All-Natural Black Fly Repellent

Black Fly
Well, if it isn't a Vermont biting black fly. Say cheese! Then shoo fly!
Shoofly repels black flies naturally without harsh chemicals like DEET and citronella. Shoofly is safe for children and pets. It's mild, healthy for your skin, and has a pleasant fragrance. One low-cost, long-lasting soap bar repells black flies for an entire season. Also available in a convenient spray.

Best Black Fly Repellent All-Natural or Commercial

Shoofly Black Fly Repellent Soap and Spray consistently outperforms chemical-packed commercial repellents. Our customers tell us it's the best black fly repellent they've ever used, all-natural or commercial. The Blackberry Creek family lives in Wisconsin which is a prime black fly territory with a few billion deer flies to boot. They love the outdoors. The annual infestation of biting black flies can make outdoor activities miserable. So they developed Shoofly Soap and Spray using all-natural ingredients to repel them.
And it's good for your skin because it's over 50% olive oil. You can enjoy your outdoor activities again. Shoofly Soap makes such a terrific gift because eliminating the black flies problem makes everything else so much more fun!
I've used it myself in Vermont... another black fly haven in spring, and it works great!
5"Keeps those darn black flies away from us in Blue Hill Maine! Great stuff, it's the only stuff that works!

Safely Repels Black Flies and Other Biting Insects

Shoofly is effective, all-natural

We have had missionaries use Shoofly Soap and Spray to repel the "super bugs" found in Central and South America as well as Africa.

Shoofly Stops Black Flies from Biting During Any Outdoor Activity

Repelling black flies is important because black fly bites can cause serious alergic reactions and transmit diseases to humans.
*A special note for horseback riders...
Use the soap on yourself and on the horse! You and the horse are happier. And keeping the biting flies off the horse can certainly lead to a less skittish ride. Help me spread the word. Please tell you riding stable or local tack shop about Shoofly Soap. It's a great product for keeping the blasted black flies away and putting a lot more fun back into your horseback riding. Shoofly is also a must-have for working around your stable.
Shoofly Spray is a great natural black fly repellent for dogs.

Shoofly is Healthier Than Competing Natural Black Fly Repellents

Shoofly Soap doesn't contain Citronella oil like most competing natural black fly repellents. That's important because Citronella may irritate sensitive skin, can cause dermatitis, and is not recommended for children under three years old. The concerns about Citronella seem to be a bigger deal in Canada and Europe than in the United States. But why worry about Citronella when there's an all-natural, incredibly effective black fly repellent that doesn't use it and is safe for everyone of all ages with or without sensitive skin?

How to Use Shoofly to Repell Black Flies

Watch the YouTube Video above 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 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. Use both as the best way to prevent black fly bites.

How much do I need?

One bar of Shoofly Soap is enough for one person to use and repel black flies for the entire season. The amount of spray you need totally depends on how you're using it and I can't predict how much you'll need.

Can Shoofly products be used with sun screen?

No. The fragrance of the sun screen can render it ineffective.

Must Shoofly Soap or Spray be reapplied after you've been in the water?

Yes. Shoofly products are not waterproof.

How long does it last before you have to reapply it?

It depends upon several factors. How much do you sweat? Your personal body chemistry can affect how long it lasts. Were you in the water? If the black flies start to bother you just reapply it.

Do I need to use both the soap and the spray?

No. But it's best if you do. Shoofly Soap puts a higher concentration of ingredients on your skin than the spray. Use the spray on your hat, the ends of your sleeves, and around your socks. Having said that, a lot of people use the spray only and are completely happy. But from my own experience, if I had to have one or the other, I would want the soap.

Are some people bothered by black flies more than others?

Absolutely. You can have four people standing on a golf course and have one constantly being bitten by black flies while the others are not. It's a matter of body chemistry. Fortunately Shoofly Soap and Spray work extremely well for the vast majority of people with that "oh so special" body chemistry.

What else can I do to help keep black flies from bothering me?

Avoid dark colored clothing like dark blue or black.

Does Shoofly Soap and Spray smell bad?

No. I've only had two or three complaints about the fragrance. Most people actually like it. But no... you're not going to smell like insecticide. All the ingredients in Shoofly Soap and Spray can be found in most kitchens.

Can Shoofly be used on dogs?

Yes! It works great for dogs... and horses too!
