Frequently Asked Questions
Shoofly Natural Insect Repellent Soap & Spray are unsurpassed for repelling yellow flies without chemicals like DEET and harsh ingredients like citronella. Shoofly is safe for children and pets and healthy for your skin. Each soap bar contains over 50% pure extra virgin olive oil.
We received questions about how effective Shoofly Soap and Spray are for repelling yellow flies. Shoofly Soap and Spray have gained a reputation for being one of the best insect repellents... natural or commercial. Our customers tell us it is the best black fly, deer fly, no-see-um and mosquito repellents they've ever used. Shoofly is literally being used around the globe to repel some very large and nasty insects in Central and South America as well as Africa.
Yellow flies are the southern equivalent of what black flies are to the northern states... on steroids!
For those of you planning to vacation or move to Florida or the Gulf Coast you should know that...
Yellow flies are out from March to November.
They're at their worst between April and June when many people are reluctant to venture out of their houses to do anything outdoors.
They'll bite any exposed part of your body.
You won't hear them coming because their flight is very quiet.
But until we have a chance to test the effectiveness of Shoofly for repelling a specific kind of insect we don't make specific claims about it. I'm happy to report that Shoofly Soap and Spray are effective at repelling yellow flies as it is for repelling black flies. You can enjoy your outdoors activities again. That's why Shoofly Soap makes such a terrific gift because eliminating the yellow flies problem makes everything else so much more fun!
Shoofly Insect Repellent Soap & Spray works for...
We have had missionaries use Shoofly Soap and Spray to repel the "super bugs" found in Central and South America as well as Africa.
*A special note for horseback riders...
Use the soap on yourself and on the horse! The rider is happier. The horse is 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 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?
Watch this YouTube Video 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.
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!

"I bought this product because we go to FL a lot during the summer. My friend that goes with us gets bit by yellow flies and she ends up with golf ball size welts where she is bit. Well we put it to the test this past weekend and IT WORKS!! She was only bit once and that's because she didn't put the spray on herself in time. Even then it didn't welt up like they usually do so she is very thankful." (Uses Shoofly Spray to repel Yellow Flies.)

"Did not repel yellow flies here in florida." Rick E., Hosford, FL 06/20/13
Response: This is the first time that a Shoofly product has failed to repel any type of flies. Rick was using the spray only and from what I can gather was using it correctly.
