    If not, what are they for?  On outer doors, that is.

    yes, that's the point.  Or those strips of coloured plastic ones like my nan had across her pantry, as it were

    My mum and dad used to have one in the 70s.  As far as I remember they didn't really work!  Although I used to plait them, so that probably didn't help!

    Thanks Lois.  I think I could probably just about cope with a beaded one (though not one with a pattern) but probably not with the strips of plastic.  We're about to move house and the back door opens up from the kitchen, so I want a way to have the door open in the summer without making it open house for the neighbourhood flies Laugh

    AliLindsey, I'm pretty sure I've done the same - I'll have to try and resist the temptation!

    I'm not sure if you can get them in the UK, but here we can buy window stickers, usually flowers or butterflies, that attract flies, and then have poison in them which kills the flys (but they aren't sticky like fly paper). You put them up in the top corners of the window, and they don't look too hideous, and they really work. it does mean you end up with a mountain of little fly corpses (or you would if you didn't pick them up).

    We have a big sliding door from our kitchen out onto the balcony, and it is pretty much open all summer, and we don't have much of a fly problem at all when we use the stickers.

    My MIL has this sort of thing, in 5 or 6 strips: http://www.flyscreenqueen.co.uk/Heavy%20Duty%20Panel%20Doors.html

    Flowery i've bought those in the UK, perhaps from lakeland? or a garden centre, with sunflowers on them.

    These are the ones we have, from Raid.

    Flowery, I've got a couple of those on my windows, but I still get loads of flies in.  I'll probably get a couple anyway - they're all weapons in the war Laugh

    How about something like this instead - http://www.habitat.co.uk/fcp/product/browse/Curtain-panel/988020

    We have these at our french doors and we don't get a single fly in.
