    Question Tape a cup to your head for deer flys??

    Hey Group,
    Lookin' for an old thread about keeping deer flys off of you by taping a plastic bier cup to your head. I was sure it was from Alec Sparks. Search no good. Maybe it was afore the great server purge? Anyone know about keeping those nasty flys from gnawing the meat off your bones?
    Thank you

    Ken

    Dang Ken... The title of your thread had mental images of you with an athletic supporter on your noggin... Not good.

    Not that a red Solo cup would be a whole lot better

    Ken, why not just fill the cup with beer and sit in the screen porch. No flys................

    Ken the jest of the trap is to use a blue solo cup (it needs to be blue) & spray the cup with an insect adhesive. See https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...7UgVG0zc6XYHqg
