How to keep Flies out of your Kitchen

Clear Plastic Gloves filled with water will apparently scare away bugs

The other day I was at a local Hwae House (Korean Raw Fish) and I saw these gloves hanging near the kitchen. I inquired into why they were there and the owner said that they keep flies away because flies are scared of the hand (strangely, I don’t know anyone that can kill a fly with their bare hands) and of their reflection in the water.

    This has been commonly done in Thailand ever since I could remember (which has been over 30 yrs) as well. The people here use regular small plastic bag that you would put food in instead of clear plastic gloves though. Still, same intention, same effect, and same result. Very interesting indeed.

    Happening here at the local Jjimjilbangs here in NYC. I can safely say that they don't work over buffet tables.
