Natural Fly Repellent

During the Spring and Fall I love to leave the doors and windows open. Unfortunately the flies love it too and come evening I find a plethora of them circling my house.

One way to keep them out of the house is to use a repellent, but if you like me you try to minimize your use of chemicals.
 Did you know that Thyme repels flies.

Hang a sprig in your door or make this handy tea and fill a mister bottle so you can spray your door and window frames.

Thyme Tea Fly Repellent

Brew one teaspoon of dried thyme in one cup of boiled water for about 10 minutes.

Let it cool, strain it and you have an effective, chemical free fly repellent you can spritz anywhere flies congregate.
