Q

We have a concord grape vine on our fense and our neighbor has a large woodpile near it. The wood pile is a home for hornets which eat our grapes before they are ready to pick. What is a safe way to get rid of the hornets in the wood pile?

Answer(s)

A

I would suggest that you use a wasp and hornet trap.  Begin early so that the population of hornets doesn’t get so large.  The wasp or hornet species you have will determine the trap that you will want to use.  Please see the attached Utah Pests-Newsletter and look at the article 'The Right Trap for the Right Wasp'.
