A sustainable way to scare flies away, inspired on mexican ingenuity.


The use of a plastic bag full of water hanging from the ceiling of several taco kiosks on the streets, is a traditional way to scare flies away in most of the food markets on urban Mexico. The refraction of the water, amplifies the colors and movements for the sensible eyes of a fly reflected on this sphere, scaring it away, making it the perfect sustainable pesticide, on a way that the insect remains harmless and the food is free of flies.

The Anti Fly Sphere is entirely made by hand at a family owned glass workshop in Mexico City. Is made out of Borosilicate Glass, which is thinner, lighter and can resist abrupt thermal changes. Watch the video below to see how is made.

There are two versions of the Anti-Fly, the 2.0 version, with sandblasted top and nylon rope and the mexican inspired 3.0 version, with clear finish and a heavy duty leather rope. BUY THEM HERE!
