A Twitter user recently shared a hilarious way to trap those deadly creatures using salt and tequila.
She explained that the mosquito would land on the salt, believing it to be sugar. She further added that the mosquito will feel thirsty and jump into the cap, thinking it was water. It will then trip on the stick because it was ‘drunk’ and then bang its head on the rock and die.
The user in the tweet wrote, “Mosquito trap. The mosquito lands on the salt, thinking it’s sugar. They get thirsty for water, but the cap has tequila in it. The mosquito gets drunk, trips on the stick, and bangs its head on the rock.”
