      I use simple unscented dish soap and water in mine, but I never fill them all the way up, only about 1/3 to 1/2 otherwise I have had the basses fall off or crack off especially with any wind or pesky bird landing on it.

      Very true - I simply use the same detergent water in them I use in my pans. Not a true "killing agent" but effective.

      Folks- as regards vane traps, note that without a killing agent inside, some bees will escape.  Over one noon hour, I introduced 3 live Halictus to each of 3 empty vane traps.  I watched several fly out within the first minute, and after an hour, all were gone.

       

      Yours,
