Anybody else being plagued with flies at the moment? It doesn’t seem to matter if I wash everything down with antibacterial agents or not, they just love to come into my space. Disgusting insects, landing on everything we avoid in an instant only to have them fly into our spaces- yuk!
I have really had enough going around with my fly swat and i’ve decided to take action and do something about it!
When I lived abroad I remembered seeing yellow bags of liquid hanging around villas which was the key to reducing the pests.
I thought I would share the solution with you –
What you need-
- Strong clear plastic bags, preferably ones that you can tie up or seal
- Yellow colouring
Mix water and food colouring and pour into your plastic bag. Tie the ends and thread your string through the tied ends and hang up in windows or your back doors that you leave open.
The flies apparently are scared of the own magnified reflection and mostly stay away.
Sounds good to me, I just wish I had remembered this earlier!
