FLIES will never come in your house again! Pennies hung in a baggie of water near the door. Oklahoma people and restaurant owners do this and it really works.

Best Way to Banish Bugs From Your Next BBQ

All-natural Mason Jar Mosquito Repellant. Non-toxic, No DEET.

Want to live in a mosquito-free yard? I have one word. GARLIC! I buy the biggest jar of garlic that I can find and sprinkle it around my yard. I even poor out the “garlic water” close to my back patio door. Mosquitos hate the smell of garlic more than anything and will do anything to escape the smell. Works for 3 months. I do this monthly for $5
