keeping flies out of the house
this is the best forum i could find to post this, so i hope it belongs here.
my question is this, we live in a townhouse, and have a relatively small back yard, with two dogs. most of the back has gravel down, because they were killing the grass, but there is one box with some grass in it. the problem is that the flies tend to get into the back yard no matter what i do.
i know that in the old times, that people would plant a lot of plants around their doors and by the windows to deture the bugs from flying into the house.
i was wondering what kinds of plants could be insect repellent, and if any of them would do ok in hanging baskets. i would be able to hang them under my awning, pretty close to the door i hope.
thanks for any suggestions!!
