    Mosquito Trap - A Cheap Way



    Forwarded by a doctor. It might be useful.
    CAUTION:

    This information may cause massive loss of jobs in insecticides companies, but it could save thousands of innocent lives from the cruel fate of dengue.

    My apologies to all branded insecticides in the marketplace.

    DIY is so easy and its costs are unbelievably negligible.
    Eradicate Aedes and dengue.

    FIGHTING DENGUE MUST START AT EVERY HOME.

    Mosquito trap (Dengue prevention)
    Its just a mix of
    water, brown sugar and yeast.

    1. Cut a plastic bottle in half, keep both parts. Can be soft drink bottle.

    2.
    Take the lower portion of the bottle. Dissolve the brown sugar in hot water.
    Let it cool down to ~70 deg F.
    3.
    Add the yeast. Carbon dioxide will form(This will attract the mosquitoes)
    4.
    Cover the bottle with a dark wrap and insert in the top portion upside down like a funnel. Place it in a corner in your house.
    5.
    In 2 weeks you will be surprised by the number of mosquitoes killed.

    We had a Dengue outbreak in India last year and this is what I found effective against mosquitoes.
    A every effective remedy is to burn citronella candles or oil. Camphor, neem, are also very good to use as mosquito repellents. Camphor can be burned and the house fumigated to render it mosquito free. Alternatively just dropping Camphor in water and leaving the bowl in your home acts as an effective repellent too. Use diffusers with essential oils such as citronella, neem, etc. to drive away mosquitoes. Keep your house clean and use a mosquito repellent skin cream when outside the home and before retiring for the night. Most importantly get your municipal authorities to come and spray the surroundings once or twice a week till the mosquitoes are vanquished.
