B1..... for flies...... ???
Vitamin B1 to repell flies???
A friend of mine said she took vitamin B1 for a week prior to going camping last weekend. Apparently the flies were relentless. Everyone in the group was more or less eaten alive. Except that is for my friend who took the B1 Vitamins.
Have any of you ever heard of this?? Can anyone confirm this?
I've heard things such as bananas are not good to eat because when you sweat, it comes out your pores and for some reason atracts flies. I've heard garlic will help repell flies if eaten, but B1 is a new one for me.
Flies seem bad this year. I've noticed more animals on the roads too which could indicate a bad fly year.
Keep on trekking
