Mosquito Trap – An Effective Way
This information may cause massive loss of jobs in insecticides companies, but it could save thousands of innocent lives from the cruel fate of dengue.
My apologies to all branded insecticides in the marketplace.
This is very easy to make and also it cost unbelievably less.
This will help eradicate Aedes and dengue.
FIGHTING DENGUE MUST START AT EVERY HOME.
Mosquito trap (Dengue prevention)
It’s just a mix of water, brown sugar and yeast.
1. Cut a plastic bottle in half, keep both parts. Can be soft drink bottle as well.
2. Take the lower portion of the bottle. Dissolve the brown sugar in hot water. Let it cool down to ~70 deg F (room temperature).
3. Add the yeast. Carbon dioxide will form. (This will attract the mosquitoes.)
4. Cover the bottle with a dark wrap and insert in the top portion upside down like a funnel. Place it in a corner in your house.
5. In 2 weeks you will be surprised by the number of mosquitoes killed.
Please feel free to share your kills 😉
Too lazy to buy ?? Okay plant these then
Mosquito Plant- Citronella Grass
The most common plant used as a mosquito repellant is the Citronella Plant, commonly known as the Mosquito Plant. Mosquito Plants are great for planting around the yard because actually do contain citronella. Since they are planted in the spot, they are constantly repelling the mosquito unlike repellent products that only repel when sprayed or lit. Most of us are familiar with citronella candles. Citronella grass is where the oil comes from for these products. This is a tropical plant that grows well over six feet tall, so if you do not have much space it would not be very viable in a small backyard or apartment garden.
Marigolds are another popular mosquito repelling plant. Marigolds have been used for centuries in or around gardens, porches, and other frequented areas. Marigolds come in various shades of golds, yellows, and oranges. They produce beautiful flowers and are great for pots or beds. They are a very common fall flower as well.
Marigolds are also great for other pests. Many rose gardeners plant them near or around roses to help detour other insects such as aphids.
Another great landscaping plant for preventing mosquitoes is Ageratum. Ageratums produce coumarin which gives off a horrible smell that mosquitoes detest. Coumarin is commonly found in commercial repellents. Ageratum is great for your landscape as well and they come in pale blue and white.
Catnip can be used for more then just the cats! Catnip is actually the most powerful mosquito repellent plant. Recent studies have shown that Catnip is many times stronger then DEET.
Another great mosquito repellent is Horsemint. Horsemint detours mosquitoes much like a citronella plant. Mosquitoes absolutely can not stand to be around the plant.
In addition to planting these plants, you can simply pinch a bloom or two off of each plant and crush them by rubbing them in your hands and simply rub it on your clothing and exposed skin. This will make the repellent stronger and protect your from the mosquitoes.
Peppermint oil is commonly used for indigestion and nausea, but also seems to be effective at repelling insects and mice! It’s also a pretty little plant that looks nice and can be used to make some peppermint tea!
Although seemingly effective, most varieties of eucalyptus cannot stand temperatures drop below 27 degrees Fahrenheit. However, you can purchase the oil and keep some in a container on a table to repel mosquitoes.
These plants will help repel mosquitoes in your yard, but you can also make a repellent from them, crush the leaves and place in some rubbing alcohol. Once it is infused you can use it as you would normally use an aerosol or spray repellent!
