Keep flies away the natural way…

I recently saw a post on facebook about this trick…and I never thought about blogging about it until now, since so many people had never heard of this, I thought it would be worth sharing.

My wife’s family has been doing this for many years to control flies the natural way. I was skeptical until we tried it ourselves. It really does work. We would just put in 1 penny and sometimes a crumbled up piece of aluminum foil in a bag, filled it with water and then hung it by a tree, under a patio umbrella or wherever pesky flies would be. It definitely works!

Below are comments on this fly control idea.

Zip-lock water bags: #1 Says: I tried the zip lock bag and pennies this weekend. I have a horse trailer. The flies were bad while I was camping. I put the baggies with pennies above the door of the LQ. NOT ONE FLY came in the trailer.The horse trailer part had many. Not sure why it works but it does!

#2 Says:Fill a zip lock bag with water and 5 or 6 pennies and hang it in the problem area. In my case it was a particular window in my home. It had a slight passage way for insects. Every since I have done that, it has kept flies and wasps away. Some say that wasps and flies mistake the bag for some other insect nest and are threatened.

#3 Says:I swear by the plastic bag of water trick. I have them on porch and basement. We saw these in Northeast Mo. at an Amish grocery store& have used them since. They say it works because a fly sees a reflection& won’t come around.

#4 Says:Regarding the science behind zip log bags of water? My research found that the millions of molecules of water presents its own prism effect and given that flies have a lot of eyes, to them it’s like a zillion disco balls reflecting light, colors and movement in a dizzying manner. When you figure that flies are prey for many other bugs, animals, birds, etc., they simply won’t take the risk of being around that much perceived action. We went from hundreds of flies to seeing the occasional one, but he didn’t hang around long.

Thoughtful Tuesday ~ The Final Salute


 

Minutes after her husband’s casket arrived at the Reno airport, Katherine Cathey fell onto the flag. 

 

The night before the burial of her husband 2nd Lt. James Cathey of the United States Marine Corps, killed in Iraq, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of “Cat”, and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept.

” I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it” she said.

” I think that’s what he would have wanted”.

No words can describe this final salute.  

How honorable:  Being married to this very faithful and loving wife and the Marine standing next to the casket watching over both of them.

God Bless Our Troops!

How to…with Caruso ♫☼♣↓♥


Do you want to know how you can add hearts, music notes and other cool symbols to your Facebook status, texts and chats?

Courtesy of my wife, Cris. There are three ways!

1. You can Download the many apps.

2. You can Copy or Paste. This doesn’t always work if the symbols are all grouped together. Try pressing “Ctrl” + “Z” to solve the problem.

3. Do it Yourself. You can type the symbols from your keyboard by using the ‘alt’ key!

If you have a laptop or computer, make sure you ‘Num Lock’ key is ON. The ‘Num Lock’ button is on the top right of your keyboard.

Next, hold down ‘Alt’ key as you type. The ‘Alt” button is in the bottom left of your keyboard, and press type the following:

Hold ‘Alt’ then type any numbers…

Alt and 1 makes ☺
Alt and 2 makes ☻
Alt and 3 makes ♥
Alt and 4 makes ♦
Alt and 5 makes ♣
Alt and 6 makes ♠
Alt and 7 makes •
Alt and 8 makes ◘
Alt and 9 makes ○
Alt and 10 makes ◙
Alt and 11 makes ♂
Alt and 12 makes ♀
