New Delhi:

How does it feel to have a fly as a company? It sure is an horrid experience and no one would like to have one. 

But what to do when flies neither understand nor respect our feelings?  

Here I tell you a simple formula to keep flies at bay. It has been successfully tried and tested backed with an interesting scientific explanation.

You'll need:

A few transparent plastic bags, water, and coins

What to do: 

1. Fill the bags with water.

2. Place 4-6 coins in every bag.

3. Tie off the bags and hang in the infested areas.

How it works:

The millions of molecules in the water create a special prism effect breaking the light in a very special way. When coins are added, the effect of light being broken is enhanced randomly. 

Flies have a very special way of seeing. Their eyes are made of thousands of identical lenses through which they see thousands of reflections of the same image.

To a fly that simple bag of water appears like lots of disco balls reflecting bright light and movement in a way that causes them to feel dizzy and disoriented. Under such conditions, they end up being distracted all the time and feeling vulnerable to predators hence they just fly away.
