Beautiful wasp and bee killer
I am really really really scared of all insects but I also don't want to kill them just because I'm stupid and phobic. I tend to look for humane ways to get rid of them instead. This usually means I run and hide in another room until I can't see the bug anymore. I am, however, especially frightened of bees because one of my dogs is extremely allergic to them and it's led to several scary dog ER visits. That's why I would consider getting this elegant glass decanter which, when holding a sweet liquid like lemonade, will of course attract bees and wasps, but unbeknownst to them, is a death trap. The wasp trap has a hole on the bottom so when the bees crawl in, they get stuck and can't fly out due to the very lovely-looking green glass stopper. I will assuage my guilt with the knowledge that the trap is made of recycled glass.
The small hanging traps are $10, and the larger model is $22.50 at Lee Valley.
