Summer Time Bee catcher

They’re coming…

It is pool season and I love a late afternoon or early evening dip in the pool.  Our pool is a simple 18′ round above the ground pool and was supposed to be temporary.

That was about …um… I don’t know how many years ago, before the down turn in the economy. You see we were going to put an addition on our house and add a “real” pool after that.

Well Que Sera Sera, everything happens just the way it’s supposed to.

Anyway, the important thing is we have a pool!

So as I am cruising Facebook I come across this tip on how to trap them.

 

How to make a Wasp Trap

  • 1/4 cup vinegar,
  • 1/2 cup of warm water
  • 1/2 cup sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon salt 

Place several containers around your pool or outdoor play area.

 

I think I will give it a try… I hope it works better than the one for mosquito’s which was a total fail!  If you have tried this one, post in the comments and let us know how it worked!

 

Until next time…

 

Life is simple… don’t get bugged!
