fly spray

Does fly spray lose it's potency over time? I was thinking about starting to stock up now for the summer. But I don't want to waste my money.

I hope not, I have 3 bottles in my laundry room. I bring anything that will freeze out of the barn and into the house for the winter. I think if you keep it from freezing it should be ok.

I don't think so... although I had a fly spray concentrate that separated over a couple of months' time.. and it looked disgusting. But I shook it up and it seemed to work fine...

Fly Spray

Best fly spray ever and never worry about cost and freezing. Purchase a bottle of pure Citronella Oil and just add to water in your fly spray bottle. 6-12 drops, it doesn't matter. Lasts for days before reapplying. Best I ever found.

I have been using the best stuff to keep flies away and it works better than anything else I've ever used. It is rosemary and cedarwood oil in creme. It is awesome. Someone locally makes it. Best stuff ever and safe to put on horses, dogs, any animals.

Not just in a year or so, but flies do build up a resistance if you keep using the same fly spray every year!
