Helpful Hints from joeeze: Quick & Dirty Mosquito Trap


From Well Done Stuff!:

Mosquito Trap

1. Cut the top off a 2-liter bottle.

2. Invert the top cone piece and place it inside the straight part of the bottle.

3. Glue the two pieces together.

4. Add 1 teaspoon yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to a little lukewarm water and pour the mixture into the bottle.

5. Mosquitoes are attracted to your exhaled carbon dioxide — the yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas so mosquitos enters the bottle, thinking they will find food there....

1/2 cup sugar? Way too much. A couple TBS would do.

Great trick! Will try it some time.
