How Yellow Jacket Baits Work
Yellow jackets leave their nests to search for food, and can travel quite far, venturing into your backyard or picnic to join in on the feast. They can become very annoying and aggressive when they are in search of food, especially nearing the end of the season when their natural food sources begin to dwindle. They can congregate near dumpsters, garbage cans, fallen fruit over-ripening on the ground, and any food source they may find. Well-placed bait systems or baited traps will draw the foraging yellow jackets to the traps away from populated or busy areas.
How To Use Yellow Jacket Baits
Yellow jacket baits are fairly easy to use, but there are some extra steps you should take to make sure your baiting efforts work as well as possible. Keep these things in mind when baiting for yellow jackets.
If there is an active yellow jacket nest on or very near your property, baiting will not offer complete control. Removing the nest completely will offer much better control if this is the case.
Make sure you have chosen the right bait for the right stinging insect you are trying to target.
Clean up and put away any possible food sources in the area you are baiting, including any overripe fruit, spills, crumbs, pet food, etc. Make sure garbage cans are well sealed and cleaned.
Choose the best type of bait system for you. One option is a liquid bait lure that is poured into a trap. The yellow jacket is drawn to the food-based attractant and then is unable to escape. Another choice is a bait station, where you will place a bait of your choosing (like raw chicken, fruit juice, etc) mixed with an insecticide.
Make sure you read all directions thoroughly and set up all baits and bait stations accordingly.
