A WOMAN has gone viral on TikTok after sharing a brilliant hack to keep pesky flies away from your home – and yes, you can even keep the windows open.
With summer now in full force, there’s another, less welcome guest – annoying flies buzzing their way into your property.
And one social media user, @curiousk_24, was also familiar with the problem – until she discovered a genius trick to repel them.
The woman also shared the hack on TikTok, where it’s gone viral, racking up more than a whopping 1.1million views in just three days.
The trick, she claimed, is brilliant for those who prefer to keep their windows open during the warm months.
”If you have a problem with flies coming in your house in the summer and you like your doors and windows open, fill a bag of water.
”Hang it up somewhere near the opening by your door or your windows.”
She then proceeded to explain the logic behind this trick: ”The flies think it’s wasps’ nests – and will not come anywhere near.
”I’ve had it up for 4 days and my doors and windows wide open and I’m amazed as not a single fly or wasp or bee in my house it works,” the TikTok user continued in the comments.
Although the simple life-changing trick worked for her, the water bag hack might not perform so well for everyone, she warned.

Another commented: ”ahh I wonder why my neighbour had that out of his window [laughing emoji] thank you I know now.”
However, not everyone was sold on the trick and some even claimed it was a total flop.
”Tried it and it doesn’t work,” read a negative review.
Someone else was sceptical and pointed out: ”So what I’m hearing is that it will attract wasps instead.”
