Fly repellant : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Hi All, Okay I have this new thing I am doing here on the farm. I have a fly problem. I will have 20-30 flies in each room of the house at any given time. I hate spraying stuff and was really frustrated. My husband came home with fabric softner sheets. He hung them in all the exterior doorways of the house. Well don't you know I have not ONE fly in my house. It took about 3 days to get them all gone but for a week now I have no more flies. Good luck. Karole

When out riding your equine, stick a fabric softner dryer sheet in your shirt pocket with a bit sticking out, and one in your back pocket. Tie one to the equine's bridle. Insect free riding! I keep one in my shirt pocket when working outside and the gnats are bad.

Does this work for mosquitoes???? The kids are COVERED in bites this year -- the sprays do NOTHING, and it's been really wet here. They practically carry you away if you're out in the garden after dusk.
