    Ok lately I've been plagued with some black wasps that have been stuffing all if my pitcher plants with dead grass and grasshoppers, and it's really bothering me because I can no longer sit outside with my plants and watch them almost vcontinually capture insects, without getting a wasp in my face. Does any one have any advice for me? If so it would be greatly appriciated.
    Thanks

    My advice is to not get stung by wasps. ;)
    Wish I could tell you what to do, but so far as I can tell, there isn't anything. The plants attract bugs. When wasps and other stinging insects come around my plants I just leave them alone and go about my business, and they go away after a while.
    Best luck,

    Hi Dave,
    I'm afraid I don't know what you can do about the wasps accept get rid of your plants. I too have many wasp around my cp's, fortuniatly they don't seem to be very aggresive around my plants and I can go about my business taking care of my plants. Jack

    Around here wasps just fly around the plants and suck up all the water. It's kinda annoying but they go about their business and completly ignore me so I don't care all that much.

    If you really want to get rid of them follow one back to the nest then hit the nest with wasp killer.

    That's the thing they live in the pitchers while they make the dead grass nests and then they move on to another pitcher.

    Maybe fill the invaded pitchers with water? Then put a wasp catcher or wasp repellent around your plants.

    Wasp killer is very strong stuff, it will kill anything it touches so he would have to be very carefull around the plants. My best advise is to try to shoo them away for a second then move the plants inside for a few days.
