Zip Lock Baggies...........who knew?
Image

We went with friends to a restaurant on Sunday for lunch and sat in the patio section beside the store. We happened to notice zip lock baggies pinned to a post and a wall. The bags were half filled with ...water, each contained 4 pennies, and they were zipped shut. Naturally we were curious! The owner told us that these baggies kept the flies away! So naturally we were even more curious! We actually watched some flies come in the open window, stand around on the window sill, and then fly out again. And there were no flies in the eating area! This morning I checked this out on Google.
Below are comments on this fly control idea. I'm now a believer!

Zip-lock water bags: #1 Says: I tried the zip lock bag and pennies this weekend. I have a horse trailer. The flies were bad while I was camping. I put the baggies with pennies above the door of the LQ. NOT ONE FLY came in the trailer.The horse trailer part had many. Not sure why it works but it does!

#2 Says:Fill a zip lock bag with water and 5 or 6 pennies and hang it in the problem area. In my case it was a particular window in my home. It had a slight passage way for insects. Every since I have done that, it has kept flies and wasps away. Some say that wasps and flies mistake the bag for some other insect nest and are threatened.

#3 Says:I swear by the plastic bag of water trick. I have them on porch and basement. We saw these in Northeast Mo. at an Amish grocery store& have used them since. They say it works because a fly sees a reflection& won't come around.

#4 Says:Regarding the science behind zip log bags of water? My research found that the millions of molecules of water presents its own prism effect and given that flies have a lot of eyes, to them it's like a zillion disco balls reflecting light, colors and movement in a dizzying manner. When you figure that flies are prey for many other bugs, animals, birds, etc., they simply won't take the risk of being around that much perceived action. I moved to a rural area and thought these "hillbillies" were just yanking my city boy chain but I tried it and it worked immediately! We went from hundreds of flies to seeing the occasional one, but he didn't hang around long.

Dit lyk so, mens kan seker silver en koper in die sakkies sit.

Moet dit Zip lock wees?
Sal die gewone kooperasie sakkies ook werk?

Smirre, ek dink dit kan werk, probeer dit en sien. Ek dink enige deurskynende sakkies sal werk :)

Ek staan redelik skepties teenoor die hele storie, so ek dink jy kan maar netsowel die gewone kooperasie sakkies gebruik, hulle sal net so min werk as die Zip Lock sakkies.

Die navorsing wat die man gedoen het was sekerlik wetenskaplik? Want al sien vlieë besonder goed dink ek nie hulle kan tot op molukulere vlak sien hoe die prisma effek (wat jou 'n reenboog gee) 'n "zillion" oë maak wat die vlieë verwar nie. Nee, ek sluk nie die een nie.

Hoop iemand hier toets die storie en gee trugvoer, of kom met 'n meer geloofwardige teorie uit oor hoekom dit sal werk.

Kan seker nie slegter werk as daai deurskynende plasiese bottels water wat mense op hulle grasperke gesit het om honde te weerhou om op die gras te bollie nie. Daai het ek getry net om uit te vind die honde bollie op die bottels, soos,teikens wat jy vir hulle maak.

Wonder of dit vir brommers ook sal help - wat soms pla by die slagplek?
