As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

The environmental solution to pesky flies!

Fly Predators are beneficial insects and the natural enemy of flies. These insects never bother humans or animals but feed on fly larvae to interrupt the breeding cycle of flies. Sprinkle on manure areas monthly to control fly populations. Up to 94% reduction in pest flies have been reported. Fly predators cannot be returned as they are living.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from they work!! We only have two horses but our new neighbors moved a herd of cattle next to our farm last spring and we were very concerned how things would go as summer progressed. We all got together and decided to give this a try and it worked! Within a few short weeks the problem was significantly reduced. This year we will start earlier and are confident we will not have any pesky flies to bother us or the livestock.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These work great around the sheep too! Our trainer uses these around the horse farm and they work well, in spite of the fact the cattle farmer next store does not. I tried them at home with the sheep and found they work even better. There are no other properties around with livestock so there is no competition from other sources

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from NO FLIES This is the first season I have used these and they seem to be working great. We had another horse person stop by the other day and could not believe that there were NO flies buzzing around...Love this product...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely makes a difference I've used Fly Predators for 2 Summer seasons now & can say that they do make a noticeable difference. We start getting shipments in the Spring time before the flies get bad...this is definitely important; if you are going to commit to a season of Fly Predators, you MUST start using them before you notice flies for the best results. We actually use a combination of fly predators, and we set fly traps around the barn area. We keep the back & side of our property as a hay field, that runs right up close to our pastures, and we always have an influx of flies after our hay gets cut. We do also keep our horses on Smart-Bug Off...basically, we do use other products to supplement the fly predators, as they can't take care of all flies. But they do make a big difference - if you have a problem with flies, I recommend these little guys!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fly predators Great product. You really know how good these little guys work when you are running out of them. They are a win/win. No pesticides, and no flys.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to reduce fly population Last year, I moved my horses from a boarding facility to a field where only my horses were kept and I started using fly predators as well as a feed-through fly control. I definitely noticed a reduction in the non-biting black "house" flies. This year the relief was not as great but I still think the fly predators aided in the reduction of the black house fly population. I did not notice the fly predators themselves once I released them. This product did not seem to help with horse flies or the green biting flies. For the price, I think this product is worth buying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fly population cut by 90% This is the only stuff that works. FYI: I put out a lot more than they recommend. I have three horses and did 5,000 but got poor results. Now, I just do 20,000 at the beginning of the season and leave it at that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Fly Predators have reduced my fly population to almost nothing and they are a great value. I used to spend $100's of dollars on chemical fly sprays/products and now all I do is get Fly Predators once a month.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
