No wasps here yet. Product arrived in good order about a week after the payment went through. We're RD so that's pretty good.

I put the first of my baits out today.

What did you use to hold your 20 test baits Trev

I'm tickled even pinker at all these "tests" going on. It's proven technology, or DOC wouldn't have spent their money on it. !

You need to do a test to ensure they are on protein, or else it's a waste of the product.

Around the 20 mark. I did not test every site/apiary. At the other sites, if I saw wasps I treated.

I'll be really interested to hear how long before the effects of the baiting are noticeable.

No. We got 24 hours of rain. Not overly heavy so it soaked in. Bees were still working most of the time. Beautiful sunny day here now, from around 11 am. I still see wasps around and I had 2 call outs today for wasp nests. Never a bad time to kill wasps.

This time last year i was pulling my hair out ( i am bald) with wasps. Even resorted to home made poison. This year is a dream hardly a wasp in sight. Have twenty nucs mated and no wasp problem so far. Long may it continue.

I think this rain is flooding all the wasps nests in the Waitakere Ranges, so far so good :)
