THE SCOUT: PESTS

Ward off wasps in style

September 26, 2009|Lizzie Garrett

One of the greatest things about living in Southern California is the ability to dine alfresco year-round. The downside? Bugs. Pesky bugs. Stinging bugs. Wasps. That's where the beautifully rustic and inexpensive hanging glass wasp catchers from the L.A.-based eco-friendly PriscillaWoolworth.com come in. Just fill the vessel with a little sugar water, and it will lure those pests away from your Prosecco. Wasps enter through a hole in the bottom, start drinking and get trapped. A 5-inch-tall wasp catcher, pictured here, is $5; an 8-inch-tall version is $10. Just for reference, a can of Raid wasp and hornet killer retails for about $7, and that isn't adding any ambience to a dinner party.
