Many people consider rodents and spiders to be pests, but personally, I think mosquitoes take the cake.
A man named Dan Rojas wanted to find a way to stop the spreading of diseases like Zika and malaria, which are commonly carried by mosquitoes.
Then, a brilliant idea hatched in his mind. He figured out a cheap, easy way to get rid of those pesky mosquitoes on a huge scale so they wouldn’t bother children, families, or anyone else for that matter.
The best part? This DIY project is something you can duplicate at home!
In the video below, posted on July 6, 2017, Dan explains his entire process and gives a demonstration to show how his trap works.
He lays the square screen right over his orange fan, using magnetic rocks to keep it in place. Next, Dan begins spraying rubbing alcohol over it. This physically traps the mosquitoes without harming other curious animals.
Then, he lays a bottle of seltzer water out with the cap slightly open so the carbon dioxide slowly slips out and attracts the mosquitoes. Since the mosquitoes don’t like large concentrations at once, a slow leak works perfectly.
Within two days, Dan traps nearly 8,000 mosquitoes!
Check out just how this fan trap works for Dan in the video below, and please SHARE if you think this is super smart for those humid summer nights!
