Shoo Flies Method from Handy Tip Email-Urban Legend or Not?

Charlotte's Home Remedy for Fly Invasion
Sat down for tea on Dorothy's porch and saw she actually made a fly deterrent.

Dorothy’s Back Porch Fly Control- results not in at this time

V sent an email the other day with the zip lock plastic bag, pennies and water tip.  She had received it from a friend who had received it from someone else. You know how it goes around.  And this particular email (SNOPES says it is UNDETERMINED)I forwarded to Dorothy and I went to Dorothy’s for tea today and what did I see?  An actual zip lock bag with pennies and water, reflecting the setting sun.  SNOPES has not confirmed this email as true/or false. There is a website called How to get rid of stuff, too. Click link for the info on how to get rid of flies. Will get the report from Dorothy on whether or not this method repels flies.

  1. I’m glad to be part of an experiment especially when it comes from such a great friend, great photographer who can even make a zip bag with pennies look interesting. I like the little sparklies in the water–and the wood. I ‘love’ wood.
    Actualy, I’ve seen no flies–or bees–since putting it up. I don’t kill bees because I know they are important pollinators so if one comes on the porch I get a towel,catch it and then open the door and let it go free.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
