Wasp/hornet trap: a mason jar and a funnel. Put watered down orange juice in the jar. The wasps/hornets are attracted to the fruit juice so they'll go down the funnel but won't be able to find their way out and eventually drown. Pet and kid safe.

Bee safe wasp trap. How to make your own wasp trap for free

Add a mixture of vinegar, sugar and salt. The wasps are attracted to the sweet and sour scent yet bees don’t seem to be attracted by this sour mixture whereas a honey mix would be a fatal attractant. The down-side of this wasp trap is it also attracts and traps beneficial insects such as lacewing and hoverflies which are a natural pest control of aphids, so watch timing and usage spaces.

Bee Trap for Trapping Yellow Jackets

I saw this tip in "Country" magazine years ago and use it every year to trap yellow jackets and hornets. I have this one hanging in the grapevine. The yellow jackets like the apple juice better than the grapes. Lures them right in and they can't get out.
