Homemade mosquito trap

Yes, I know the weather’s foul (at least in the northern hemisphere), but we’ve passed the solstice and the days will only get longer from here on out! Dream of warmer days and nights as you make yourself a mosquito trap; couldn’t you use a few of these? You’ll need a 2-litre pop bottle, black paper, sugar, yeast, and these instructions. I also found some instructions for DIY fly traps here and here, while here are some tips for dealing with wasps and hornets.

What a great idea, I’m definitely going to be making 5 or 10 of these this year.

I love your blog I was so excited when I found it earlier today. :D
