Zip Lock Baggies...........who knew?

“We went with friends to a restaurant on Sunday for lunch and sat in the patio section beside the store. We happened to notice zip lock baggies pinned to a post and a wall.

This morning I checked this out on Google.
Below are comments on this fly control idea. I'm now a believer!
