Fly Spray, Homemade

$

Cost

There are a wide variety of homemade fly sprays. None of these contain ingredients that should be harmful in moderate amounts. However, in my experience, mixes like these are only marginally helpful. They should be used in combination with other fly control methods, including a proper manure management program.

Combine ingredients and use in spray bottle.

2 cups white vinegar

1 cup water

1 cup Avon Skin So Soft

1 Tablespoon eucalyptus oil

Fly Repellent 2:

2 teaspoon lemon dish detergent

1 cup cider vinegar

1 cup water
