First you will need

  • At least a 2 liter bottle
  • Soapy water to fill the bottom of the bottle
  • Enough string to hang the bottle from a tree branch
  • Scissors to puncture holes at the sides of the bottle for easy hanging
  • Some time of meat to hang over the bottle, optional

DIY Bee/Mosquito/Wasp/flies Trap

If you are currently being plagued with Bees, Wasps, Mosquitos or flies around your home this will give you an idea of how to easily get rid of them with just a few products you will probably have around the house.

The first thing to do is to cut the bottle in half. If you choose you can choose to either put the top of the bottle in the lower half of the bottle, like the picture. Or you can use both halves of the bottles to make two traps total by screwing the cap back on the upper half of the bottle. Either way if you choose to make two traps or one take the scissors and puncture holes on all four sides of the trap.

Next take the string and weave it through all four sides of the bottle holes leaving enough space for hanging the bottle off something. Next, take the meat and tie it so it hangs just above the bottle opening.

Next take the soapy water and pour it into the bottom of the bottle. You want enough water so when the bees land to eat the meat they will drown but you don't want so much water you'll spill everything taking the bottle to where you are going to hang it.

At this point you have your home made Bee trap, it's time to hang it up. I would recommend hanging the trap far enough away from your home so you won't get attacked by the bees when you go outside but you want to be sure you will place the trap close enough to the bees that they will be drawn to it.

You should change the traps about every week or so depending on how many pests you get drawn to the trap.
