How-To: Repel Flies With Only A Bag Of Water
Turns out you don't need expensive chemical sprays
We've taught you how to get rid of cockroaches, mice and mosquitoes, but we seem to have forgotten a household pest that can be just as dangerous—houseflies. These flying creatures breed bacteria rapidly and can cause a ton of diseases. Thankfully, we found a clever trick that can help you get rid of them and you'd be surprised to know that all you need is a bag full of water.
Since flies have a number of lenses in each eye, they are sensitive to light patterns and movement as they tend to think anything that moves is a predator. The bag of water will reflect light as it swings from where it is hung which confuse the flies and cause them to stay away. Excited to try it? Here's a step-by-step guide you can follow:
- A large Ziploc bag
- 1 rubber band
- Fill up the Ziploc bag to 2/3 with water and tie at the top with a rubber band to seal it.
- Tie a string firmly around the top—making sure it is tight and unable to slip off.
- Hang the bag in areas where flies like to roam such as doors or open windows.
