This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP Curiculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Homesteading 

In this Badge Bit you will build your own mosquito trap.

Trying to garden or relax with a mosquito in your ear is impossible.  Mosquitoes are attracted to the CO2 in our breath, odors in our sweat, and the heat of our body. Yikes!

Threads on permies describing mosquito traps:


Some inspirational media about mosquito traps:  



To complete this BB minimum requirements are:
-Trap must be homemade.
-Must catch about a half a cup (~115ml) of mosquitoes (over several days is ok)
-Brief explanation of how mosquitoes are attracted to the trap and how they are caught/killed

To document your completion of the BB, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes): 
-Trap being made.
-Finished, empty trap with brief explanation
-Mosquitoes caught in the trap
-Total about half a cup of dead mosquitoes collected
