Step 1: Trap

Take the empty soda bottle and cut right on top of the label, after peel off the label and take off the cap

Step 2: Bait

Drop your cat or dog food into the bottom of the bottle. Then pour in a 1/2 cup (125 ml) of apple juice.
Your done the bait now.

Step 3: Finish

Put the top halve of the bottle upside down into the bottom halve of the bottle.
It should fit snuggly.

Put your trap somewhere where lots of wasps are. They will fly in through the top and will get stuck inside.
