    Mosquito Killing Ovitrap

    I made these exact units last year, I hung 8 around the perimeter of my yard in the wooded shade. Kept them filled with water, didn't catch a single mosquito. I figure it must be a different breed here in Maryland near Washington DC. It's a shame since it's a great design and a great idea. We had a bunch of mosquitoes so I know I didn't miss them working, they didn't work.

    Thanks for the idea! I plan on hanging these from our chain link fence. The hook goes over the top bar and the string ties around the poles to secure it. Im worried the hook isnt strong enough, but thats easy to replace later. I made 6, found the cups at the thrift store, only thing i had to buy were the socks. I skipped the adhesive, the sock is just in the cup. I also added a layer of fiberglass screen between the sock and the cup to keep the skitters from escaping through the weep holes. We shall see, hope thry kill those zika virus carrying skitters!
