How to Make a Mosquito and Fly Trap

This homemade mosquito and fly trap is non toxic and cheap to make. It gives off no noticeable odor so it’s perfect for inside the house too. Having dogs going in and out all day as I do invites too many flies in my home and this is the perfect solution.  Mine has been outside for 4 days and it’s still working great. The photo below is after day 1.

Rinse out a 2 ltr bottle and cut the bottle about 1/3 of the way down from the top. Add 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup hot water and 1/2 tsp yeast. Swirl to mix and put the small part of the bottle cone side down inside the larger part of the bottle making sure there is room for the bugs to get in through the cone. You can glue or tape it together if it doesn’t fit snuggly. Mine fit fine so I can clean it out and reuse it.

Non toxic, cheap and it works. What could be better?

New to the Coupon-Wizards?

Are you new to The Coupon Wizards? I’m a one woman blog, but I work tirelessly, day in and day out, to find you the best deals. Both couponing deals and online bargains! This isn’t Extreme Couponing, it’s Effective Couponing! There is a method to my madness as well. Not only do I find sales & deals for you, but in doing so, I find sales & deals for me too. It’s a win win 😉 Plus I’m able to teach others to do this at the same time, which I love!

I started following The Coupon Wizards after doing some research on the subject, with a little prodding from a friend, and coming across them on Facebook. I was hooked immediately & started to learn quickly. Mostly out of necessity, but also because I loved everything about it. The organization, the researching, the putting together of deals, but most of all, the savings! I was saving my family money to pay those bills & be able to eat all at the same time. This blog was a life saver; literally! In no time at all, I was a blogger myself on the site. My husband has since found a job, but this is now mine and I love, love, love it and hope you will to. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Until next time, shop happy 😊
