Introduction: How to Make a Mosquito Trap
HOW DOES IT WORK?
- Mosquitoes will be attracted to accumulated water and lay their eggs in a piece of cloth for spawning.
- Once the mosquito larvae has hatched, they will drop into the water to become adults.
- When the mosquitoes are full grown, they will be too large to fly out and will be trapped inside by a T-shirt.
