You can easily reduce the number of mosquitoes on your property with a plastic bottle trap that will attract and kill the mosquitoes.
The liquid in each trap will last about two weeks, and then, it can be easily replaced. For increased effectiveness, place multiple traps around your house or property.
Items needed: 1 cup of water; 1/4 cup of brown sugar; 1 gram of yeast and 1/2-liter bottle
How to do this? Cut the plastic bottle in half. Mix brown sugar with hot water. Let cool. When cold, pour in the bottom half of the bottle. Add the yeast. No need to mix. It creates carbon dioxide, which attracts mosquitoes. Place the funnel part, upside down, into the other half of the bottle, taping them together if desired. Wrap the bottle with something black, leaving the top uncovered, and place it outside in an area away from your normal gathering area.
