You don't put anything in the bottles. I think what keeps them in is they don't know where to go, as they are looking for light to determine the way out.

I used a glass jar for my trap part and don't think they can crawl up it, although I did have one escape.

To secure the jar, you drill a hole in the jar lid that matches the bottom hole on the trap box and I used a staple gun to attach it.

The commercial ones I saw used a mason jar and the outer ring/lid part which already has a hole in it and they were attached to the box with small nails.

I just got the modified prototype up this weekend and started catching them. I made another for a neighbor, but the entry holes are too small. I will fix his later this week.

Make sure the holes are 1/2" angled upward and place a piece of plywood on top that extends out past the edges giving an overhang on all sides.


Why the overhang Bret?
