest can’t
be located for a direct drench treatment. We first recommend testing a few types of
bait before using the stations. Recommended food baits include raw chicken pieces, raw
fish, canned tuna, or cat food. Raw chicken pieces or tuna tend to work the best. Also
test using a sweet bait like jelly. Whatever bait the wasps go for, this will be the bait
to use in your stations. The second step is mixing the bait you have
chosen with an insecticide labeled for Yellow Jacket Wasps. You only need a small amount
insecticide for the bait to be effective. Mix a quarter teaspoon of insecticide per
12 ounces of bait thoroughly in the station. The third step is to hang the stations outside
your home five to six feet off the ground. Space the stations about 50 feet apart to
cover as much of your property as possible. Keep the stations out of reach of children,
but in areas where the wasps can access them. A good place to hang the stations are on tree
limbs. The fourth and final step is to check the
bait stations every few days to see if the bait has been consumed or if the the bait
is rancid. Replace the bait as needed until the yellow jacket population is under control. And it’s that easy with the expert help
