(9th July 2011)Three new great,green products are now in stock and include……….
“Wasps are very “visual” insects. They depend on a keen sense of sight to catch moving prey. Predatory Insects, like many wasps and all yellowjackets, have large, prominent compound eyes. Other insects that hunt live prey also have very large compound eyes (for example, praying mantids, syrphid flies and horse flies). Highly visual insects tend to respond to their environment based on visual stimuli. Thus an artificial nest like The Original Waspinator may be perceived as a competitor and be avoided.”
—Jack DeAngelis, PhDAssociate Professor of Entomology, Emeritus
So literally the wasp thinks it is the nest of another group of wasps and scoots out of harms way allowing you to enjoy the peace in the great outdoors.
