Mosquito trap

Mosquito trap - No more mosquito!! 

  • Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. 
  • Invert the cone and place it inside the straight part of the bottle. 
  • Glue the two pieces together. 
  • Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. 

Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there.

  1. That is a fantastic idea, thank you sooo much for sharing it. There is not much that irritates me more than having a buzzing mosquito while trying to sleep, so one of these traps will be just the ticket for the bedroom.

    Have a great week. xo
