Making a Mosquito Trap

This guide is about making a mosquito trap. To keep mosquitoes from ruining a picnic or camping trip, it is nice to have an enticing trap to lure them away from you.

    DIY mosquito trap. I totally want to try this! 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. Make a simple sugar syrup. Ingredients: 1 cup sugar 1 cup water 2 cups cool water 1 tsp. active dry yeast

    Even worse than those hot, humid days are the mosquitos that thrive in that environment. I'm looking forward to trying this homemade trap. The simple syrup and yeast "bait" create CO2 in the bottom of a 2-liter bottle. Mosquitos are attracted to CO2. The trap needs to be replaced every two weeks. Hopefully it is a genius idea for the backyard this summer.

Homemade Natural Mosquito Spray Using Witch Hazel, Citronella & Lemongrass Oils and an Empty spray bottle!

How to make an herbal spray to keep mosquitos away! Just basil, water and vodka. Basil essential oil can be added, too, if you have it on hand.

Natural Bug Spray. Here’s what you’ll need: essential oils (citronella and lemongrass are musts, I also like lavender or you could use tea tree oil or geranium oil for tick protection), 14 oz. bottle of witch hazel (available in grocery stores & pharmacies usually close to the rubbing alcohol), a spray bottle (or two–one for home and one for the diaper bag/car), a jar for mixing, and a funnel.

This lady had some really easy diy re-upholstery tricks for items with only cushions.

Homemade Natural Mosquito Spray- keep them away, without the use of chemicals.

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.
