DIY Mosquito trap- good for about 2 weeks... then replace ingredientsMaking a Mosquito Trap Because mosquitoes are attracted to the CO2 we breathe out, I started looking for ideas that used CO2 as the bait for the mosquito trap. I did think of dry ice but it does dissipate fairly quickly. I found a cached link on Google here. It seems to be active again now. I've rewritten the instructions some and hopefully it will work as well. Thanks to the students for their hard work on this project. I've used some of their photos for illustration. Supplies: 1 2 liter soda bottle a sharp knife black paper tape candy thermometer Take a 2 liter soda bottle. Cut off the top right below where it starts to narrow for the top, invert and place inside the lower half. Make a simple sugar syrup. Ingredients: 1 cup sugar 1 cup water 2 cups cool water 1 tsp. active dry yeast Directions: Bring 1 cup of the water to a boil. Dissolve the sugar into the boiling water. Once the sugar is dissolved completely, remove the pan from the heat. Stir in 2 cups cool water, stir well. Check the temperature of the syrup to make sure it is no hotter than 90 degrees F, if hotter, let cool to 90 degrees F, add 1 tsp. active dry yeast, no need to mix. Put syrup in the bottom part of the bottle, using the cut off neck piece, leave in place. Be sure to seal the two parts of the bottle with the tape. The fermenting yeast will release carbon dioxide. Put black paper around the bottle since mosquitoes like dark places and carbon dioxide. This mosquito trap will then start working. TIPS: Put the trap in a dark and humid place for 2 weeks, you'll see the effect. You'll have to replace the sugar water + yeast solution every 2 weeks.

BAD IDEA!!!!! Fill container with vinegar, sugar and salt to trap wasps ... and ensure that your garden is overrun with caterpillars and other pests. Wasps hunt and kill caterpillars, spiders and other garden pests. Notice that lacewings also got trapped. They eat aphids.

penny ball in the garden for repelling slugs and making hydrangeas blue Here’s a simple garden art project, that is wonderfully mindless. Use a strong glue to attach your surplus pennies to a thrift store bowling ball. It would be a great project to do with your kids on a rainy day. For the glue, my favorite is made by Amazing Goop, and I use the Home and Garden or Marine formula, because they are UV resistant as well as waterproof.
Penny Ball Another Garden idea with bowling balls

penny ball (for repelling slugs and making hydrangeas blue)...very cool idea. Use three layers of pennies, a bowling ball and GE Silicone II for glue.

With our two children, ages 3 and 4 (eleven months apart might I just add), my husband and I find it hard to have time alone.We find it next to impossible to get the chance to go to the movies on a date. Instead of paying for a high price baby sitter, we find our favorite dates exist in our tiny candle lit backyard, when the kids are asleep, watching movies on our Epson Home DVD Movie Mate.

Here’s a nifty idea that’s both affordable and virtually foolproof. With some concrete and a little glow-in-the-dark paint, you can have an illuminated pathway in nothing flat, perfect for midnight strolls under a full moon. The beauty of these stepping-stones is that it doesn’t matter how long, short, wide or narrow your area is. You have total freedom to design the stones and the pathway you want. And you don’t need a mold. Just dig, add concrete and walk away. It really is simple. Take ...

This garden shed features a roof made from a collection of wood-framed windows pieced together like a puzzle. The lower walls are clad in clapboard siding. The result is a bright and beautiful place to work on the inside--and a beautiful garden structure from the outside. Vines scrambling along the eaves add vertical foliage and flowers. Acrylic panels cut to size form the angular windows of the gables. A system of levers and handles allows the gardener to open the top windows for ventilation.
