After placing two 1.5V AA batteries (not included) in its battery compartment, insert the luminaire into its bracket inside one of the semispheres, then assemble the sphere.

Before applying the glue, wrap the sphere with a transparent plastic film (such as cling film, or two clear shower cups); then apply a suitable glue.

Suitable glues range from sprayable to brushable, specific for insects and tube glue (such as mouse glue), all of which are available in garden centres and specialised stores.

The most feared predators for bees are wasps and hornets and, in some parts of Italy, the dreaded Vespa velutina.

No need to have an orchard to support the wasps and hornets in circulation: they make nests everywhere, in attics rather than normally on trees, or in hidden cavities, usually in quiet places, where they can cultivate the undisturbed colony.
The concept does not change: it is now that the biotraps have to be prepared because it is very important to eliminate the queens and avoid the population.

In the orchard, it is necessary a natural defense against harmful flying insects in agronomy and civil, through a continuous mass capture, to significantly reduce the need for chemical pesticides.

We tend to use wasp traps only when the ripe fruit is on the trees: it is not enough.
In fact, vespas and hornets are greedy for figs, apples, pears and other sugars that our orchard offers, but what we do not know is that the use of wasps traps is only possible when the fruit is ripe.
 

It is certainly useful to catch hornets who eat the fruits of our work, but for them the fruit is just as greedy as the bait of our trap and we risk reaping just as ruined fruits, despite the traps full of insects.

Asian hornet queens hibernate in early winter, many of which are already fertile, sheltering in protected cavities, such as heaps of wood, more easily in putrid or wet areas, and precisely in spring they come out of winter.
 

Roam voracious: they need sweet substances (they look for pollen, flowers ...) to feed properly after months of rest and recover their strength to start looking for places favorable to the construction of the nest for the future colonies.

Vaso Trap® is a newly marketed trap for catching harmful insects, also designed with in mind the need and benefit of recycling common containers.

Vaso Trap® can be screwed onto recycled 1 kg glass honey jars.
Vaso Trap® is made of tough plastic material and consists in two parts: a funnel, to be positioned on the top of the jar (so as to prevent captured insects to fly out) and a lid which screws onto the jar, so as to protect the bait from rain, and has 6 regular gaps (so as to let the insects in).
