The Sagaform Swedish designed wasp trap

SUNNY weather means outdoor dining, and you can ensure there are no uninvited guests at your picnic or barbecue with this wasp trap created by award-winning Swedish designer Matz Borgström. Easy to use, it’s a green alternative to chemical bug sprays. Simply fill the base with a small amount of sugary liquid – lemonade or squash will do the trick – then wait for the wasps to be lured in. Once trapped inside they drown happily in the liquid. With its curvy shape and snazzy stripes the trap will attract more than just wasps, and the reasonable price tag shouldn’t sting too much. Just remember to place it well away from where you plan to sit.
