Red Neck Fly Spray For Horses

The summer is over.

But the flies and mosquitos are still going strong.

My friend from the mid-West gave me this recipe for homemade horse spray.

She said it came from Tennessee and is known as "Red- Neck Fly Spray".
It's simple to make, inexpensive and IT WORKS!!

I made up a batch and it seems to work as well or better than many of the others
I currently have in my arsenal. And believe me people, living out here in bug country, 
I've got quite a collection.  I think we have pretty much tried them all
from the cheapest to the most expensive brands.

Here's the recipe. I mixed it up in a 1/2 gallon milk jug,
gave it a good shake and then poured it into my sprayers.

If you want to make a gallon at a time, 
just increase the ingredients to 1 cup instead of 1/2.


1/2 cup PineSol

1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar

1/2 cup Rubbing Alcohol

Fill the jug with water ands shake each time before use.
