Materials to Make Homemade Mosquito Traps
Here is the list of the materials you are going to need. The dark cloth is entirely optional. You can replace it with thick paper or just place the mosquito trap in a dark corner.
- A plastic bottle, the larger the better.
- Scissors, or anything sharp to cut the bottle.
- Brown Sugar.
- A piece of dark cloth.
The first thing you need to do is to cut the plastic bottle, we recommend a 2 liter bottle, in half. Then pour warm water in the bottom half of the bottle and dissolve 2 tablespoons of brown sugar inside. After that, you need to add 2 teaspoons of yeast to the sugary water.
Finally turn the opened upper half of the bottle around and place it on the bottom half. If you want more effective results, we suggest you to cover your homemade mosquito traps with a dark cloth or place the trap in a dark corner.
The mixture between the sugar and the yeast will create a smell to attract the mosquitoes to the trap. Once they get inside through the small neck of the bottle they can’t possibly go out. They will be entirely trapped inside.
If your problem with these insects is large. It would be a good idea to place several of your homemade mosquito traps around the house. Maybe one of each corner of your room while you sleep or a couple close to the window so they don’t even enter to your house.
