It's utter horseshiat. I cannot believe I live in a time when we have multiple robots on Mars, yet things like this aren't immediately dismissed.

I put a beer bottle with a tiny amount of beer in it and put it on the kitchen table and it killed ten flies over the weekend.

I tried it once after people swore it works like magic. It does not, in fact, work like magic/keep flies away. At all. Bunk video is bunk.

You think people would do that? Just go on the internet and tell lies?

I just use a sock full of pennies and smash those little turd eating disease vectors into a pulp.

The rest of our Thanksgiving guests weren't quite so amused after I hit the cranberry sauce full force.

I first read this as "putting penises in a baggie keeps flies away" and was very confused.

Do you know those fly trap bags? The ones you put some water in and hang to attract and catch flies? It states right on the bag you should hang them away from where you are going to physically be to draw the flies away from you!. The bait is stinky and after you get a bunch of dead flies in it it gets ultra rank. You want the stinky bag to be over there in the corner of the yard so you don't smell it and the flies are over there too!

I have watched one neighbor hang one on her porch near the front door every year for the past ten years. Then she complains that the flies are still getting in her house and that everyone complains about the smell. Because drawing flies to your door is your goal, right? The first few years I kept saying things about how they work best, and where they would be most effective and she just doesn't seem to understand how they work so if she wants to do things wrong I don't try to stop her.

Eh haole boy, you like trap one fly li'dat? Yeh real easy cuz, jus do em island style like we do in Hawai'i nei. Get one pickle jar, punch some holes in da lid wit screwdrivah. Den jus trow one black banana piece inside, ah? if you no wen get pickle jar, jus pour in a little vinegar - maybe 1/4" li'dat. Flies come, crawl in, too dumb fo' get out. Once you flytrap come pau, easy does it, cuz da dead flies in da jar keep attracting more. Aloha!

Call me old fashioned...but wouldn't these work a treat?

Saw clear plastic baggies full of pennies and water hanging over doors all over the place when we visited South Dakota on a road trip last year. Most of the "shabby little house turned into sad little museum" places had them, and so did many of the mom & pop restaurants. I finally asked an old lady what it was about, and she swore that it worked.

Where do you put the pennies in them?

If you used 5-cent pieces instead you'd have nickel bags all over the place. Watch out for the cops!

I have never seen pennies used, but I saw the bags of water in a little seafood shack by the side of the road in Oregon. The place reeked of fish, and there were flies all over outside, but inside where these bags were, no flies.  Seems like BS to me too but I can't explain why the place wasn't full of flies.

Seriously, I was half expecting something like that to be the "hack". :-)

You just have to catch one. Nail its hide to your kitchen wall as an omen. The rest will leave in a hurry.

While drinking outside I pour beer into the cap and sit it 10 feet away , That beer is for the flies , the rest is for me . It works out for both of us .

In Wyoming they call that a "South Dakota Savings Account".

No, but it does beg the question, when someone eventually asks you to "eat a bag of dicks," and you have one right there, how do you eat them?  Do you treat it like a snack bag, and take the penises out one-by-one and eat t them that way?  Do you try and pour the whole back down your throat like pepperidge farm goldfish?  Maybe you cut one corner off and just suck on the whole bag?

need a bag of pennies to keep flies away? Take a bag of pennies to keep flies away. Got a bag of pennies to keep flies away? Leave a bag of pennies to keep flies away.
