Fly Armor Extra Strength Noseband (Patent Pending)
This product seemed to help releive my horse's irritation with the flies on his nose. I am also able to ride him without a fly mask. The product is easy to install on his bridle.
It does seem expensive because the inserts need to be replaced.

fly armor noseband
Flies have been so bad this year that I can't even ride my horse. He flips his head and refuses to trot. He does have trigeminal neuralgia (photic headshaking syndrome), which has similar symptoms, but it is seasonal. He is past the point where that condition makes him unrideable. Sprays and creams did not work to combat the flies. I put this nose band on and he is rideable and willing to go. An occasional pest will annoy him, but it doesn't stop us.

Didn't live up to claims
After watching the promo video and reading about Fly Armour, I was so excited to have a product that could protect my horses from disease carrying flies. Pigeon Fever is rampant in my area, so it is vital to control the flies that carry the disease. I purchased $200 worth of Fly Armour and feel it was a waste of money. I had flies land on my horse just one inch from the Fly Armour bands and stay there seemingly unaffected by the product. Save your money and avoid this line of fly control!

Not quite what I had hoped for...
I was disappointed with this product. It's very hard to find something that truly works to combat face flies this time of year. I used the noseband with the strips inserted (they were kind of messy to insert, as well), and we still had face flies during our ride.
