Mosquito Trap

found this on Facebook.  See, It's good for something.
Homemade Mosquito Trap

2 liter bottle
1 tsp yeast
1/2 cup sugar
lukewarm water

Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the straight part of the bottle. Glue the two pieces together. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking it will find food there and is trapped.

My best guess is to put these in the far corners of your property, away from the spots people gather.
