Alpine Yellow Jacket Bait Stations with Onslaught Insecticide
This Yellow Jacket kit combines Alpine Yellow Jacket bait stations and Onslaught Insecticide. Onslaught is labeled for use in a bait station for yellow jacket control. The stations are reusable, but you may purchase the replacement or additional stations.
Use this kit around homes, restaurants, campgrounds, zoos and other areas where yellow jackets, "meat bees" harass and sting humans or animals. Place these traps away from the sites you want to protect. They are designed to lure the yellow jackets. Place around the perimeter, drawing them away from your areas of activity. These traps come with a hanger; hang them low in trees or bushes. Please tell children and others to avoid the trap area.
Which Yellow Jacket Species Can Be Baited ?
The baiting solution to get rid of yellow jackets works on the "meat bee" yellow jacket. This is the scavenger yellow jacket. They are the western yellow jackets, the common yellow jackets and the German yellow jackets. Bald faced hornets, paper wasps, and honeybees can not be controlled by baiting procedures.

Choose Your Own Lure
These stations are not pre-baited, and they are designed to be used with a choice of meat baits, such as chicken, cat food, cold cuts, hamburger or tuna. You can test with each to see what works the best. If yellow jackets are found near water, such as lakes and rivers, fish may be the best choice for bait. If they are found in areas away from water, chicken or other land animals may be the best bait choice.
Change the meat lure-bait so it does not spoil. Yellow Jackets switch in food interests during the fall. They change from mainly proteins to sugars and carbohydrates. You will achieve greater control baiting during their meat eating season, rather than waiting for the fall season.

How It Works
After setting out the traps, the yellow jackets will be attracted to the meat inside the traps. They will contact the insecticide and ingest it, reducing the yellow jacket population and achieving control.
Suggestions For Yellowjacket and Onslaught Combination
- The recommended rate of Onslaught Insecticide to a suitable bait is 0.025% or approximately 1/4 teaspoon for 10 oz of suitable bait such as fish flavored cat food or similar products. More is not better. Higher rates may repel yellow jackets.
- Thoroughly mix the insecticide into the bait. (Wash container thoroughly afterwards.)
- Place a couple of ounces in each station, dividing the mixed bait into the Alpine Yellow Jacket Bait stations. Hang about 5-6 feet off the ground in bushes or trees, keeping them away from children.
- Recommended spacing is about 50 feet apart. The manufacturer recommends about 8 stations per acre.
- Secure the bait stations with the caps and hang them at eye level.
- Change the bait every couple days, so the meat does not become rancid. Yellow jackets prefer fresh meat.
