Flies can be a major annoyance at your picnics and parties, but there are some ways that you can keep flies away from food. One way is to use a canopy covered with mosquito netting to keep the flies from getting in the food area. Citronella candles also work well to repel flies and other insects. There are also essential oils that act as a natural fly repellent. Lavender oil, eucalyptus oil, and peppermint oil poured directly onto citrus peels and left on the table will keep flies away from your food. You can also do this with white vinegar.
Flies are going to land on your food whether it is indoors or out. The best way to prevent this is to keep the food covered. If outdoors, you can get little nets that go over the top of the food to keep them off.
