    DefaultNeed some help please

    Every time I try and leave the dogs outside they are immediately attacked by green and black flies. I just tried to give them marrow bones and it is interesting that the flies leave the bones alone and attack the dogs. What can i do? My neighbor just brought me a can of garden Raid but it is so toxic I don't want to spray it on the grass. Anything nontoxic I can use? Thanks-Danie

    I am not sure there is much you can do about about flies that is pet safe. The situation sounds horrible.

    Thanks Dan. I just tried spraying them with my lemon verbena perfume from l'Occitane. It works for about 10-15 minutes. Expensive way to keep the flies away but boy do they smell good. LOL

    Danie, you could try a fly spray used on horses - I can't remember the name of the one I use, but it's a black bottle with hot pink writing. It seems to help them out. If the flies are going for their ears a lot, you can use a horse fly repellent roller thingy for them too - we had to do that the summer we went waaaay up north.

    Have you ever tried that pennies in a baggie with water thing? I have and it did seem to keep them off the deck. I've read that alot of outdoor patio restaurants use them. You just fill a ziplock bag half full with water and drop 5 or so shiney pennies in the water and hang them around the area. Worked here. Good luck.

    I would not put anything on their coats or the grass that could be poisonous if ingested.
