      Not quite a product, but something I have to try, since I am usually the mosquito trap. Make this one from a soda bottle. Worth a try.

      How to get rid of mosquitoes... Take a 2 liter soda bottle. Cut off the top, invert and place inside the lower half. Make a simple sugar syrup. 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.
