All-Natural Fly Spray
From Fresh Eggs Daily

Sometimes your chicken coop will get a lot of flies. You can use this for cleaning and for where there are flies in the coop. Flies don't like basil, mint and lime.  So if you spray it where they are at they will say, "Ew, I don't like that!" and then they will fly away.

What You Need
1 lime
Handful of Fresh Mint Leaves
Handful of Fresh Basil Leaves
White Vinegar
Pint Canning Jar
Spray Bottle

Cut the lime in half and put it in the jar.  Put in the mint and basil. Pour in the vinegar until it's almost to the top.  Let it sit for a couple of weeks and shake it every few days. After two weeks take out all the stuff and pour the liquid into the spray bottle.  Now spray at those flies!

Thanks for reading!
