I came across this video for a mosquito trap on the Talk Baja Facebook group:

Thought it might be helpful.

funny you should mention that....

well I have tried that one and no luck for me.    as noted others had same experience.  

one thing that I do still similar in concept is i have a bird bath that i do not put sugar or yeast in as my system to try to catch the egg laying mosquito.  i figure if they lay their eggs and i kill the larvae that i have decreased the potential population.       and believe me every 3-5 days i have many wigglers going.      

the odds are you do not even need the yeast the mosquito seems to be able to find water very easily to lay eggs.    as i noted i did not have any in my 3 I set out in all different places where i found mosquitos as a norm.   I believe  they may have liked my bird bath better.      I just received (via someone bringing it down to me with the other non-deet repelants to try that I ordered online),   a trap by spring star inc , and it is basically a black blow molded tube with two holes with tubes leading in, all black.  so really about the exact same thing.      i set it up on saturday and it had sugar and yeast for it too.   i still have my bird bath going.    so will be interesting to see if i catch any egg layers or the egg layers leave some eggs that turn into some larvae.    

so I can tell you right now 2 days later not one mosquito is in the brew.   it is in an area that I kill via old fashion fly swatter 10 mosquito a day.  these really are easy to swat when standing.    

so to recap not a single mosquito.  now does that mean they did not lay eggs yet?   well the hard part is this one is solid black.   so will be difficult to tell.   but one difference is this one instructs you to put 1-2 drops of dishwasher detergent as a method to break the water surface tension.   it says will work in 1-2 weeks and you will notice the decrease in a few months?  

again in my book using a bird bath and cleaning it when you see the wigglers about every 3 days does the same.    and no i still have never seen a major decrease in mosquitoes even though i am essentially killing the ones that were successful at drawing blood offspring.  

my point is as they say even the cap from a soda bottle the mosquito can find that small of a vessel to lay eggs.  if it worked as a trap to flying ones you would have them in a day.    so do not get a snse of secutity that it will kill a mosquito that is passing a disease.  but as a place for them to lay eggs i also do not like the concept because when they do hatch, how many do escape.  

so i would put them out as described just as a bottle, not even cut it  and as soon as you have some swimming around empty it out and start over and.    basically my bird bath routine.    i know i am decreasing them but it is not by any means a means to an ends.    have had my bird bath for 12 years and counting.  

would like to see some of the expensive  ones out there that use infrared too.   from what i remember the mosquito is near sighted in the infrared region, so initial tracking is cabon dioxide, obviously your ankles do not give off CO2.  so when close it is fermones and infrared.  

here is a nice study about the distance they fly.    100 meters from the point so a total of 200 meters.

Mark-release-recapture study to measure dispersal of the mosquito Aedes aegypti in Cairns, Queensland, Australia.

Abstract
In Queensland, Australia, in response to isolated cases of dengue infection, larval control of the vector Aedes aegypti (L.) (Diptera: Culicidae) is targeted at breeding sites within 200 m of a case and interior spraying with a pyrethroid adulticide is targeted at premises within 100 m. To ascertain whether these limits are appropriate, we conducted a mark-release-recapture study to measure the dispersal of female Ae. aegypti in the city of Cairns where transmission occurs. Female mosquitoes reared from wild collected eggs were differentially marked with fluorescent dust depending on whether they were to be released blood-fed or non-blood-fed, and a total of 1,948 females was released. A total of 132 sticky ovitraps was set at 64 premises within a 200 m radius and collections of trapped adults were made at 5-15 days post-release. Sixty-seven females (3.4%) were recaptured, with the furthest being caught 200 m from the release point, and the mean distance travelled was 78 m. Overall, 23.1% of the recaptures outside the release site were taken beyond 100 m by day 15. Dispersal was comparable for both blood-fed and non-blood-fed releases. There was a significant tendency for dispersal to be in a north-westerly direction, probably because of the presence of numerous containers and heavy shading by trees in this direction and a busy road to the south of the release point that appeared to inhibit dispersal. The results suggest that adulticiding may have to be extended beyond 100 m if more than 8 days have elapsed since female Ae. aegypti could have fed upon a viraemic dengue case. The study also shows that dispersal is not random, and that it may be possible to maximize vector control by taking into account environmental factors that affect the direction of female mosquito flight.

here is a pro trap, it has adhesive on the alls to catch, note the charts the black is more effective.

Components include a 19 l black pail (a), a white pail lid (b), an 8.8 cm entrance diameter (c) a white capture surface (CS) coated with adhesive (d), PAM (e), a 2.5 l capacity infusion reservoir (f), and a screen barrier between the CS and the infusion reservoir (g).

The improved autocidal gravid ovitrap (AGO-B). Components include a 19 l black pail (a), a black pail lid (b), a 12.8 cm entrance diameter (c), a black capture surface (CS) coated with adhesive (d), PAM (e), a 9.3 l capacity infusion reservoir (f), and a screen barrier between the CS and the infusion reservoir (g). A conventional ovitrap is visible in the foreground of the photograph, on the right-hand side of the AGO-B.
