This mosquito trap is really easy to make. It does not work on all kinds of mosquitoes, so make a sample and test how well it catches mosquitoes in your area.

  1. 1.Cut off the top of a 1.5 or 2 liter plastic (PET) bootle that soft drinks are sold in.

  2. 2.Mix water, sugar, and yeast in the bottom portion of the bottle.

  3. 3.Turn the top of the bottle upside down so it is now a funnel shape and drop it into the open mouth of the bottom portion that has the yeast mixture in it. If  it slides down into the bottom, use tape or glue to hold it in place.

  4. 4.Wrap the outside of this combination with black paper or plastic.

  5. 5.Replace the solution every 3 weeks.

Happy mosquito catching!
