Posting Your Catch To Us

Thank you for taking part in the 2019 Big Wasp Survey. Now send us your wasps!!

Please make sure that you have updated all your trap details listed on your account page. We need to know when the trap was outside, it’s postcode and remember to update the Trap Status on the first tab, so we know what state your trap is in.

Send Us Your Wasps!

Please prepare your envelope (ideally an A5 jiffy bag) as follows:

On the front write:

FREEPOST
Big Wasp Survey

That’s it… Nothing else.
We did hear last year that some parcels were returned to sender by the postoffice. But we have checked… This is DEFINITELY all you need to write on the envelope. If they are returned to you, please let us know.


We need your trap numbers.

On the back, write your name and address, but most importatly,
your TRAP NUMBER (or numbers)!

Without your trap number we won’t be able to match your collection to your data and location and we won’t be able to use it.
