Here in Canada, we struggle with flies the size of horses! This essential oil mix has always worked great for me:
3 parts lemongrass (or citronella)
1 part thyme
2 parts lavender
1 part peppermint (or eucalyptus)
Mix together in a new plant sprayer (you may dilute with springwater if desired) This mix also has the advantage of smelling pleasant and is safe for use around kids and pets.
