Small dishes of cider vinegar with a drop of dish detergent liquid. They're attracted to the scent of the cider vinegar, the dish soap breaks up the surface tension of the liquid so the bug sinks instead of landing on the meniscus. 
 I don't know, pears in red wine might qualify for example. Have to run it past this month's host.
I like powdered smoke. Bit more versatile. It's still made from liquid smoke,   https://www.spicesetc.com/category/s?keyword=smoke+powder   clumps up pretty hard overtime, but can be broken up and use easily enough.

 According to Harold McGee, it doesn't work at all. The butter solids still burn at the same temp they always do. 
Lots of great entries.  I've been reviewing the posts and pictures.

What do you want to do with them that a standard tortilla won't do? The wide availability of quality tortillas just seems to me you're trying to solve a problem that you shouldn't even be having.    Tortilla presses are also easily available so you could make them as fresh as you want with great pliability.    Alternatively, you already mentioned this would essentially be a crepe. How does a crepe not serve the purpose then?
