The genius fruit trick that will banish flies from your house without using any harsh chemicals

  • An Australian woman has invented a quality fly repellent using a lemon and clove
  • It’s more natural than using chemical sprays around the house or on your body
  • Niecy Kriesh cuts up a lemon and places a handful of cloves on top of it
  • The handmade product will last for six days before needing to be replaced

A savvy Australian woman has invented a natural fly repellent using just half a slice of lemon and some cloves which will repel pesky insects for up to six days.

Niecy Kriesh shared a video on YouTube showing exactly how she makes the repellent, saying that while it doesn’t kill flies, it will certainly keep them away.

‘Just cut the ends of the lemon off and then in half so it sits neatly in a dish,’ she said.

She dices it up so the smell of the citrus can be released

Then Niecy simply pokes the whole cloves into the lemon flesh, using as many as she can fit to release a scented aroma.

‘I assume the smell is what keeps the flies away,’ she said.

It is a method that can be used both indoors and outside to keep flies at bay.

And the 6,000 who have watched Niecy’s video have been thoroughly impressed by their own results.

‘Can’t wait to try this – would be great for Christmas Day,’ said another.
