The bees have been really bad this year. I’ve been stung 4 times already. The stores are selling bee sprays and traps like crazy as people try to deal with all these bees. So I decided to make a homemade bee trap.
Plastic jug – Recycled juice or milk jugs work fine
Piece of cord or heavy string to hang it up
Small amount of apple juice and vegetable oil
Tie the cord around the handle and hang it up outside. After just a few minutes my first homemade bee trap already had a few bees inside. The bees go down into the juice and the oil gets on their wings and they drown. I added another jug which is shown in the first picture that I used a lettuce net to hang a piece of hot dog inside for added attractant.
Using a recycled plastic jug to make a homemade bee trap works fairly well. Both of my traps now have many dead bees inside.
