I've heard of this "fly repelent" but I thought you stuck the cloves in whole lemons the same way you do oranges for a Christmas decoration but I see by the picture that you quarter the lemons to leave the flesh exposed. That makes more sense to me.

Hy friends, I am in Spain, and here we also use this to repel flies. I am trying and I think it works. I open the lemon by half and put the cloves. Thank you for sharing this small and beautiful issues.
