Introduction: The Easiest Mosquito Trap...(Under 1 Buck)

Hello Guyz And welcome to my first ever Instructable... Im using this in the pest control contest and i hope i win...

Well..How i first came up with this idea

We once lived in a village amongst.. Swarms Of Huge Flies...

Well i saw what attracted flies mostly ... It was Dark Color or a Uv Light

So..I made this simple and an easy project and well the next thing i knew we were living in PEACE !

Step 1: Step 1 : Materials Needed for This Spectacular DIY !!

These Things can Be Found Nearly Anywhere !

1. A 2.5 liters plastic bottle

2. Dried Yeast ( Mostly it comes in the form of granules)

3. Boiled Water

4. Brown Sugar

Step 2: Making the Structure

Picture of Making the Structure

The Structure:-

Well, It looks like the same as picture one more or less... So Start by taking a bottle...Cut the part from where the bottle starts to straighten...As you can see in the picture the place is already marked...

After that you will be left with two pieces one with a cap and an other with the main body..

Place the piece with the cap upside down in the body .. As so that the Cap will be facing the bottom of the other piece....

Your STRUCTURE IS complete !!!

Step 3: Attracting Flies !

Well, For this step is Easy I will Just tell you how to make the mixture

1.Pour the boiling water inside the structure (container) you made

2.Add 2 or 3 tbsps (your choice) brown sugar

3.Stir the Mixture

4. Add Yeast

5.Its not really necessary to stir

Now try to make the structure firm

Take a black towel or cloth and wrap it around the structure firmly as flies are attracted to dark colors !

Step 4: Finished!
