Hi
Wasps are back on our pool drinking the water. Last year we tried all the standard wasp traps and bait etc. - but they are only interested in the water in our pool. We also tried filling a large bucket with clean drinking water and placed it a few metres away - but no - they preferred pool water laced with chlorine! We cannot find a wasp nest nearby. Any ideas anyone?

Hi Graham,

I have had customers tell me that with their salt system their neighbours around them get wasps but they are not troubled by them.

I have not previously mentioned this because no-one had mentioned it to me before and it would seem that I was trying to promote our system in relation to this problem.

If you tell me (PM me) whereabouts you are located I will contact a customer nearby to see if they have a wasp problem and p[ass their details on to you to check.

Regards,
Dave

Wasps.

You dig a big hole outside your house, you fill it with water and these innocent little creatures think, “wow, somebody’s providing us with all the water that we need....................................People are really wonderful aren’t they”. icon_surprised.gif

You can’t blame them can you icon_wink.gif

Re your problem with small flying creatures, my husband and I saw this on holiday. If you hang up small canvas bags near to your swimming pool, the wasps will think that there is a nest close by and will leave the scene not to return, there had been a lot of wasps drinking water by the pool, but when this was tried they vanished despite the false nests flapping in the wind.
Hopefully this will help for not much expense
