The combination of acetic acid and isobutanol is attractive to different species of Vespidae in different areas of the United States. In Washington, the blend was attractive to workers and queens of Vespula pensylvanica (Saussure), Vespula germanica (F.), and workers of Dolichovespula maculata (L.). In Maryland, these chemicals were attractive to worker Vespula maculifrons (Buysson), worker V. germanica , worker Vespula squamosa (Drury), worker D. maculata , worker Vespa crabro L., and female…

Carbohydrate bait preferences of wasps (Vespula vulgaris and V. germanica) (Hymenoptera: Vespidae) in New Zealand
Abstract Carbohydrates are both a source of food and a potential bait for control of common and German wasps. Carbohydrate preferences of wasps were determined in a series of paired trials by
Attraction of Mocis latipes (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) to sweet baits in traps.
TLDR
Molasses and jaggery baits aged in the laboratory for up to three days before field testing were more attractive than freshly-made baits to M. latipes moths, indicating their attraction to these baits.
Baits and Attractants for East Coast Yellowjackets, Vespula Spp.
The problem of yellowjacket invasion into sites of human activity has become important over the past few years. Interest in outdoor activities has caused an ever-increasing human encroachment into
Octyl Butyrate, an Effective Attractant for the Yellowjacket
TLDR
For the past 3 years, tests designed to compare heptyl butyrate with another promising lure, octylbutyrate (OB) have been conducted.
Bait-Pails as a Possible Control for the Oriental Fruit Moth
TLDR
A report of a preliminary trial of the bait-pail method of control under orchard conditions and a detailed study of the fermenting process in baits with special reference to their attractiveness to the oriental fruit moth, Laspeyresia molesta Busck.
Color Preference of Vespula squamosa
TLDR
It is concluded that V. squamosa distinguish yellow-orange and green colors, and traps painted saturn yellow captured significantly more yellowjackets from Oct. to Dec. than unpainted traps or traps painted other colors.
