Wasp Control Waspinator
Quantity in Basket:None
The Original Waspinator mimics an enemy nest. Wasps seem to avoid the area where the Waspinator is displayed, intimidated by what they think is an actual nest.
"Many social wasp species are aggressive and will defend a territory around their nests. The size of the territory will vary depending on the species and the size of the colony. Some paper wasps species will respond to movement 20 feet away. If a member of another wasp colony approaches that wasp will be chased away."

The Original Waspinator works without toxic chemicals or messy bait. It's easy to use, easy to take along, environmentally friendly, weather proof, safe, clean and effective!
Inexpensive, easy to use, very portable, made from recyclable material, and
it will last throughout the season. You just hang the Original Waspinator
on your table umbrella or under the eaves of your home. You will be
surprised to see so many wasps leave the area! It's amazing. Based on an
old remedy for controlling wasps the Original Waspinator is the newest wasp
control product on the market.
Waspinators are made from recyclable, non- woven fabric with detailed striations to closely mimic a real wasp nest.
- It doesn't attract the wasps to your picnic area like the traditional wasp traps
- It doesn't use deadly chemicals that are detrimental to your outdoor environment
- It doesn't kill wasps which play an important role in killing other pests.
- It does all you to enjoy your family picnics, dinners on the deck and parties on the beach without those annoying wasps.
Note: Killing wasps releases pheromones that may actually attract other wasps. Bee kind to wasps!!!
Directions for Use:
Take the Original Waspinator out of the packaging and puff out the sides. This can easily be done by putting your hand inside the Waspinator and pushing the sides out. Once the Waspinator is as large as you can make it, take the plastic toggle and push it along the drawstring to tightly secure at the base of the Waspinator. Tuck the drawstring inside the Original Waspinator. Next, find a suitable location to hang it. Hang the Original Waspinator from the loop at the top, NOT from the drawstring at the bottom. The Original Waspinator should hang close to your eating area in a likely location of a real wasps nest. For example, from your table umbrella, the eaves of your home, against a wall, up on a tree, or up in a corner. Once the Waspinator has been hung up, wait 10-15 minutes. You should see a decrease in the number of annoying wasps. If you have a particularly bad wasp problem, try using more than one Waspinator. If you see a decrease in the effectiveness of the Waspinator, move it to a different location around your outdoor eating area.
|Actual Customer Testimonials|
|"I have always had a
wasp phobia. In fact I never eat outside and have never in my life been able to
enjoy outdoor dining. This summer I found myself in a situation where the group
that I was with had decided to eat outside at a local restaurant. Reluctantly,
and with my heart now pounding, I joined them. To my surprise there were no
wasps. I asked the restaurant owner "How did you do it? There are NO wasps
here?" He answered " The Original Waspinator". This was the first time in my
entire life that I was able to enjoy a meal outside."
you to know about our experience with your wonderful Waspinator. At a recent
Sidewalk Sale at our Dig This store we blew up close to 60 yellow balloons. As
I'm sure can imagine we attracted more than customers.........the wasps came
shopping too! We swatted, we waved our arms, we ran for your Waspinator. It
was quickly installed in a tree and in less than 20 minutes we were free of
wasps. Wow! What a product .....thank you for making summer much more fun. We
can all enjoy outdoor dining is relaxed comfort.
|Although the fall web- worm appears to be ravaging certain
deciduous trees all over the valley this summer, it really is just part of a
natural cycle that turns full circle about every 10 to 15 years. I am inundated
with questions at the Byland information desk and by e-mail on this visible but
innocuous caterpillar. I should say caterpillars, as it takes many of them to
create the webbing so obvious to us. As with many insects the fall webworm is
active for a much longer time than we realize. The insect pupates in the bark of
the tree or in the leaf litter on the ground. Adults emerge in spring and are
active from May to July. The females lay small clusters of eggs on the
undersides of foliage. By mid-July the first of the newly hatched larvae appear
and begin to form silken webs around the foliage they are consuming. Unlike the
tent caterpillar the larvae stay within the confines of the web, which they use
for protection and expand it downward toward the trunk of the tree throughout
most of July and August. As much as the damage looks devastating it really is
not harmful to the general health of the tree. This pest will never kill or harm
a tree in the long-term, however, if you feel you must mitigate then do so in a
responsible manner by disturbing the nest with a stick to expose the
caterpillars to waiting birds and wasps.
Did I say to feed the wasps? Many would ask why we would want to do that.
Wasps do an amazing amount of good by consuming a huge amount of aphids, leaf rollers and, yes, fall web- worms. Of course wasps love to join us at our summer barbecues but now with pheromone traps and my favourite cure, the Waspinator available, they are not as much of an issue. The reason the Waspinator is my favourite is it does no harm to the wasps, it just scares them away. The wasps actually think there is an enemy wasp nest in their midst and stay well away.
