Great liquid for wasp traps

    While trying to attract the bellbirds and tui in my garden with sugar water I disappointingly am also feeding the neighbourhood wasps. So I researched online and found this great recipe for killing wasps. It Works a treat.

    1/4 cup sugar
    1/4 cup vinegar
    a good squirt of dishwash liquid

    Mix it up and leave it out in a wasp trap or any container. The dishwash liquid messes with the wasps exo skeleton and drowns them really fast and it doesn’t seem to put them off going into the liquid either.

    The vinegar is meant to repel bees.
