rue for flies?
I have heard that rue helps deter flies. How many plants are needed to keep flies away from, say, a back door area where kids go in and out all day and a tired husband tries to relax in the evening?
Does the plant smell nasty?
I have seen mixed reviews on this site regarding skin reactions it may cause; some say its safe, others say its dangerous. Why such a difference of opinion?
If not rue, what plant would you recommend to deter flies?
Thanks so much for your feedback!
