What drives me up the wall is how when I’m at home and I open my door for just two seconds, flies will make their way inside. It’s as if they were waiting for that very moment to sneak into my home. Yet somehow all of that ninja-like speed and ingenuity suddenly disappears when those same flies want to leave my house. Ugh…
So what to do? Well, if you like having exploded insect particles all over the place, you can get a bug zapper. But if you want a less violent and passive approach, perhaps you should give the following anti-fly contraption a try.
Here’s what you’ll need…

“Here’s the reason behind the effectiveness of homemade repellents. Flies have visual receptors called ommatidia. Unlike humans, they don’t have pupils that controls the amount of light that enters their eyes. Our pupils do, their ommatidium do not. Therefore, the reflective light or flickering light “scares” them because they can’t focus. Another homemade repellent is the use of an old CD. Just hang one nearby and allow our wonderful sun do its magic! The spinning CD that reflects the sunlight is a knockout for those pesky flies!!! Trust me…it works.”
