If you have mosquito problems, here's a simple, homemade trap that could help you cut down the population.

Homemade Mosquito Trap

What you need:

1 cup of water
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 gram of yeast
2-liter plastic bottle

Directions:

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.
