Homemade Mosquito trap...a lot of other pinners complained that when they tried this it didn't work...even with fresh yeast or with dark paper around it or in warm dark corner of the yard. I don't think we'll lose much by trying, but not getting my hopes up.

Homemade Natural Mosquito Spray

Mosquito trap - No more mosquitos!! Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside 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. FLIES LOVE THIS!!! Have caught 1000's of flies!!
