If you’re a fan of mosquitos, raise your hand… nobody? Didn’t think so. Mosquito bites itch, leave marks, and they can also spread diseases. In theory, we can wipe out mosquitos but alas, we need them as they are an important part of our ecosystem. Apparently, fish and other insects feed on them and you know how that whole chain reaction thing goes.
So how do we go about our lives coexisting with these annoying bloodsuckers? The internet has your soon-to-be-mosquito-bite-free back! Below we have a video with the exact steps on how to do this, but the steps are the following.
The first step is to find a bottle of pop and cut the top off with a serrated knife. You then create a concoction which you will put into the bottle consisting of:
- A 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1 full cup of warm water
- 1/4 teaspoon of yeast
You then proceed to mix it and place it in the bottle. You then turn the top of the pop bottle around and put it into the bottom. The mosquitoes will go into the bottle as they will be attracted to this irresistible mixture and won’t be able to get out. That’s it! This surprisingly simple trick is super easy to do and will keep the mosquitos away. Watch the video below for instructions and don’t forget to share!
