DIY Pesticide-Free Mosquito Trap

 

The video below will show you how to build this simple mosquito trap.

Things you will need:

– An industrial drum fan with metal casing
– A flexible screen
– Magnets
– 70% isopropyl alcohol

The video also offers a solar powered option, in case you want to set one up where there is no electricity like a dog house or chicken coop, or if the power goes out and you are sitting outside to keep cool. It never hurts to be prepared!

Place the fans near infested or high traffic areas. KEEP FANS DRY, no rain. Always Unplug when servicing screens or moving. Place the inlet side towards people or animals so you suck the mosquitos away. This also sucks in carbon dioxide creating an attraction trail for the mosquitos to follow sticking them to the back of the fan:-)
