How to Make a Cheap and Easy Wasp Trap

How to Make a Cheap and Easy Wasp Trap

The Garden Grapevine shows us how to turn a plastic soda bottle into a wasp trap. Chances are you have everything you need to make one! Oh, and it'll trap other flying insects too--but no mosquitoes. 

What you'll need to make one:

  • 1 plastic soda bottle, either 2 or 3 liter
  • wire or string to hang the trap
  • cotton balls or 1" x 1" pieces of sponge
  • a few drops of fruit flavored soda, but I'm guessing Kookaid would work too
  • scissors
  • nail or punch

To read the entire tute, head on over to this page on The Garden Grapevine.
