Hurt the enemy where it hurts them most; their children. This trap permits the small mosquito larva to sink through the screen but trap the pupa from emerging into the air. The result: a liquid compost of dead mosquitos.relevant notes: A mosquito can lay 100 to 200 eggs within its adult life cycle (a few weeks to a few months). The aquatic stage of a mosquito is about 14 days.

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....
