How to keep FLIES away from your food! Answered

I discovered this little "trick" (quite by accident) when I was grilling last week. 

Flies do not like onions!  A few slices of raw, sliced red onion in the immediate vicinity of your food will keep disgusting flies from dining on your edibles.

Onions are so effective, I'm tempted to make a pair of hoop earrings out of 'em!  

Maybe onion perfume?

oh, the possibilities! ;-D

I don't know about this. I have seen flies on onions. Especially when they're rotten.
And they just love those onion flower plants you see in some parks on display in the flower garden.

This may follow in the same vein as wearing the purple earrings..

A countrymen of mine who noticed a strange custom of placing a
bucket of raw meat near a slavic wedding assembly was informed
that the ancient practice kept the flies from bothering the bride..

There are only so many flies in one area. The meat is far more attractive than people. This actually works, just make sure to get rid of the meat before it starts rotting...
