Put it in the kitchen: after an hour you won’t see a fly anymore.

 Implementing the Anti-Fly Technique

Gather the Essentials: You will need:

A clear plastic bag


A few shiny pennies

Prepare the Anti-Fly Bag:

Fill the plastic bag halfway with water.

Place the pennies inside the bag.

Tie the bag securely, ensuring that there are no leaks.

Strategic Placement:

Hang the bag in areas where flies frequently visit, such as near windows, doors, or food storage areas.

The Science Behind the Hack

The secret behind this hack lies in the way flies perceive the bag of water and pennies. Flies have compound eyes, which create a reflection on the water bag that is magnified by the pennies. This reflection is perceived as a threat by the flies, deterring them from entering the area.

Additional Tips for a Fly-Free Kitchen

Maintain Cleanliness: Regularly clean countertops and ensure no food particles are left exposed.

Use Screens: Install screens on windows and doors to prevent flies from entering.

Dispose of Garbage Regularly: Ensure that your garbage bins are covered and emptied regularly.

Use Herbs: Place herbs like basil, lavender, or mint, which are natural fly repellents, around the kitchen.


Creating a comfortable and fly-free kitchen environment enhances your cooking and dining experience. This simple yet effective hack, along with maintaining regular cleanliness, will ensure your kitchen stays a no-fly zone, allowing you to create delectable dishes without the bother of pesky insects.
