All Natural Fly Repellants

Room Spray


18 oz (2 1/4 cups) white vinegar
2 Tbsp dish washing soap

1 Mix the ingredients in a spray bottle.

2 Shake well to blend. Add water to dilute if you consider this is necessary.

3 Spray at flies and on surfaces where flies are alighting.

Note: This will leave a residue that requires wiping but that's better than having flies annoying you.

Got flies?

You don't need to run to the store and get a noxious chemical spray this time. It is possible to make your own fly spray at home.

This one is based on the U.S. Forest Service bug spray recipe.

Body spray:
 1 cup water
 1 cup Avon Skin So Soft Bath Oil
 2 cups vinegar
 1 tbs. Eucalyptus oil (found in health food stores)
Optional: few tablespoons of citronella oil.

1 In a non-reactive bowl (ceramic or glass), mix all of the ingredients together.
2 Pour into a clean spray bottle.
3 Shake the spray bottle well to mix the ingredients.
4 Label. Date and label the bottle with each of the ingredients plus directions for use.
 e.g.  Bug body spray
        1 cup water
        1 cup skin so soft bath oil
        2 cups vinegar
       1 tbsp eucalyptus oil
       made (date made)
       expiration date (usually one year)

5 Use by spraying on body. It is probably wise to do a skin patch test to ascertain any allergic reactions.
