Want to get rid of them? Here's how to make a mosquito trap. I wanted to know "Does this work?"

First of all here's what you need to make your own Mosquito Trap:

1 - 2 Liter Bottle

1-1/3 cups hot water

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 tsp. yeast (1 gram)

Masking or Duct Tap

Now that you got all of those things together let's get started.

Here's how to put it all together to trap those nasty itching buggers.


Well, I didn't have much luck trapping skeeters, but it honestly was fantastic getting rid of flies. Those are my next arch nemesis.

I did notice the longer the solution sat out it smelled more like really old beer.

I'll have to try it again to see if I catch mosquitoes, but in the time being I'm happy I have no flies sneaking in the back door of my house.
