Homemade Mosquito Trap and Repellent

Mosquito traps and repellents help avoid these nasty little biters.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.

Natural Repellent

Cut a lime in half and then take cloves and press them into the open half of the fruit. Placee them around your table or patio.

I can’t take credit for these ideas, I saw them on facebook. But they work and are worth passing along.
