As strange as it may seem, the old belief that mosquitoes prefer sweet blood is partly true. It’s the high carbon dioxide content that attracts mosquitoes, who are capable of sensing changes, especially when you exercise.
Mosquitoes are also attracted to the smell of sweat, particularly when there are high amounts of lactic acid or ammonia present.
How to Build a Mosquito Trap
You will need:
50 grams of sugar
1 tablespoon of yeast
250 ml of water
1 plastic bottle
A plastic bag
Mix water, sugar, and yeast well in a bowl. Cut the plastic bottle in half with scissors. The nozzle of the bottle is the cap and needs to be turned upside down.
Pour the mixture into the bottle and tape it shut, then wrap the trap in a plastic bag and place it in a corner of your bedroom.
With this mini DIY mosquito trap, you can enjoy a peaceful night and never hear that annoying buzzing again.
