We can't say that we're so one with nature that wasps don't bother us — stinging or not, the buzzing and flying around is enough to drive anyone crazy — but chemicals and traps bug us even more. Even removal gives us a pang, after the insects have worked so hard.
The Waspinator 2 prevents wasps from even setting foot in the area by working as a decoy, sending the message to home-hunters that the spot is already taken. It does this with its color, shape and placement (hanging under an eave, or other overhang), and not with any coating or chemical.
It's not beautiful, but luckily wasps are involved in nest building only a few months out of the year, albeit the spring and early summer ones that we're most likely to want to spend outside, looking at the thing. We bet we could DIY a prettier one (or just use an old, uninhabited one — has anyone tried this?).
We're curious — but almost afraid — of what the Waspinator 1 did.
