HOT TO MAKE BAIT TO LURE THE ASIAN HORNET / VESPA VELUTINA
Here at PCP we supply Asian hornet lure in the following sizes: 125ml, 250ml, and 1ltr and 5ltr bottles.
To order our attractant please search PCP-VVA or Asian hornet lure in our online catalogue.
We appreciate that this is not always the most cost effective way so each Vespa velutina trap (Asian hornet trap) contains instructions in English (unless requested in other languages) when ordering wholesale. *Depending on the type of trap you are using the total volume of attractant will vary* Please see specific instructions depending on your model.
How to make the formula
We recommend that you use half blueberry juice or a similar sweet fruit syrup and half dark brown beer or sweet white wine as follows:
• Half of your choice of alcohol as above
• Half of your choice of sweet fruit juice as above
Placement of trap
For beekeepers, traps should be hung in trees close to or on hive stands.
Otherwise the trap should be hung or placed outside in and around any affected areas ideally at head height.
You should regularly replace the liquid within 14 days or sooner if evaporation occurs.
If Asian hornets are detected please ensure you alert the relevant authorities as soon as possible.
