Not that Ive seen a lot around at the moment - clearly a wet summer overhere is keeping them at bay.

But, when they do come out, any ideas on plants flies dont like...and herbs?


Lemon verbena  and Lavender

what about mint?

my mother told me that keeping a pot of mint in the kitchen deters flies


Country folk used to hang elder leaves in windows and doorways to repel flies, and also stick springs in a horses's bridle for the same reason.

great thanks for those suggestions. I will try the mint, and elder leaves.
