    Want to get rid of house flies?

    I hate the things. And my dogs stands the dog door looking out, and let them in. I tried this in last June and have not had a fly since then. Hang a brown paper bag over your door. I filled mine with plastic bags, dent the corners in and the flies think it's a paper wasp nest. No more flies!!

    I am not sure if it will fly proof a barn, but it sure won't hurt. I am amazed at the difference it made here. The grill is on the porch, and no more flies near it. I love it!

    I haven't had time to try it, LouAnn.

    The flies are awful this year, too.

    I'm going to make time to do it tomorrow afternoon or Saturday.

    You are SO lucky. They are all over the barn. They're crawling around the edges of the horses eyes, they're all over the horses so they stomp all day long and flip their tails to get them off. We spray the horses but there's so many of them, it's almost a losing battle.

    DS ordered a fly spraying system for the barn but he needs more parts to finish it.

    No flies or mosquitoes! Now if there were no wasp or yellow jackets I would really be happy.

    I hate the flying critters. Ground hornets got me the other day. They really hurt. All I did was walk by the bush they live under.

    I would have been in the ER. I'm allergic to them. This was 2 years ago when I got stung on the finger.

    Bill, we have all of them.
