    Fly repellent - YES IT WORKS! First saw this used in Mexico at resort where chefs cooked outside! I've used this for backyard patio & cookouts. Some suggest to add 5 pennies. plastic bags partially filled with water hanging over every stall. He explained that a clear bag of water with a penny at the bottom would repel the flies very effectively. He went on to explain that the “eye” of a fly is actually hundreds of eyes and the reflection of light on the bag of water keeps them away.

    Keep flies away with a clear plastic bag filled with water with penny at bottom! It's completely non-toxic, and you can picnic fly-free! Fly repellent - pinner said "I had to repin this again for you to see. YES IT WORKS! Oh my, it looks hokie but our temps have been upper 90's and no flies in my back yard have been spotted. I spoke with a women who grew up on a dairy farm and she swears by it. She said they used 5 pennies. Go figure."
