Home Remedy for Outdoor Fly Repellent
Yall its HOT here in Texas and we have flies so bad this year. Seems like they are invading us by droves...or would that be swarms? Anyway I have a DIY remedy for outside use.
According to Pinterest flies HATE pine-sol! I decided to give this homemade repellent a try, never hurts to try huh? It only costs me $2 for this experiment. I was at Walmart so I picked up the spray bottle for .97 cents and the "PineGlo" for .98 cents. Cheap enough for an experiment.
This is a 50/50 mixture of pine-sol and water. My spray bottle is marked clearly with 24 oz, but also says it holds 32 oz. Anywho.....
I poured in the pineglo in to the 12 oz mark.
I added water to the 24 oz mark and then replaced the sprayer nozzle onto the bottle.
Mark your spray bottle accordingly so you know what you're spraying.
Spray the area outside that you will want to keep flies away from.
I sprayed all around the seating area on the patio and then sprayed the perimeter of the back door going into the house too. Right away the flies were beginning to disappear. I was impressed! I'm not going to tell you that ALL the flies disappeared, because they didn't, but there were very few and it was a much more pleasant atmosphere to sit and enjoy our patio.
Please visit our blog for more tips to use this mixture for. Thanks for looking!
