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.
Here is the vertical cedar fence my hubby built (with my design, lumber shopping and staining help - I'm useless with a hammer though) to cover up the two hideous air conditioning units gracing our frontage. He's awesome! I'm happy. We left lots of air for the AC units to breathe so hopefully its fine.
