Making Mosquito Traps to Use in a Hot Climate

I want to make mosquito traps, but I live in the southwest and it gets well over 100 during the day and we're lucky to hit 80 @ night in the summer time. Will this extreme heat kill the yeast?

Yeast will live in a wide range of temperature. It goes dormant below about 70F and die off above 140F or so. Yeast is the most active in the 85F-95F range. We store it in a refrigerator for months. In such wide extreams as you mention you may wish to double the yeast; but by all means keep the trap out of the sun and as always, 25 to 30 feet away from where people congregate.
