|MadSci Network: Zoology|
We live in the Ozarks, and the old-timers and environmentally minded groupies in our area have told us that hanging a zip-lock bag of water above our entrance door will deter the flies entering our home. There are a lot of flies this year with the drought again, but it seems to work very well. Now we want to know why! None of the people that told us about it have a clue and I didn't find anything like this in your archives. I did look.
