How To Make A Homemade Mosquito Trap

Here’s how to make a homemade mosquito trap that actually works.

Items needed for your DIY mosquito trap:
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 gram of yeast
1 2-liter bottle

Assembling your mosquito trap:
1. Cut the plastic bottle in half.
2. Mix brown sugar with hot water. Let cool. When cold, pour in the bottom half of the bottle.
3. Add the yeast. No need to mix. It creates carbon dioxide, which attracts mosquitoes.
4. Place the funnel part, upside down, into the other half of the bottle, taping them together if desired.
5. Wrap the bottle with something black, leaving the top uncovered, and place it outside in an area away from your normal gathering area. (Mosquitoes are also drawn to the color black.)

Change the solution every 2 weeks for continuous control. Enjoy watching them all pile up in there :)
