3D model description

It is a selective trap in the form of a honeycomb lid.

Designed to be screwed onto "Le Parfait Familia Wiss" type glass canning jars diameters 100 or 110 depending on the model chosen. I do not guarantee it will work on other jars.

The idea of the cone is not new but I was looking for a simple solution to implement, without the need to tinker with a wooden box or use a plastic bottle.

The constraint was also to successfully retrieve the live hornets so that they could be marked. This meant eventually being able to put the trap in the fridge to put the insects to sleep in order to handle them safely.

Also included a small cap to avoid any unfortunate exit of hornets in the fridge (you never know).

If you try this trap and have any results (positive or negative) or questions, feel free to post them in comments.

NB: The creation that originally inspired this design was the hornet trap by dms88.

Edit: Impressive results so far for small diameters, investigation underway to know the real role of the trap itself ^^: link
