Product Description:
This is a mixture of high quality therapeutic grade 100% pure essential oils: Citronella Cedarwood, Eucalyptus, Geranium (especially known to deter ticks), Lavender, Lemon Grass, Peppermint and Tea Tree), plus a natural surfactant called Tween 20 (made from coconut oil and sorbitol (obtained from fruit); which keeps the oils dispersed in water for easy spray application.)

How to use: Mix in a spray bottle. Add 2 - 2.5 ml (1/2 tsp.) of mixture for every 100 ml of water or apple cider vinegar. Shake well. Spray on the animal or human you wish to keep flies and insects from biting.

For external use only. Do not use undiluted. Do not use on cats.

You can read what other people have to say about this mix on our Testimonials pages.

I've been using Shoo Fly for at last 4 or 5 years now. We have horses,
donkeys, and goats primarily, but also other farm animals that don't
require fly spray. I did an experiment this year - used Bronco on the
legs of the horses and donkeys, and Shoo Fly on the main body of the
equine. We live in Florida - where it is hot, muggy, and lots of biting
flies. We have several solar fly traps around the property, and we also
use Fly Eliminators to control the fly population. Since we must apply
fly spray every single day on the equine, I wanted to see how the
"killer" held up against the herbal. We have always hated apply the
strong fly "killer" on a daily basis and wanted to see how the goat's
Shoo Fly worked out. Several days in a row, I went out later in the
afternoon and did a fly check. T [...read more]

I just wanted to give you a heads up. I got some of the shoo fly and mixed it with apple cider vinegar and the first time I used it I noticed bees were attracted to the goats. I have found a couple bee stings since using it. I used it today on 2 goats out of 4, and those two had about 2 or 3 bees each hovering and landing on them. After inquiring and a little research, turns out bees are really attracted to apple cider vinegar. In my neighborhood we have had a mule killed and a police dog killed not far from my house from killer bees in a one month time period. If you have bees in your area, I wouldn't mix with apple cider vinegar! You may want to use white wine if that is OK, or just water. Bee Careful!!

This works great but you do have to apply it daily. You can almost hear the goats sigh when I'm done spraying them because they can finally stand still! We live next to horses so no matter how clean I keep our side, we have flies. I ran out of herbal mix and bought some hard core stuff yesterday at feed store. After reading the label I decided I just couldn't put it on my goats. I was hoping for a frost so I could order fresh herbal spray mix next year but it hasn't happened yet. Thanks, Molly!

This is great fly control. Using it with free range chickens makes the flys a non-issue for our goat barn.

We love it! I keep a spray bottle in the barn for the horse and another in the house for people.
