How to Make a mosquito Trap without
spending a dime. I had all these things:
liter soda bottle is best (we don't
buy soda so I used a thinner water one)
old miss matched black sock (you know those lost extras)
old black tshirt
used file folders
plastic grocery bags
black plastic pot used
2 tablespoons brewer's yeast
5 tablespoons white sugar
old smashed nectarine (or substitute)
1/8 cup of any wine
cup of warm water
drops of jasmine oil
teaspoon boric acid
|I had these two black socks without matches I wasn't certain|
which one would fit right.
War on mosquitoes.
Organic, cheap, budget, green
First step is to check your yard and neighbor's and
get rid of any standing water or soggy lawn. Kill the
larvae by drying them in direct sunlight or put them
in a jar and freeze them for a day.
The second step in creating your trap is to make
the syrup bait.
In an old jar put all the wet ingredients
Stir the sugar, wine, yeast and water and
place in full sun no lid for a day or two
Save the jasmine
line up all your pieces.
I cut the old t-shirt into strips that I used for
my tomatoes and had some scraps left over.
Below here you will see the cotton strip.
I decided it was too wide for my wick.
I ripped it in half without scissors.
The strip is double the length of my cut
bottle as to hang touching the syrup and
be tucked outside to the sock.
This will make the odors come out
more into the room to tempt the critters
