Homemade Insect Trap


With heavy duty scissors, cut the top off a 2 liter soda bottle.

       Make bait
  • Wasp - use raw meat.
  • Mosquitos - use 1 tsp. of yeast and 1/2 cup of sugar in 1 cup of warm water.
  • Flies - use 1/2 cup of sugar in 1 cup of water.
  • Most any flying insect - use 1 cup of a sugary soda.

Place bait into bottom half of bottle. Invert top and place in bottom half. We use black electrical tape to adhere the two pieces together due to some beliefs that the color black attracts insects.

Insects will go in and won't be able to get out.
