Just a warning- enough AVC (as we are calling it ) to help prevent flies (feeding it to them) makes them at a pretty good chance of having gastric ulcers. And yes spraying it on works quite well :) And get a fly sheet/mask! And spray legs/neck to prevent welts from the flies where the sheet/mask doesnt cover. So what works the best is that good ole' fly sheet!
Best Wishes,

Actually, ACV actually turns alkaline while it is digested, and encourages salivation, which in turn helps digestion. Saliva lines the digestive tract, protecting it from ulcers.

I learn something new every day ! But I do know that about garlic. . . I mean its fine to feed a tablespoon to there feed a day, and that I think helps them digest but not really to repell flies, so you would have to feed like 1 cup or so . . . And that's not good for them.
