Dealing with wasps

Posted by blueberrytalk on October 19, 2016

Wasps can be distracted  from trying to enter honeybee colonies. A container of cappings is placed on the inner cover to give the honeybees a couple of days to lick off whatever honey the can find. Then the container with others is placed on the top of a colony. Wasps will be drawn to this for the last remains of honey rather than run the risk of trying to enter a hive. If you want to reduce the wasp population the picture shows how.
