Keeping the Flies AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
« on: June 20, 2014, 07:24:55 PM »
 
    This a kinda of a confession. We live on 23 acres of 2/3 forest. So I like to sit outside in the evening and chill with the forest. But, we have hundres of flys this year, so last evening I started to event a tool to keep the flies away. This is my first attempt.

  It worked ok but the flies kept getting on my right side, so I changed the structure.

That was much better coming from the top, but the flies kept getting on my legs. So this is the plan thet works.

    All you need is an old trash can, and a chair with arms, and old enough one to used for this experiment, and a box fan. The box fan was used in every experiment, it just took this last configuration to keep the flys off me. Imagine, living with a vow of poverty in an intentional community, and trying our best to not misuse "Mothers resourses", and here I am using electrictiy to keep the fly's off me!!!!!!! :) LOL

Fans don't take a lot of electric power to run, a Micro Hydro power system would generate enough power if you have a stream on the property.

However, if you want to get off electricity entirely you could power the fan mechanically with either a Spring Wind Up assembly or a Tower Counterweight assembly.

 

Really though, why not just use a portable PopUp Gazebo with Mosquito Netting?

This one is $36.45 from Amazon.com -- umbrella not included
Making pigs fly is easy... that is, of course, after you have built the catapult....
