Great trick with that bottle. I'll try using it in my garden. Thanks, man.

Actually, an even better design is if you take a big plastic bottle (like this one), cut of the top just a little bit below the "shoulder" of the bottle. Then you put the top back but the wrong way up, so that the opening points downward into the bottle - like a funnel. You secure the two pieces together with a piece a metal wire (that you simply pierce through the bottle all the way through), that you can also use to make a hook to hang the bottle in. You fill the bottle with some "juicy" liquid. Voila, a perfect (but not very beautiful insect trap. Good for catching wasps for instance.

The top part, that is turned upside down, makes sure that the insects cant escape once they're in there.

I think I originally saw that design in an ex-royal potager in France somewhere.

But I don't have a picture of it.
