Free wasp traps!

We get wasps in our backyard, but those wasp traps start adding up! I hate spending $50 or more of our scant money to trap wasps. I was excited to find something free that really works!
Take your mostly empty jar of jam or jelly. Don't wash it, just fill it about 2/3 with water. The sweet jam will attract the wasps, & drown them. Voila'!

This doesn't work quite as well in the spring. Apparently wasps are more attracted to savory things in the spring, & sweet later in the summer. But it seems like late summer is when the wasps start getting bad outside.
