Re: Catnip oil as biting fly repellant
The cat ignores it on people, though he loves regular catnip toys. Yeah, I wondered about that.
I'm sure smell could vary, but the stuff we are trying from Petco doesn't smell, or at least much less than DEET. Check before you buy.
It is mediocre on mosquitoes (much better than nothing, but not as good as DEET). We have not yet run into heavy flies... but we will in a few weeks!
