Flys do not like moving air so make sure you have the fans going in your house

I have seen a trick floating around FB lately. Restaurants sometimes fill ziploc bags half full of water, then put 3 or 4 pennies in,  seal, and hang/tack on a post or wall. Something about it emulating a rival swarm and repelling the flies. Don't know if it works but the FB posts swear by it....LOL

I was just going to suggest the pennies in water trick. Supposedly works!

Keep the door shut, windows. Make sure garbage is tied out and put outside.

We do the same. It's really tacky but it works.
