About this item
So far only single hornet trap and glass traps have been used. Both successfully trapped wasps which are a real problem in my garden - destroyed a honey bee colony last year. I recognise that wasps have their uses (killing aphids etc ) but they arrive here at the end of July in huge numbers.
Last year most of the bees in 3 hives of mine ware taken by Asian Hornets so i bought these traps and in 6 traps i've cought about 100 hornets (incl. queens) already this year so i've just ordered 6 more.
I ordered the jar and trap, but found that they do not fit together. Therefore, totally useless as far as I am concerned.
Catching plenty of flies, no wasps yet ++++++++
Excellent service, the traps arrived in the post really quickly, but with no instructions. Read the details carefully before you buy, because the HD 453 that fits onto a jar, only fits a 1kg jar, which I do not have. It would be more useful in the UK if it fitted the standard British 1lb jars. Since the postage cost more than the traps, I am not going to order one jar alone and it does not fit any jars that I already have. The HD 457 that fits onto a bottle may well work, but it looks as though it would be too easy for creatures to get out, with the shape of the bottle channelling them back towards the exit. I think I will stick to cutting the top off the bottle, inverting it into the bottle and sticking together with Duct tape.
