Natures Botanical. They can't advertise it for human use but lots of people use it as an insect repellant.


Best stuff ever.
We brought it from a livestock supplier

At risk of LH comments the flies are shite at Keysie currently. The normal sprays are totally ineffective.

Is it just Keysie or are other courses experiencing the same problems ?

The open drain on Governor Rd has just been enclosed and I'm speculating that has caused a migration.

 

They are pretty bad down at the Schanck ATM as well.

Another repellent apparently is ..... Tiger balm.

 

Just dab a little somewhere on your bag, buggy, or hat etc, and it should do the job.

 

Apparently its a well known remedy for insects, as they hate the smell of it and steer well clear.

 

One of the playing partners mentioned only last week that his Grandmother puts a dab of the stuff under the outdoor table whenever they are having a bbq.

 

(I presume that something like dencorub may also do the same sort of job)

Make sure you wash your hands after applying Tiger balm before you take a p#ss....burns like the bejeezuz
