DIY Mosquito Trap: An Effective Solution for Mosquito Control

Are pesky mosquitoes ruining your peaceful nights? Don’t worry, we have a simple solution for you – a DIY mosquito trap that is not only effective but also natural. Say goodbye to harsh chemicals and annoying mosquito bites with this homemade trap.

Say Goodbye to Mosquito Nuisance

As the summer season arrives, so do the mosquitoes. Whether you’re enjoying a beach day or hiking in the mountains, these little creatures can be a real nuisance. But worry not, our homemade mosquito trap is here to bring relief.

Creating the Trap

This DIY mosquito trap works by using the power of fermentation gases to attract and trap mosquitoes. Follow these simple steps to create your own trap:

Ingredients and Tools Needed:

  • 200 ml of water
  • 50 grams of brown sugar
  • 1 gram of brewer’s yeast
  • An empty 2-liter soda bottle
  • Knife or scissors


  1. Cut the soda bottle in half just above the middle to prepare for the trapping solution.
  2. Boil the water and dissolve the sugar in it. Let the syrup cool below 30°C. You can speed up the cooling process by placing it in the fridge.
  3. Pour the cooled syrup into the lower half of the bottle and add the brewer’s yeast without stirring.
  4. Invert the top half of the bottle and insert it into the bottom half. Secure it with tape.

Placement and Maintenance:

  • Place the trap in areas where mosquitoes are prevalent, such as your backyard or patio.
  • For better coverage, set up multiple traps around your home.
  • Refresh the syrup every two weeks or when bubbles no longer form, indicating the end of fermentation.

Enjoy Your Summer Nights

This natural mosquito trap is not only effective but also environmentally friendly. It provides a non-invasive way to manage mosquitoes, allowing you to enjoy your summer nights without interruptions. Give it a try and reclaim your evenings from these pesky insects.
