I would almost enjoy seeing a fly in va this weekend
I found one in the heated water bucket the other day! Hit 11 celcius(very rare in feb) and one adventurous fly woke up. Back to being frozen now.
Anyways, back on topic, I've had no luck with any sort of repllent, natural or other wise. I'm not sure If our insects are just more obnoxious up north or what, but they don't seem to be phased by anything.
