Since I have seen mosquitoes as early as two weeks ago, this information I found is none too early. I will make these by the gross!
The amounts are converted here for ingredients. This is close, but I don't think it is too far off to negatively effect the outcome--trapping mosquitoes.
1 cup warm water
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 heaping tsp yeast
A suggestion from me: tape around the top of both bottles to secure them. Mosquitoes can squeeze into tiny places even if they cannot find their way out of the huge opening of the bottle top.
This will be exciting if I can trap a few that want to feed from me. I think I will secure one in the car, too.
Dengue fever, spread by mosquiteos is reported in the Southern US. I read a post about making a mosquito trap and cannot remember where. If you know, I will refer everyone the site.
Have you ever had a commercial or homemade mosquito trap? Did yours work? Did I get the conversions close enough?
