Summer Rescue-TrapStik for Wasps

***Disclosure-Sample product was received.  All opinions stated are my own based on my personal experience.

Saturday my husband and I were outside doing some outdoors work on our lawn.  He was cutting the grass and I was trimming our shrubs.  My Lil Bit was her little pool enjoying the sun.  Next thing you know, I scream.  I feel an excruciating pain on my leg.  I screamed for my husband and i didn't know know what bit me.

Next thing you know my husband, sees the swarm of wasps that has made a nest exactly where I was trimming.  This big wasp bit me on my leg.  It hurt really bad.  I am so glad it was me and not my Lil Bit.  The bite soon became a swollen spot on my leg.  My husband hurried up and installed Rescue!  A little to late for me but not too late to protect the rest of the family from these wasps around our house.

The TrapStik® for Wasps catches paper wasps, carpenter bees and mud daubers.
The TrapStik® for Wasps uses new VisiLureTM technology to lure these stinging insects with appealing colors and a multi-dimensional pattern. Wasps are attracted by the colors and patterns on the TrapStik®, then get stuck to the adhesive surface.
  • Catches queens and workers, from spring through fall
  • Can be placed near a nest to reduce populations, making it safer to spray
  • Odor-free
  • Pesticide-free
  • Water-resistant
  • Made in USA
Wasps are lured to the sticky surface, and once stuck, they expire on their own.
I hope you don't have these around your house and never get bitten by one.  A friend recommended putting a freshly cut potato, cut side down on my bite to take the venom out after you remove the stinger.  Luckily I had no stinger in me but it hurt like I did.  I took benadryl and it knocked me out so it was too late for me to do this.  Have you been bitten by a wasp?  Do you have a home remedy?  What have you done?
