Do flies buzz around your space? Do they try to get into your home? Do they circulate, endlessly, in your back (or front) patio?
We saw a neat trick we’d like to share: just hang a zip lock bag with water and a penny in an entryway. Apparently flies don’t like the refraction and reflection of the water-plus-penny and will stay away. Restaurants use this trick on their outside dining areas all the time; why shouldn’t you? If you’re trying to keep flies out of a large area, pin in a few bags throughout the lineup for a more effective barrier.
What’s your experience keeping bugs at bay – what works and what doesn’t?
Even NASA studies soil.
The Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) observatory – pictured here in California – will measure soil moisture around the world. “The data will be used to enhance scientists’ understanding of the processes that link Earth’s water, energy and carbon cycles.”
