Homemade Fly Spray

May 5, 2015

Fly spray is the bane of my co-habitation with horses.  I get really annoyed at the cost of fly spray, the fact that it doesn't really work awesome, AND...if I am going to pay for something, it better work in a superior manner than what I could make at home.  

 

So, with that little rant out of the way...I made my own flyspray.  Tested it.  And it works!!!!! And it's cheap!!!!! 

 

Here is the recipe:

1 gallon distilled vinegar

1 container Listerine

1 container Dawn Dish Soap

1 container Baby Oil

 

Pour all ingredients into jar, tub or whatever.  It makes about 1.5 gallons all in.  I purchased a beverage container with a spigot to make refilling my flyspray bottle a breeze.  Plus, I noticed my beverage container was cheaper than a storage container/tupperware thingy.

 

Now, I would like to set expectations for this homemade flyspray.  It does not kill flys.  It deters them.  If you see a spot that a fly lands on, spray a little more on that spot.  I have noticed that it definitly minimizes the flys for my girl.  Let me know if you try it and what you think.
