Well about a month ago the flies were so brutal I though what the heck I'll give it a try, if it doesn't work I'll just take the bag down and no one would be the wiser of my foolish plans. Guess what....this stupid trick works, I mean really really works. I haven't seen a single fly since I hung that bag. We've had many discussions on how this thing could possible work but have not come up with the answer. I'd sure like to know the scientific answer to this!
So if you have flies on your porch and can't enjoy the day because of them...hang a ziplock baggy full of water up and your problem will be solved.
Here are some neat pictures of woodpeckers:
and some flowers:
