    I was wondering if anyone has tips or tricks on making / using organic all natural fly spray. Normally I would use garlic powder and mix it into the feed but the flys this summer are awful.

    Around here, the biting insects pretty much give you the middle finger with anything other than industrial strength repellent. This year, even that don't work. For example, on me, I was cutting fence rails in the woods, I was sprayed heavy with Deet, still came away looking like I was a leopard! I give up, insects will attack me & the horses.
