Mosquito trap

With the arrival of summer, the fight against mosquitoes becomes relevant. These blood-sucking insects not only leave painful bites on the human body, but also carry dangerous infections. There are many mosquito traps. About one of them - from a plastic bottle - we will tell in this article.
The principle of the trap is simple. It emits carbon dioxide, which attracts insects. Mosquitoes fall into it, and can not get back. The advantages of this trap include health safety and low cost of raw materials. And it can function without a "refueling" for a week.
So, for the manufacture of mosquito traps, we need:
• One and a half liter eraser bottle;
• Granulated sugar (50 grams);
• Baker's yeast (5 grams);
• Water (180 ml);
• Dark fabric;
• Scissors.
