Re: Garlic for repelling insects
Oh boy! I have to disagree, Dr Kellon! I have used garlic as fly repellant for at least 5 years. My farrier and vets are always surprised at the lack of flies and no bites on my horses. We have pigs,chickens, and donkeys across the creek-that's where the flies are! I j got a new horse from Texas last week. My mare started on her garlic the second week of March. Last weekend, as they stood next to each other, the new horse was stomping and switching his tail-covered in flies. My mare didn't have a fly on her. It does work-at least in Georgia!
