Take a shallow jar and place two cotton balls at the bottom. Cover with vanilla extract (about 4 tbsp). Then place the torn off leaves of fresh mint and sage over the cotton balls. Seal with cheesecloth by screwing the lid over it. Now you have your natural fly repellant. I placed a few of these jars near baskets of ripe fruit (and my compost bucket) and have had excellent results. The reason is flies don’t like strong, aromatic scents and sweetness. So the combination of vanilla, mint, and sage produce the perfect repelling concoction. The jar lasts about a week before going bad, so be sure to replace them weekly.
