I've used it myself in Vermont... another black fly haven in spring... and it works great!
"Keeps those darn black flies away from us in Blue Hill Maine!
Great stuff, it's the only stuff that works!

Watch the video on the left to find out how to apply Shoofly Soap and to see how it's not noticeable, greasy or sticky when it dries. To repel black flies and other insect pests, you simply apply a lather of soap on your skin and don't rinse it off... like a lotion. It dries clear and is invisible. And you'll smell great instead of smelling like insect repellent.
Use Shoofly Spray on your hat and socks together with the soap for the best protection.
You can safely use the spray directly on your skin as well. Using the spray only is more convenient because the soap requires that you have a source of water to wet it. But the soap is more effective than the spray because the lather has a higher concentration of ingredients.
5 / 5 Stars"Before my annual Canadian fly in fishing trip (10 years running), I was warned about the black flies and mosquito overpopulation due to the wet spring. In searching on the Internet I discovered the Blackberry Creek Shoo Fly Soap and ordered three bars. Every night I showered with the Shoo Fly soap and had no problems with mosquitoes or flies on me during the night. In my dry bag I carried one of the bars with me when we (10 of us) had our shore lunch. The black flies, deer flies, and mosquitoes were horrible even though we were on a point, trying to enjoy our meal after our morning catch. The rest of the group had various mosquito sprays along with ThermaCELL, but all were having no effect. I reached into my dry bag and laughingly told the group to use some of the soap, leaving some of the residue on them. The results were amazing. We got immediate relief!! The bugs would hover around our hats, but would not bite. I have ordered an additional 10 bars to give as gifts, as we have a mosquito problem here in Louisiana. I have yet to try the Shoo Fly Spray, but I heartily recommend the soap. Thanks again for your wonderful product!!" William (Bill) H., Shreveport, LA 07/07/08

3 / 5 Stars"The soap works better than the spray. I used the soap twice to mow my lawn for about 1 1/2 hours at a time. I am in the woods every 2 to 3 days doing wildlife research. I have not tried the soap in the woods but tried the spray. The spray was not as effective and I had to keep applying it every hour or less. The black flies still dive in and go up the nose and into the eyes. A Vanilla spray from Walgreen's seems to be more effective. Believe this, if you could come up with a repellent that keeps the black flies out away from the face it would be worth a million. The black flies are far more aggressive than mosquitoes and are terrible to deal with. Used both Shoofly Soap and Spray for Black Flies. I like the shampoo soap and I will try the Shoofly soap in the woods to see if it lasts longer than the spray."

5 / 5 Stars"I love the scent! At first the spray was pretty strong smelling but it quickly dissipated to a lovely scent reminiscent of cedar. Much better than commercial sprays. And it doesn't dissolve nail polish!" (Uses Shoofly Soap and Spray for Black Flies and Mosquitoes.) Theresa B., Carp, ON Canada 06/18/13

4 / 5 Stars"First, your Shoofly products. I purchased the soap and the spray. I live on 65 acres of woodlands which include wetlands. We have had generous rain this past month. Ideal breeding conditions for all our buggy friends. And they have been fruitful and multiplied! Ideal conditions to test your products. I had been using a similar product, using a different combination of oils. This gave me a chance to compare the two. Both theirs and yours do very well overall. Differences in terrain, weather and body chemistry may make someone else's results vary, but here's what I found. The Shoofly products excel in these areas - aroma, going on lightly and with no greasy feel afterward, and in keeping away black flies and deer flies. With mosquitoes, the difference is minimal. In the course of a week or two, I may get one or two more bites with the Shoo Fly than the other product, but that's a very slim margin. With the abundance of bugs out there, both products score well into the 90's. I find the Shoo Fly spray has a slightly better aroma than the soap, but both kinds are equally effective. I also purchased the Tropical Coconut soap, but I haven't used it much yet. " Mark N., Windsor, ME 6/14/13

5 / 5 Stars"My kids did not want me to put it on them in the morning before school. Then my 8 year old daughter came home from school and said the other kids wanted to know why the flies were not going near her! She was all for letting me put the soap on in the morning after that."
