oldog, that's the plan! Make some beer, then let the mosquitoes get drunk on it, fall in, and drown!

P.S. ...... If you drink enough of the beer, you may not give a darn about the mosquitoes anyway! :-D

That is the thought. Buy her a new bucket, I can have the old.

I've tried the jugs with yeast now for a while, they do catch bugs, just not a ton of mosquitoes.

Bucket with water works, but it's nothing special. It does not get a ton of them and more moths than anything, which I like.

Starting tonight I'm going to take pics and do a series of articles on mosquito traps. Being outside at my house is impossible they are so bad. You can be out there for five minutes and get bit three to four times.
