How To Get Rid Of Mosquitoes: A Homemade Mosquito Trap That Really Works

You may or may not love summers. Other than the scorching heat and fire breathing wind, mosquitos make the situation about ten times worse. People are forced to resort to solutions such as mosquito zappers and anti-mosquito vaporisers. However, these can often cost a lot of money since this has to be implemented across all rooms in a house. Here is a simple way to get around this problem, folks.

Mosquito trap

You can now make a nice and simple mosquito trap at home using a few easy to find items. These include: brown sugar, empty 2 litre bottle, water, yeast and a pair of scissors.

Start off by removing and discarding the cap of the 2 litre bottle of Coke. Then, trim the bottle in half. Dissolve 60ml brown sugar in 200ml boiling water. Once it is cooled, pour it into the bottom half of the empty bottle and add 1ml of yeast to the mix. Insert the upper half upside down into the lower half and wrap them with a black cloth.

Empty bottle

You must be curious as to how this technique works. It is pretty simple, actually. Mosquitos are attracted by carbon dioxide-generating sources like animals and human beings. The mix of yeast and sugar gives rise to carbon dioxide at a slow and steady rate. This, in turn, attracts those blood thirsty mosquitos to the bottle with a vengeance. Eventually, they end up in the water and fall prey to the trap.
