Warming the water for the traps Aprox 2 oz of warm water Add one packet of yeast In warm kitchen Add 2 scoops of sugar Or 3 scoops of sugar Mix with finger or wooden spoon Place near heat Look for bubbles in about 5 min. Any kind of yeast will do While waiting for mixture to bubble begin preparing traps Using a clean plastic wide container and paper towels Use scotch tape to secure paper towel. The idea is to create a stair case for the bugs to crawl up By adding flares to trap it makes it easier for the bugs to crawl up Note the length of the paper towels as well. The warm water yeast and sugar mix is expanding, means the yeast is good, the water was not too hot nor too cold. Where the paper towel meets the top edge should be smooth so bugs can crawl across. Make holes in lid to water bottle, a nail and hammer would work too. I used scissors, but is dangerous for the inexperienced. Yeast mixture now has lots of foam. I use used cooking oil, but new oil will work fine. Use about 3 Tablespoons per trap. cover all inner sides of container with oil, including base of bottle The yeast gases will often create small fragment of mixture at base of inside of trap. Use funnel to add Yeast mixture Add more warm water Make sure that it’s not too hot nor too cold. Fill warm water a few inches from top of bottle. Shake mixture Goal is for gases to escape through the top of bottle and settle inside of container that has the cooking oil. Center bottle Using aluminum foil wrap bottle leaving space for gases to go down bottle. Aluminum foil must not touch edge of trap, because then bugs would climb up it, instead of falling in trap. These traps will often catch many different types of bugs including spiders. Traps work best if human victims are shielded by plastic, with clean linen, and mattresses lined in plastic secured with duck tape.
