We love dining outside when the weather permits, but confess that we really hate the bugs that often spoil the party during the summer months. With friends who are especially sensitive to wasp stings, we've witnessed the frantic dash indoors too many times to count. Imagine our happiness then when we discovered these attractive and eco-friendly wasp catchers online...
Made of recycled glass and dependent on sugar water rather than chemicals, these wasp catchers from Gaiam
are an attractive solution to an ugly problem. We think the colored glass beehives would add a lovely splash to any garden or balcony even without the added benefit of trapping wasps and yellow jackets. At only $13 each, you can afford one in every color, though a smaller yard or patio should only require one of these traps.
Does anyone have any experience with these beehive-shaped traps or other eco-friendly ways to rid a yard of wasps?
