The Vespex Dominator Bottle Trap is used to monitor or directly reduce populations of insects or other arthropods by trapping individuals and killing them.
The Vespex Dominator Bottle Trap is recommended for use with Vespex European Wasp Lure when targeting European wasps (Vespula germanica). For European wasps foraging for protein the use of raw fish, chicken or other suitable meat products can be substituted in place of liquid lures to attract and capture wasps.
How Does the VESPEX Dominator Bottle Trap work when used with Sundew VESPEX European Wasp Lure?
The VESPEX European Wasp Lure has attractants that volatilise (evaporate) off slowly over time. These volatilised attractants form a ‘vapour’ trail from the VESPEX Dominator Bottle Trap.
Two things aid in producing a good vapour trail: heat (from the sun), and air flow. So when considering locations to install the Sundew VESPEX Dominator Bottle Trap look for locations that provide exposure to sunlight and provide regular airflow. This helps produce a vapour trail that foraging European wasps can locate and flow to the VESPEX Dominator Bottle Trap.
