Home made fly control ?

Its summer time ( almost) which means the doors open a thousand times with the little ones in and out ughh ! I am trying to find a good solution for flies, anyone have a solution that works with out having to use nasty fly strips of harmful chemical sprays ?

Put a ziplock bag filled (or at least partially filled) with water in it above your doors in question. This creates an optical illusion in the fly's eyes and they will not cross it. I am not saying this will stop every fly but it will vastly cut down on fly's.

Yep, we do this too and put a penny in the bag with the water. It does a great job at picnics, and a decent job over the doors.
