I'm in need of some advice. I'm a wildlife carer and I'm looking for a natural way to repel flies around the animal enclosure. I do my bit by keeping it as clean as I possibly can, but I think I can do better LOL
I've read the article on the Bunnings website Six plants that repel mosquitoes and flies but with six to choose from, does someone have experience with this and know which plant(s) work best?

I think you would have more succcess with this - https://www.bunnings.com.au/envirosafe-fly-trap_p4475914
They are very effective, you'll be having to empty it in no time. Pesticide free, non-toxic ...
As a tiler, I have been visiting many owners' houses. I have seen some plants which the house owners chose to grow in order to repel unwanted insects such as flies. You can choose from Basil, Mint, Rosemary, Alliums, Chrysanthemums, Marigolds, Nasturtiums, Petunias, and Pitcher plants to Lavender. All of these plants emit smells that repel insects.
Thanks for the suggestions. I think I may try the lavender first, it can keep the flies away and keep me calm over the school holidays LOL
