what is it they find so loathsome about a flaccid sack of water, anyway:
Is this strange Brazilian MTV ad related to this strange paper in An. Soc. Entomol. Bras.? Curiously, "Transparent plastic bag with water showed repellency to the house fly greater than 30%" around a black light lamp, which I assume was used to attract the insects in the first place, but I can't read Portuguese, so perhaps I'll never know.
What I do know is that the strange idea of hanging plastic bags half-filled with water to repel the common house fly has had me totally sidetracked from whatever it was that I was meaning to do.
