  • Make a mosquito trap from a simple plastic cup

All you need to make a mosquito trap is a plastic cup (you can also use a glass). Pour a sweet solution of apple cider vinegar and sugar into it. Then wrap the jar with plastic wrap. Prick the surface with a fork or the tip of a pencil to make small holes while holding the plastic wrap in place with a rubber band. Then place your trap near a window or in a location favored by mosquitoes. Attracted to the mixture, mosquitoes will sneak into the cup and drown.

You can also make other mosquito traps by using simple and practical techniques. These, like the previous ones, must be accompanied by a suitable mixture to effectively attract these little beasts.

  • Make a mosquito trap from a plastic bottle

It is possible to make a fly trap from a simple plastic bottle. Before you begin, rinse the bottle with hot water and remove the cap. Then cut the bottle in half with a knife or scissors. Then turn the top part over to make a kind of funnel and attach it to the second part of the bottle, which must be larger.  Secure everything with waterproof tape. Pour red wine or balsamic vinegar on the bottom of the bottle to attract mosquitoes. They will be attracted to the smell and get stuck inside.

  • Create a mosquito trap with an open glass bottle

This other trick is easy to set up and only takes a few minutes.  Simply pour syrup into a glass bottle (make sure the walls of the bottle are impregnated). Then place it in a strategic location in the house. This will also attract mosquitoes to the smell and make it difficult for them to escape from the container. This simple and ecological trick makes it easy to catch these flying insects.

  • Hang glued ribbons to catch mosquitoes

There are many solutions on the market to catch flying insects such as mosquitoes and flies. Among them fly tapes, which are effective but can be harmful to humans. Therefore, it is preferable to make your own bands in a natural way. To do this, put a sufficient amount of sugar and honey in a pot and mix the two ingredients until you get a sticky consistency.  Next, drill wide holes on both sides of a sheet, so that you can pass strings through it. Dip the strip into the mixture once it has cooled and hang the trap in the right places to make sure it is dry.
