DIY: bugs trap / trampa para bichos

bichos en tus árboles? y no quieres usar pesticidas? aquí tienes la forma fácil de hacer una trampa casera para que los bichos no dañen los árboles frutales sin tener que usar insecticidas!
bugs in your trees? do not want to use pesticides? this is a easy homemade trap for the insects of your fruit trees without using pesticides!
esto es lo que necesitas:
cáñamo (también puedes usar hilaza o cualquier hilo grueso y resistente)
miel de abeja (una barata)
botella vacía de pet
tijeras de cocina

what you need:
fishing thread (you can use any yarn or heavy thread)
bee honey (a cheap one)
empty pet bottle
kitchen scissors
Con las tijeras corta la botella de forma que la parte inferior tenga el tamaño aproximado de 15 a 20 cm. Ver la foto. With the scissors cut the bottle so that the bottom is from 6 to 8 inchs (see the picture).
pon un cuarto de taza de miel en la botella
put a quarter cup of honey in the bottle
La parte de arriba la usarás como embudo. y la recortarás de modo que entre en la botella, cuidando que la boca no toque la miel. The top you will use it as a funnel. Cut a little the end to it fits in the bottle, be sure that the bottle mouth do not touch the honey. Usando el hilo o cáñamo, amarra la botella al árbol frutal que desees proteger tratando de que su base quede sentada en alguna rama.
Ahora ya puedes estar seguro de que los bichos vendrán pronto por miel y olvidarán las hojas, flores y frutos de tus árboles! Sólo cambia la miel cada que sea necesario.
Using the thread or yarn, fasten the bottle on the tree that you want to protect trying that the base is seated on a branch.
You can be sure now that the insects will come fast for the honey and they forget the leaves, flowers and fuits of your tree! Just replace the honey when it be necesary.
Espero que te sea útil esta pequeña trampa. Si tienes alguna duda contáctame. I hope this little trap will be helpful for you. If you have any question, just email me.
que tengas un buen día!

  1. I don't like to use pesticides, and this looks like a good alternative way to protect the plant. Thanks for the tutorial Rosa Maria :^)

    Didn't have a chance to check my mailbox this weekend for your package... I will try to make a trip out there this week!

  2. Great tip....I found an infestation of ants in my compost bin, maybe I will try this and see if it would work. It is very similar to the reproduction of an antique bee catcher I have. It is a glass jug with a hole in the curved bottom. It is curved just enough for some juice, I use cranberry, and the bees go in to get the juice and can't figure out how to go down again and get out.
    Can't wait to try this bug catcher on my ants! Thanks.
