  1. I will try this for my dogs. The flies bite their noses and they bleed. I never thought of using citronella oil. Thanks for sharing ❤️

    1. I neglected to mention water in the recipe, fill the remainder of the bottle with water! Thank you, I hope it helps the pups!

    2. Exactly, Barbara! That was my first thought, too. We live in the High Desert across the (dirt) road from a Bak Choy farmer who uses cow manure every few years to fertilize the soil. He buys it by the truckload, dumps it in a pile next to the greenhouses.
      Mmm mm. Talk about flies! Our poor pups can’t take a decent nap. Jennifer’s recipe, with water added (thanks Jennifer, wavies!) is now tacked to our refrigerator. Yep, even dogs need a survival kit 🙂

      1. Oh goodness, we know what it’s like when the neighbor spreads! So stinky! I really hope this helps your pups! Flies are persistent, you may have to spray them several times a day!

  2. Hey Jenn,

    I’m so glad you posted this. I am going to buy the ingredients to try this spray out with our Jersey. Right now I’m doing the oil, ACV, dish soap, and EO’s, but as you said, it only seems to last for about 30 minutes.

    Can’t wait to try this out!

    Hope you and the fam are doing well 🙂


    1. Hey there! I was thinking of you when I posted this! I forgot to mention filling the remainder of the bottle with water in the recipe. I just fixed it! I really hope it works for you!
