Designed to mimic the look of a wasp nest, the Waspinator works by sending the message that the area is already inhabited by wasps – keeping other wasps away. The Waspinator is portable and easy to set-up so you can use it anywhere you might encounter wasps including backyards and patios, picnics, the beach or any other outdoor event. Made of durable, weather-resistant fabric, the Waspinator will be ready to protect your family from wasps year after year.
If there is already an established wasp or yellow jacket nest near the area you would like the Waspinator to protect, we recommend removing it first as their instinct will be to to return to their nest.
"I wanted you to know about our experience with your wonderful Waspinator. At a recent sidewalk sale, we blew up close to 60 yellow balloons. As I'm sure you can imagine, we attracted more than customers... the wasps came shopping too! We swatted, we waved our arms, we ran for your Waspinator. It was quickly installed in a tree, and in less than 20 minutes, we were free of wasps. Wow! What a product. Thank you for making summer much more fun. We can all enjoy dining in relaxed comfort."

"We have always had a wasp problem in our barn, but we didn't want to use chemicals and couldn't find/reach many of the nests anyway. We bought two Waspinators and hung them in the barn. Although it was early spring, there were still a few wasps around. However, a half hour after hanging our Waspinators, the wasps had disappeared! We haven't had a wasp since. Your product is awesome!"

"I bought two Waspinators and put one under the patio umbrella, and one under the patio light by the back door. As I have a phobia of wasps, I positioned a chair by the back door to read and observe. In an hour, I saw six wasps and one bumblebee, and all took off almost as soon as they came inside our fenced patio. As I got the use of my patio back, I noticed very few came around, and the few that did were there no longer than it took them to see the fake nests. It is truly a scarecrow for wasps! I've recommended it to friends and I endorse its use for anyone who wants to be rid of wasps!"

"I have used the Waspinator for about a month now and am amazed each day. It works exactly as it says! I have always had a problem with those big red wasps on my front porch, but not since hanging up the Waspinator! Now I can sit out on my porch in peace, without the flyswatters and bug sprays. Everyone that sees it can't believe it, and they always leave wanting to take MY Waspinator home with them! Thanks for making such a terrific product!"

"Wow! Hot summer day, plenty of food and drink, NO WASPS to be found. After our main event, I took them to the University that I work for in Detroit, Michigan and used them a number of times with much success. Having a little environmentalism in my blood, I am truly grateful for your invention. The Waspinator keeps the wasps out of our occupied areas, yet doesn’t harm the beneficial wasps or the environment."

"My mother an I were inundated with red wasps and yellowjackets everywhere around my decks and porches. I was very skeptical about something like the Waspinator. However, it works... and I mean really works. I occasionally see one or two wasps flying in the yard, but now I do not have them nesting around my house. I am excited about this product and I would highly recommend trying it. What have you got to lose, except for those pesky wasps?"

"We just returned from vacation on Vancouver Island, where we came across your wonderful product. We were at a restaurant called Fish Tales in Nanaimo. We sat outside to eat in their beautiful garden, and I noticed right above me a Waspinator. 'Oh great,' I thought, 'I'm petrified of wasps, and they put me here to eat.' I was thinking I was going to be dodging wasps all through my meal. But guess what? I never saw one wasp. It was Heaven to enjoy a meal outside and not have to worry."
Dilys Ball, Calgary, AB
"I had a horrible yearly problem with wasps around my all-brick house, nesting in the crevices between the brick and wood molding and around the rain gutters. This spring I purchased four Waspinators (one for each side of house) from gardeners.com. For the first time in five years, we are not being bothered by wasps."
George Kalinowski, RPh, Connecticut, USA
"I originally purchased two Waspinators last spring in a desperate measure to keep wasps and yellowjackets away from my front porch deck. I was amazed at how efficient it was. I gave the second one to my sister, who was more than skeptical. But she hasn't had wasps buzzing at her entry door all summer and now wants another. We tell everyone we know when the subject of annoying wasps and yellow jackets comes up. Thank you for an amazing product that anyone who values quality time outside should have."
