Since mosquitoes are drawn to the CO2 we breathe, I started looking for ideas that use CO2 as bait for the mosquito trap. I thought dry ice but it disintegrates pretty quickly.

I found a cached link on Google. Now it seems to be active again. I've rewritten some instructions and hopefully it will work.

We would like to thank the students for their hard work in this project. I used some of your photos as examples.


1 2 liter soda bottle

sharp knife

Black paper


sugar thermometer

Take a 2-liter soda bottle. Cut the lower right corner where the upper part starts to narrow, turn it into the lower half and insert it.

Make a simple sugar syrup.


1 glass of sugar

1 cup water

2 cups of cold water

1 teaspoon. active dry yeast


Boil 1 glass of water.

Dissolve sugar in boiling water.

When the sugar is completely dissolved, remove the pan from the stove. Mix with 2 glasses of cold water, mix well.

Check the syrup temperature to make sure it is not hotter than 90 degrees F, if it is hot, let it cool to 90 degrees F, add 1 teaspoon. active dry yeast, no need to mix. Put the syrup on the bottom of the bottle using the cut neck piece and leave it in place.

Be sure to seal the two parts of the bottle with tape. The fermentation yeast will release carbon dioxide. Put black paper around the bottle since dark places and mosquitoes like carbon dioxide. This mosquito trap will then begin to work.

TIPS: Place the trap in a dark and damp place for 2 weeks, you will see the effect. You will need to change the sugar juice + yeast solution every 2 weeks.


These connections describe the direction and what to do with black pepper. Here is a cross-section of information on paper:

Put black paper around the bottle since dark places and mosquitoes like carbon dioxide. This mosquito trap will then begin to work. Mosquitoes fly around the corner, so the best place to place the trap is in a dark corner.

It also writes about placement and longevity - Tips: Put the trap in a dark and damp place for 2 weeks, you will see the effect. You will need to change the sugar juice + yeast solution every 2 weeks.

On your website, someone reported how to get rid of mosquitoes using a plastic bottle. It's a great idea, but better yet, adding vinegar and sugar juice will not only get rid of mosquitoes, but also get rid of the annoying annoying gnat.

I made two mosquito traps from a soda bottle today. I didn't have a black construction paper, but I had a black floor cloth. I cut a piece to cover the bottle and staple the fabric to the base so it would stay flat. This should take longer than paper. Using duct tape, I fixed the fabric and the two bottles. Now I'm ready to see how many mosquitoes I've caught.


They attract mosquitoes, it's their job. They attract women (those who are nettles) and therefore have a cumulative effect on reducing the mosquito population when successive female crops are destroyed.

We use CO2 traps and live in the waters of the Texas Gulf Coast. There are mosquitoes up to 12 months a year and I can prove their effectiveness.

The key is to know how to use them. Never put them near your outdoor seating areas, they will attract mosquitoes. He seems to see himself open, but people who complain about traps are usually very close to their area. It seems to work best for us, about 30 feet away, preferably upwards.

If I'm on the lee side of the garden or garden house, I'll wear a DEET repellent for daily mosquito control; CO2 trap, sitting in the morning with coffee, hanging out in the hammock during the day or sitting on the deck for happy hours. We don't need to spray pesticides on us or our wetland swamp. Dragonflies and butterflies and so on. We don't want to kill.

Give it a try, how cheap and easy? Much cheaper than propane, SkeeterVacs are also wonderfully used, much cheaper when used correctly. If you don't like it or it's ineffective, you've removed a 2-liter bottle and a pack of yeast.


There are a lot of mosquitoes in northern Canada, and let me tell you that the so-called "mosquito trap" doesn't work. Deet is the only driving force. Nothing else works. However, Off's new products also work with Closed Lamps with clips attached to your belt or small pads heated by a candle.

The same thing exists here in a product called Thermocell that heats a pad with a butane heater. This is good for use where you cannot light a candle. Rolls burned by someone are also very effective, but other products are better. Don't waste your time, effort or money because other products don't work.

They drowned in the water, so it is important to keep the water up to about half of the bottle to its original mark. Because of my experience with my fly trap, the black-painted area leads them down to the trick to try and get out. If you keep these things working, I add more active ingredients every week, so that it can continue, even mask the lower half and paint the upper half black.


Months ago, I did an internship with the UC Davis Department of Entomology. I helped mosquito research. I remember our mosquito traps the size of a small coffee canister and a conical ball at the bottom. We hang them on the limbs and put a piece of dry ice (about 3x3 inches) in the box. Carbon dioxide would attract mosquitoes and take plenty of samples from the traps.

What is the best way to replant your lawn?

If you're tired of tanning in your garden, lifeless grass stains or stubborn heaps of crab grass, there may be time to refresh your lawn. There are several ways to regenerate your lawn, but sometimes damage can be too heavy for a quick repair. Destroy your entire garden - lawns and all - for complete regeneration and sprinkle brand new grass seeds on the lawn.

Step 1

Determine whether to install a new series of cold season grass or warm season grass. Cold season grasses - as the name suggests - grow in cold months. Warm season grasses develop well in warmer weather. Your seed selection determines when you need to plant your new seeds. Start sowing seeds in the warm season in early spring and plant seeds in the warm season in early autumn.

Step 2

Kill your old herbs with herbicides. Spray the herbicides directly on the grass. Avoid spraying everything you don't want to die for (trees, bushes and flowers, for example). Begin the destruction of old herbs early, because it may take several weeks for the herbicides to function properly. Read the instructions for herbicide containers carefully before use.

Step 3

Turn the soil 6 inches up in your garden. Use a shovel for small areas. Larger grass areas may require rototiller. A rototiller is a machine specially designed to break up soil. Break up piles of soil larger than your fist.

Step 4

Pour your grass seeds into a manually pushed seed spreader. Bring the seed drill to the corner of the garden and start pushing it slowly and steadily. Walk along a zigzag line in your garden, distributing the seeds evenly across the raised soil.

Step 5

Apply a thin layer of soil over the freshly sown seeds. This helps to protect them from hungry birds and other animals that may try to eat your seeds. Water the lawn with a soft water spray.
