I use a mix of 1.5 oz of citrinella one pt vinegar 1/4 cup veg oil one pt of water. this sprays about 25 cows to keep flies off during milking. in really hot weather I will add 1/2 oz basic H . I read about this on an organic list. the guy using citrinella got in trouble for spraying milk house and ruinuing milk. that's where the basic H comes in to spray milk house to keep flies out.

LOL!!! LOL!!! LOL!!! Thank you Marlin for that laugh this morning! Well needed!
It works! If you can handle smelling like a garlic head for a few hours you are in tall cotton. I kind of like it! It's a little like the pleasure of smelling your own farts. It should also work to keep pesky people away. I have even used garlic oil several times to relieve pain in chronically sore joints.
