a simple method to build a mosquito trap

Here is a simple method to build a mosquito trap:

Materials needed:

  • An empty plastic bottle (preferably a water or soda bottle)
  • A knife or scissors
  • Scotch tape
  • Waterfall
  • Sugar
  • Yeast


  1. Take the empty plastic bottle and remove the label.
  2. Cut off the top of the bottle, just above the point where the diameter starts to narrow.
  3. Invert the top of the bottle and insert it into the bottom of the bottle to form a funnel.
  4. Secure the two parts of the bottle together using tape to hold them in place.
  5. Mix hot water with sugar to create a sugar solution. Fill the bottom of the bottle with this sweet mixture.
  6. Add a small amount of yeast to the sugar solution. The yeast will act as bait to attract mosquitoes.
  7. Place the mosquito trap in a location where you often have problems with mosquitoes, such as outside near an area where they congregate.
  8. Leave the mosquito trap in place for a few days, replacing the sugar solution at regular intervals.
  9. Mosquitoes will be attracted to the sugar solution and yeast, then enter the bottle through the funnel and will not be able to get out.

It is important to note that this method of mosquito trapping may be useful for attracting and capturing some types of mosquitoes, but it does not guarantee the complete elimination of all mosquitoes. It is also advisable to take other measures to reduce the presence of mosquitoes, such as eliminating sources of standing water, using mosquito repellents and maintaining adequate hygiene in infested areas.
