These things do the job better than expected. My garden furniture is stripped yearly by wasps but I got one up on them this year. I followed the advice from other reviewers and hung two up spaced apart before sighting the first spring wasp and I haven't seen one near my house since. Although made of paper they have kept their shape despite the heavy rains. I wouldn't advise touching one that's wet because then it would likely fall to bits, but they dry out very well. 10/10 for such a cheap product that works.
