    Mosquito Halt is rated 4.5889 out of 5 by 90.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actually works Keeps the bugs at bay long after product has dried, unlike a lot of fly sprays that only work for 5 or so minutes. Has a strong odor when first applied, but within minutes mellows out to a very pleasant scent. We live near a swamp, and after trying many different sprays over the years, this is the only stuff I use now.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from There is no perfect fly spray but ... While all of us know that the perfect fly spray does not exist - Mosquito Halt comes pretty close. My OTTB is sensitive to bug bites and this seems to help him the most. Now that it is becoming warmer, overnight turnout will occur, and I like having the assurance of a mosquito repellent as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, but doesn't last against texas Mosquitos I've tried so many products to help my horse against the terrible Mosquitos we get in the marshlands of coastal texas, and this one by far has been the best. However, I find that it only really works for the first 20-30 mins, when the smell is still very strong, then my horse is covered in Mosquitos again. We really get awful Mosquitos here, and this is the first product that has really done much to hold them off, even for a short while. I had tried a citronella neck collar too, with no luck at all, but when I spray the neck collar with mosquito halt - jackpot! It keeps my horse mosquito free for almost a full day!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average Performance I expected more than average performance based on the majority of positive reviews. My experience with the product is that flies seem to land right back on the horse not long after spraying. I sprayed my horse during grooming, after saddling up and two times during the ride in the ring. I know that fly sprays are not 100% effective as advertised, but I will not repurchase as I found myself reapplying this product more frequently then with the other ones that I have used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works I purchased it based upon review by Horse Journal. It works on flies and gnats.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff This is the only spray that I've tried (and I've tried many) that will keep flies and biting insects off the horses. The downside of it is that is only works for a few hours and then needs reapplied and it is expensive. But at least it does work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Thing to Keep Ticks Off! I have been using this product twice a week from March thru November in New England for 4 years, and none of my 3 horses have had Lyme since (they did previously). I rarely find a tick on them. Many in my area find dozens of ticks on their horses every week. I am exceptionally pleased with the product. It even repels horse flies!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fly spray! Great fly spray. Works better than most. Nice smell as well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well No fly spray really does an outstanding job, but this one is pretty good. I bought it as a fly spray, not a mosquito spray, and it works well to repell and hopefully kill the flies. Your best bet is always a good manure disposal plan, however. Unfortunately, our barn does not have one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tick Repellent I have been using this product for several years, and have found it to be very effective for repelling of flies and ticks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stops Mosquitos + I find this spray to be the most effective one I use. With WNV rampant in Texas, this has been a life saver for us. I living by a lake as well, this works! I think it kills just about every other annoying insect my horses encounter, too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fly spray This the only fly spray I've found that actually works. With the mild winter last year our fly population was awful this spring, summer and fall. I won't say it provides protection for 2 weeks but it does provide instant relief which lasts for several hours. Any other products I've used, flies reappeared and were biting within minutes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked better than other fly sprays This summer, the mosquitoes were a problem for my horse. The usual fly sprays were just not getting the job done and giving him relief from mosquito bites. After reading reviews, I decided to give the Mosquito Halt a try. It definitely did help to repel the bugs initially and gave him more relief but didn't last as long as the product's labeling stated. Still, I'd recommend it, as it worked better than most other insect repellants. The fragrance isn't too bad but be careful to stand clear of the spray vapor when using the product. It is strong!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Before we moved to SC, we had a much bigger problem with bugs. Having experimented with many brands of fly spray, this one seemed to work well with flies and mosquitos about the best. Here there is more of a gnat problem. Honestly, most brands' claims to duration of effectiveness is laughable; our experience is that none work as long as advertised. We apply before a ride, or the farrier, or as needed. This spray does well overall in comparison to others, so we use it the most. The gallon refill size is a super value; Smartpak has the best price and with the free shipping wins hands down!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product The best product we've found for keeping mosquitos away here in buggy SE WI. Smells great, shines up their coats, and lasts a long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from super for mosquitoes in Florida my Arab is so sensitive to mosquitoes it is hard to find anything that keeps her from suffering. And in Florida with the heat and heavy rains many products wash right off. Mosquito Halt is the best spray on I've ever used for her. It drastically reduces the number of bites, holds up in the rain and sweat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great but odiferous Mosquito Halt is the only thing besides OFF! that gives our DWB gelding peace after the suns starts to set. Out of all 5 of our horses, he is THE mosquito magnet and as soon as the sun goes down, they are all over him - literally making him crazy to the point he will gallop around his turnout until he is dripping with sweat.Deep Woods OFF! might smell better but who can afford to buy all those little cans to use on a 17-hand horse every night during mosquito season? The bonus with Mosquito Halt is it continues to work the next day to repel the flies.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from kept them off! I was pleasantly surprised as I have yet to find a really effective mosquito repellent. We live in a wet area and the mosquito are horrid. I have used the product 5 times thus far and it killed the mosquitos on contact and kept them off the entire 2 hours I was riding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I use it here down in Southeast Texas and it works great to rid my horses of the mosquitos. I also love the smell!!! It seems to last a lot longer on their coats than other fly sprays I have tried. I have reordered the gallon refill and will definitely continue to use it throughout our Spring/Summer.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from stinks and does not work! I sprayed this product on my horse and first of all it smells like old men's aftershave and it makes it impossible to breathe around your horse. Also, after spraying this on my horse we went on a trail ride and what do you know she was COVERED in mosquitos. Not what the product advertises.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps him bite free! My horse gets a quick spray of Mosquito Halt every night to keep the pesky bugs off my horse at night. I would not have him in Florida without it! The nights that I am not at the barn or he is not sprayed he has little bites in the morning! I recommend this to anyone who lives in a wet or tropical environment!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only spray that works in our area Its a little stinky, but by far the best fly spray we have tried. Its the ONLY spray that keeps all the pesky bugs away. No way it lasts 2 weeks - but most sprays I have tried don't last an hour! By far my favorite.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works really well! I bought this product due to the recommendation by Horse Journal, and am in agreement with their findings. It smells really nice, works great on our nasty mosquitos, and is effective against flies as well. I've switched from the roll-on facial stuff to using this as a wipe-on for faces, too. It is less oily than most roll-ons. My horses seem to tolerate it well and the bugs will fly near them but not land. It's almost like an "aura" of buglessness. OK, that isn't a word. I will definitely continue to use it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works but... The product does what it claims, repels mosquitos, flies, and gnats, but it stinks! If you breath in the mist at all you feel like you've just ingested a ton of horrible chemicals. Not sure how this could be any good for your horse either! If you read the instructions it basically says humans shouldn't touch it or breath it. Yikes!
