    Saw This On Facebook For Mosquitoes

    Have you noticed the Mosquitos are already out! Here is a homemade trap to help keep you and the kiddos from being a blood donor!!!

    HOMEMADE MOSQUITO TRAP:
    Items needed:
    1 cup of water
    1/4 cup of brown sugar
    1 gram of yeast
    1 2-liter bottle

    HOW:
    1. Cut the plastic bottle in half.
    2. Mix brown sugar with hot water. Let cool. When cold, pour in the bottom half of the bottle.
    3. Add the yeast. No need to mix. It creates carbon dioxide, which attracts mosquitoes.
    4. Place the funnel part, upside down, into the other half of the bottle, taping them together if desired.
    5. Wrap the bottle with something black, leaving the top uncovered, and place it outside in an area away from your normal gathering area. (Mosquitoes are also drawn to the color black.)

    Change the solution every 2 weeks for continuous control.

    This looks like it also may be good for dealing with aphids, since aphids are not fond of CO2.

    I find that by keeping a bucket full of water with leaves in it and skim netting the surface daily to remove the eggs laid overnight keeps my local population to a minimum and my fish fed.
