The story of VapoWesp

A startup with a heart for animals

The founders: Mother & Daughter

Wasps can be real troublemakers. They can be chased away with smoldering coffee powder – but this smells really unpleasant over time. We, Claudia & Leslie Eckert, a mother-daughter team, came up with the idea of VapoWesp because of this problem: The smoke box repels wasps in a natural way and also spreads a pleasant smell thanks to the VapoPowder.

Our idea

Repel wasps naturally with VapoWesp

With the desire to develop things that make life better, we looked for a natural and resource-saving wasp repellent. Our thought: wasps have a very fine sense of smell. Rising smoke signals danger to wasps and keeps them away. An old household remedy is to light coffee powder. With the smoke box, we have developed a fireproof container in which the coffee powder can glow, and we have also created the biological VapoPowder mixtures that give the smoke a more pleasant aroma.

Environmental aspect

Fair to insects and nature

Wasps perform many tasks in the ecosystem and are therefore an important part of nature, as they contribute to the pollination of plant flowers, just like bees. VapoWesp focuses on wasp repellent through the naturally scented VapoWesp herbal blends in combination with coffee powder.
