Recycled 2-liter mosquito trap! cut of the top and glue or tape the pieces together, then fill with 1 cup water mixed w/ half packet of yeast and 1/2 cup sugar. Mosquitos are drawn to the CO2 we exhale, and since yeast produces CO2 they will go right for it and not be able to escape. GENIUS!! Plus, you could decorate or theme these to match your next outdoor party... :-)

Take that mosquitos!- Mosquito trap - Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the straight part of the bottle. Glue the two pieces together. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there.

Aphid control - Coat a yellow plastic cup on the outside, with Tree Tanglefoot, a very sticky substance that doesn’t wash off. The aphids are attracted to the color yellow, they fly onto the cups and the Tanglefoot catches them.
