You don't need a stink factor to attract the mosquitoes to lay, just
some water that has a bit of algae or life to it.  A spoonful of soil
or compost, or just a pinch of grass clippings will do it.  Even a tiny
bit of chemical fertilizer.  Or you can just let the bucket sit out for
a while, and it will get a bit of dust, organic debris and algae.
