The warmer spring weather means many of us will be gladly spending more time outdoors in the sunshine, hanging out with friends at a beer garden or even enjoying a BBQ or two.But as lovely as the heat can be, it does often bring unpleasant visitors that are difficult to get rid of - flies.The irritating pests can really ruin your day out as they buzz around your face, eyes and food and don't seem to go away.

However, there's a little-known hack that can help to keep them at bay - and it only costs 10p to do. That's according to Rob Chadwick, owner of CGC Interiors, who has explained thatusing a pint glass of tap water and a handful of pennies to keep flies away from your outdoor gathering this summer season.It means you can enjoy time spent outdoors with your loved ones without being driven back inside by flies, whether you're in your own garden or a beer garden.

All you need to do is take an ordinary pint glass and drop around four or five 2p coins in it, then fill it up with water and place on a sturdy surface.

According to Robert: “The hack works for two main reasons. Flies hate naturally hate water and, the color of copper, which is why 1-penny and 2-penny coins will work far better than more valuable silver or gold coins."The coins and water together look far larger to flies thanks to their thousands of small, stationary eyes packed together - it’s estimated each fly has between 3,000 and 6,000.
