Hi Lulu,
In some supermarkets you can buy jars of peeled garlic cloves. They are not in any kind of liquid or oil, just plain, peeled garlic cloves. Like I mentioned earlier, it's close to 4 cups worth.... Sometimes, I just appreciate the ease of having so many peeled cloves at my fingertips.

What is this about fly repellent?????????????

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

As for fly repellent, the only information I know of is that, consumed, it can act as a natural repellent. However, I have to say this is in reference to animals, such as horses and dogs, etc.

Lulu has spoken of keeping horses. Perhaps that is what she is referring to. I realize that Buck and I consume quite large quantities of garlic. Probably more than most folks in our community. We are also not bothered by flies. Ooooooh, that may have to do with regular bathing, though.

Katie's right....horse people often feed dried garlic to horses in efforts to help them exude the smell of garlic, and so help keep them unbothered by flies. I have never seen this work with horses, but I'm prepared to give the garlic repellant a go my self, lol. As well as baths we also have an electrified tennis racket style fly swat. We are not a fly friendly house hold. :)
