None of the above. Keep the doors shut and the flies won't come in

My sister SWEARS by hanging a few water filled plastic bottles around her porch works. I haven't tried it, but, several other people have told me the same thing.

Every time I am bugged by a pesky fly and I grab a fly swatter, the stupid thing hides until I put it down!

I love the jedi mind trick you do with flies at night.
Turn off all the lights, then turn on the one light near the front door. They'll follow you. Then, open the door, turn on the outside light, and turn off the inside light. They'll fly outside.
"Go to the light, Carol Ann!" Oh, I guess that's poltergeist.
