The process of making mosquito traps
For the manufacture of traps need to take a plastic bottle with a volume of 1.5-2 l Of it must be cut throat. The cut is performed as evenly as possible along the line of transition of the neck into straight wall. The prepared halves are now delayed.
Then you need to prepare a solution for attracting mosquitoes. For this it is necessary to heat 200 ml of water to a temperature of +35…+40 degrees Celsius. She poured in a cut bottle, and in it dissolve 2 tablespoons of sugar.
Then the top is filled with a teaspoon of dry baking yeast.
They are not razmeshivatsya. You just need to sprinkle them on top of the yeast themselves will soften and fall into the water. It is important that the filling of the yeast, the water temperature was within the specified degree. This will allow them to be activated and start to process sugar.
Then cut the bottle inserted in the inverted neck as a funnel located. It should not reach down to the water with the yeast.
Next, you need to darken the bottle. To do this, it is wound newspaper or other thick paper. It can be fixed with tape, tie a string or just press a paperclip.

As a result, they fly into the trap and its form can’t get out, then get tired and fall into the liquid.
This trap is perfectly safe for humans and animals, as filled with conventional yeast and sugar. The validity of the one filling in about 2 weeks. Exactly how much yeast can live in sweet water and release carbon dioxide. In the heat they work faster, so the refilling of traps required more often, besides the liquid from it evaporates actively, which also reduces the validity.
