I like seeing them die
I'm amazed though, that the water
in the bag thing actually works. I was curious, but when I saw a clear plastic bag half filed with water
tacked to the wall of a local bar, I decided to give it a try.
During daylight hours, there were 12-20 flies in my cabin
at any given moment. I put some seawater in a Ziploc freezer
bag, and tied it in the middle of my companionway
. Almost immediately, the number of flies dropped to 3-5. And it stayed that way all day!
I have no idea what the mechanism is, whether the distorted light bothers them, or they get creeped out by water suspended in midair. But I'm telling you, it works here in Key West
Key. I don't even mind bumping my head
on it when I come out to my cockpit.
Anyway, I finally found a fly swatter today (I couldn't believe how many places didn't have them), and I am blissfully free of flies as the sun goes down.
Oh, there's one. I can handle that.
Thanks everyone for your input.
