Getting Rid of Flies : Fly Solution

After desperately trying to find something to get rid of the flies I finally stumbled across this one. I wasn't sure it would really work, but it did! My poor Golden Retriever was covered in flies even after many baths. I lightly sprayed it on her (avoiding her eyes) and she now has some relief from these awful nasty flies. With a few drops of dish soap and water I finally found a solution to our fly problem. I also sprayed the entire patio area and screen door to keep them from coming into the house. I only wish I found this solution sooner! I did have to repeat a few time during the day, but it worked!

Dish Soap, Water and a water bottle that is all you need.
A few drops of liquid dish soap

    Same solution also kills crickets, grasshoppers, ants, and earwigs when sprayed directly on them. Works almost instantly. (You may have to add more than just a few drops of liquid dish soap, though).
