A Slightly Improved Wasp/Asian Hornet Trap
This trap is based on the Animal and Plant Health Agency’s Asian hornet monitoring trap http://www.nationalbeeunit.com/downloadDocument.cfm?id=1056. This new version of the trap uses less materials, less tools, is a little simpler and allows for easy release of trapped insects.
You will need: Two large plastic bottles, a wooden skewer, two elastic bands, a small jar to fit in inside the plastic bottle, a piece of material to fit over the jar opening, string to hang the up the finished trap. The only tools required are a sharp knife or scissors and a hole punch or soldering iron.
