How Very Simple Way to Kill (Dengue Mosquito) -

  1. This seems like a simple and practical way to trap all types of mosquitos.We can also do this at the field sites for flood victims medical camps etc. It may also trap flies.

    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. DIY is so easy and its costs are unbelievably negligible.

    Eradicate Aedes and dengue..

    FIGHTING DENGUE MUST START AT EVERY HOME.

    Mosquito trap (Dengue prevention)

    It is just a mix of water, brown sugar and yeast.

    1.Cut a plastic bottle in half, keep both parts. Can be Coca Cola / Pepsi bottle.

    2.Take the lower portion of the bottle. Dissolve the brown sugar in hot water. Let it cool down to ~70 deg F.

    3.Add the yeast. Carbon dioxide will form (This will attract the mosquitoes)

    4.Cover the bottle with a dark wrap and place 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. Check this link and this other link.

  2. It is a clever Carbon Dioxide releasing invention.

    Yeh; we human require oxygen to inhale for our respiration and carbon dioxide is released in exhaling.

    Mosquito is blood sucking insect. I have also read somewhere that mosquito is attracted to this carbon dioxide. During sleep we release lot of carbon dioxide in one particular area which becomes easy for the mosquitoes to locate its target and suck blood.

    The serum released by the mosquito and injected to the human body during blood sucking prevents the blood clotting in the mosquito sucking tube before it reaches mosquito stomach.

    This mosquito serum carries lot of fatal viruses like Dengue fever

    What will be the solution of germs and fungus produced in this way

  4. Agreed that it is a simple CO2 generator. Blood sucking insects like mosquitoes and bed bugs track their victims following the CO2 trail (exhaled during sleep by us).

    When yeast feeds on sugar converting it into alcohol and co2 (further conversion yields vinegar) both products actually do kill therefore not much bacteria or viruses survive or are able to flourish in such products. In addition, this chemical reaction is exothermic. Lots of heat is produced (the mix actually simmers) during this process.
