Everyone loves summer season, the long outdoor conversations, a lot of natural vitamin D, etc. however; everyone dislikes the part with flies! These insects can be really annoying and disgusting. Moreover, a single fly can have more than 200 forms of harmful bacteria. These bacteria stick to the flies’ hairy legs and then transfer onto the food when they land on it. Luckily, there are ways that can help you get rid of these tiny insects efficiently. However, bug zappers and fly swatters leave a lot of cleaning up. There is another method that will repel flies from your yard altogether.
The fly chaser- DIY
- A plastic zip-up bag
- 4 pennies
Preparation: fill half the zip bag with water and then put the pennies in the bag and seal it good. Afterwards, hang the bag on a clothesline or near an open window.
How it works
Flies have compound eyes and the pennies take advantage of this through creation of prisms of light that confuse the flies and they see several plastic bags instead of one. Moreover, flies cannot stand water.
