    I save the zip lock baggies when we thaw something out of the freezer. I wash them out if they are not clear and then let them dry. I feed my dogs on the back porch and flies are a real problem. My back porch is open. In the summer, every time I go out or come in through the back door at least 6 flies would get in. Then you got to get a fly swatter and swat them.
    Now here comes the you ain’t going to believe this part. I took 2 small finishing nails and nailed them about a 1/4 less than the width of a sandwich bag. One for each side of the bag. I did this on each side of the kitchen window which looks out onto the back porch. I did this on each side of the outside of the door on the back porch. I did this every 3 feet on the porch roof. You got to put the nails up first. Then you take the clean bags and fill about 3/4 full of water. Then you press each corner of the bag onto a nail. When you get done, you got a hanging bag of clear water. I do this each march before the flies start coming out. Here come the other part of you ain’t going to believe this. No more flies on the back porch. They don’t get in my dog food bowls. I go in and out mostly at the back door. That means that there are way less flies in the house. Now you are thinking how does this work. Nobody knows for sure. The leading theory is that the water in the bags acts like a prism and devides the light into all the colors. The theory says that the light devided into the basic colors blinds the flies. They can’t see. It is almost like a force field for flies. The bags have to be clean and let the sun light hit the water.
    If the bags get dusty the effect stops working.
    When I read that article, I thought this is a bunch of bs. Then I thought what have I got to loose, not much. It works. During the summer I can stand at my kitchen window and watch the flies fly in. They will veer off. They won’t land on the porch. The bags have to be clean and let the sun light hit them. If the bags get dirty, you either need to clean them or use some new ones. I am a skeptic by heart. I tried this and it works. look it up.
