Penny’s Tips Volume 46

Hi everyone!   If you follow my tip today, you won’t need to have a fly swatter anymore.

Just take a ziplock bag and add water and at least 4 pennies ( not me).  Then you hang it above your door. Something about the flies complex eyes makes them move away because it magnifies the light entering their eyes. Too bad it doesn’t work on nasty mosquitoes.

    1. We haven’t done it, but know people that have and it worked. Not sure what to do with gnats. XO

  2. WOW! Brilliant! I’ve never heard of that – pennies come in handy (you come in handy too but not for keeping flies away of course!!!!!).

    Hugs, Teddy

  3. I’ve heard of this tip before and it works. Funny how that happens.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. My best to your mom. ♥

  4. My human heard about this trick just recently. We will have to remember it next time there are too many flies around – fortunately there haven’t been as many lately.

  5. That is very interesting. Wonder if it works on gnats – they are so annoying here at this time of the year.

    1. We don’t like them either, but we have been lucky lately at not seeing any.

  6. This sounds very interesting. Mom would love to get rid of the flies, but we like swatting and killing them, and sometimes we have them for a snack. YUMMY! XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  7. That’s a fantastic tip, Penny! We don’t have so much flies in the house, only sometimes when the wind blows them in and then Granny leads them the way out again, which they do, but we sure will remember this when needed. Extra Pawkisses to all of you🐾😽💞

  8. Well, Penny that is an interesting tip. We sure could have used that back in old Missouri. I don’t know why but we don’t have any flies here. Plenty of other annoying critters like ants. Maybe the lizards eat the flies. I will have to tell our Missouri peeps about your tip!

  9. Penny, what would I do without your tips? It seems like a fly gets in my house on a daily basis, and the furbabies go crazy chasing it around. I need to try this penny trick. Perhaps that will help my house stay standing. Purrs!
