Mosquito update: Gaaaaaaa! They’ve made an extremely unpleasant situation around here, outside and in.
I’m still waiting on the pheromone bait for the mosquito trap. The machine gives off carbon dioxide in addition to the mating scent. Mosquitoes are drawn to that gas because that’s how they find their prey —birds and mammals exhale. I’ve seen this trap in action though. Run it overnight and by morning you’ll have a full cup of dried mosquitoes. That’s a lot of mosquitoes that can’t go off to reproduce. I’m looking forward to this so much, I hardly have words for it.
I found this the other day and I’m itching to try it. hehehe
I’ve already bought the yeast and have tape and brown sugar. I just need a bottle. Everything I’ve read says these work. Some of the pictures I’ve seen pictures that show these bottles with hundreds of mosquitoes inside. Better in than out I say.
I’m in on the Hump Day Hook
