Apple Cider Vinager - Good Fly Repellent?
A friend of mine told me that a friend of hers told her that apple cider vinager is a good fly repellent... Did you get that???:-P Is this the case??? My friend uses it all the time, and we never really see any reduction in the number of flies, but thats usually the case with all fly sprays... Please help!!

Apple cider vinegar is sweeter than white vinegar and might attract the flies instead of repel them. This is just what I have heard

That is also what I heard, but whenever I ask around people don't really have a good answer.

I use it on both my horses & when I was selling Spyder it had rained, she had played in the rain while Mystic had been on the porch staying dry..... the next day Spyder was being ate up from flies & Mystic had almost none. It works great for me & mine. I have even sprayed myself when the biting knats wouldnt leave me alone..... worked like a dream.

I use it. It works as well as any store bought fly spray. There are still flies, but the number is greatly reduced. The only bug it doesn't seem to affect is horse flies.

In my experience the flies pretty much become immune to it after awhile.
