It’s summer again and time for the fly sprays to come out. A tried and tested formula that has been around for 30 years is Extra Tail Original Fly Killer and Repellent from Kalium.

Kalium describes its product as one of the few repellents on the market that is literally licensed to kill flying insects. Extra Tail Original costs £6.99 for 250ml.

For those preferring a less drastic approach, there is Extra Tail water-based repellent which is available in 250ml for £4.59 or in a 60ml roll-on for £2.49.

Altenatively you could choose Extra Tail Natural – a blend of essential oils including geranium, lavender, juniper, citronella and tea tree oil – costing £5.59 for 250ml or £2.59 for the 60ml roll-on.

The Extra Tail fly repellent range is available from Westgate stockists. For more details (tel:01303 872277).
