    Flysect® Citronella Spray is rated 4.6087 out of 5 by 46.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural Fly Spray I love this product. I have three horses and one has very sensitive skin. Other fly sprays make his skin break out, this one does not and it is a natural as it can be. My other two horses love it also. You can use a wash cloth and spray the product on it and then wipe around the horse's face without any problem. Horses love the smell and heave a big sigh of relief. It is also great on the mane and tail, an unexpected conditioner so you get two things for the price of one. I buy a larger container because I use this all summer long.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Fly spray for Summer Eczema/Sweet Itch I bought this fly spray as a substitute for one that had been discontinued. I use it twice a day, dawn and some time before dusk. I am also using another product from Iceland to help with any breakouts. Also have added some supplements to help with this condition.Last 2 years he was oozy, crusty and not happy. I had to use steroids. This year, I have managed to keep any outbreaks to a minimum, and can manage them without putting him on steroids.Bottom line, my icy seems to be having a MUCH more comfortable fly season. This spray works real well for his condition.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the Job I like this insect spray, as it seems to keep the flys from landing on the horse and it lasts longer than most sprays. I used it at a horse show in July, sprayed my horse with it in his stall so the spray would also land on the shavings. It did a good job of keeping the flys away, but I did keep the stall picked of manure, which helps. A little pricey, but worth the money. Smells nice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from fly spray that conditions This fly spray is good for our arid and sometimes very humid conditions. It works well for the aggressive mosquitoes as well as the blood sucking flys. It is gentle on the horses skin and does not burn their coats. You do have to put it on a couple times a day when flys are real bad. It does not make me sick as some of the other flly sprays do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A more natural approach to FLY SPRAY. So, I had given up on the search for a fly spray that works on all of the nasty insects we have here in NC....I have tried MANY! I decided to go more natural and purchased a bottle of Flysect. I was pleasantly surprised! No, it didn't get rid of the bugs altogether, but it worked as good or better than some of the more expensive fly sprays that are comprised of strong man-made chemicals that I have tried. And it smells great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fly spray! I recently decided to try this product. It is probably one of the best fly sprays I've ever used. I try to always use natural, botanically based fly sprays but most only last a few minutes. This one lasts much longer. It is slightly greasy because of the lanolin but well worth it for my horses comfort.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fly spray ever! This is the best fly spray i have ever purchased it keeps away the flies and bugs and gives my gelding a nice shiny coat. It also has a very nice citronella scent. When i ordered it i used the barn saver shipping it shipped right to my barn, free shipping! The only downside it ships with other peoples thing so it got a little bit mixed up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lasts and smells great! This is my favorite fly spray! Flys have been really terrible this year which has caused me to go through 3 different styles/brands of spray, I am going to go back to this one due to its lasting power. The natural oils in the product cause it to work for longer than the synthetic brands so if I can't get out to the barn everyday, I don't feel guilty. Because it is all natural I don't worry about spraying it on my hands and rubbing it on his face. The smell is also good and the nice shine it brings to my horse's coat will keep this company getting my business

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff I love this fly spray! It is a little bit greasy, so always apply BEFORE tacking up! But it has a very nice citronella scent, and definitely keeps the bugs away. I've also noticed that it keeps my horses' hooves very shiny, which is a nice side effect! Overall I've used many different types of fly spray, and this is definitely my favorite.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps flies away I have always preferred flysect. I tried this one because of the citronella. At first I hated how greasy it was, but my horse's groom said it was the only brand that he has seen that really keeps the bugs away in turnout. I think that outweighs the greasiness concern.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can live with this! The citronella bug spray smells Great and leaves my horse with a nice shiny coat. I haven't seen any flies on him, so it is effective too. I have an aversion to chemicals so this is a great solution for both of us! If it's on my horse, you know it's going to be all over me too. Send me another bottle!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff I have been using the FlySect Citronella spray for years now. It is as effective as any other spray I have tried (and I've tried them all)... plus it has a pleasant lemony smell.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works pretty well For the black flies we have now. Horses don't mind it. Keeps coat soft and shiny

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fly Spray It works well, but seems to make the dirt come up on her fur so she looks dirty even after brushing. I would use it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff There are a lot of fly spray products on the market - but this is (IMHO) the best thing out there. The citronella oil gives it staying power which I like. My horses are outside half the day & it really keeps them fly & pest free. Having an oilier base than some keeps it from letting the dew remove it should they lay down in the grass. I like how it kills on contact when I spray it on. Highly recommend to anyone with horses on turnout or with lots of fly problems - I also spray the stall walls with it to keep flies from buzzing around the buckets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, effective fly spray I live in Eastern PA, and the bugs this season seem to be out of control. Many people at my barn have struggled to find an effective fly spray, but I seemed to have struck gold with this one! The flies leave my sensitive skinned pony alone for a long time, and it doesn't irritate his skin at all. It smells wonderful, too. I like that it polishes his coat, but the oils tend to both attract dirt and bring up dirt that is already in his coat. Usually about halfway through our ride I notice that he looks much dirtier than when we started! But it's a small price to pay for effective fly control.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fly relief This product works as well or better than others but smells so much nicer. It doesn't feel greasy and seems to last longer than other sprays.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product I've been using this flyspray for many years now. Unfortunatly it is getting harder to find so I'm thankful that SmartPak is carring it. This is becomming the worst year yet for flies and mosquitoes here in the SE. I've used every fly spray around and have come back to this one, even though I have to order it. It works the best of all of them, is less toxic, imparts a lovely sheen on the coat, and smells nice too. The price is reasonable too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! Love this flyspray. The citronella is awesome and it definately detours the fly swarm a bit longer than most sprays. I've used the Flysect products for years and they're by far, my favorite!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flysect Citronella Fly Spray Excellent product for fly control. The only negative is that the oil in it brings up the dirt from the horse's skin. If you can get beyond that, then this is the best product for bug control I've ever used. My farrier loves it too and is always swiping my bottles to take with him.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK Fly spray OK Fly spray, seems to work as well as everything else.I got it because I thought it might be less toxic, but it has all the same warnings on the label so I'm assuming it's just as toxic as the non-natural brands. Seems to work well though, and it doesn't smell bad.I've noticed it "pills up" a little on my hose when she sweats, but only if I put it on immediately before I ride.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gentle and Effective After my horse had a reaction to another fly spray, I was looking for something a little more gentle. I gave this spray a try and love it! Keeps the bugs away from my super-sensitive gelding but doesn't give him any fly spray burns. The lanolin keeps him soft and shiny and it also smells really good!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flysect I've used this in the past and liked it. I tried another product last summer and got attached by bees. I'm back to using Flysect now and no more bees!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fly Spray My thin skinned chestnut mare is super sensitive to flysprays and to every insect out there! The Flysect Citronella spray is fantastic for her. It repels the bugs, but does not make her lose hair or make her skin peel. The only thing some people might not like is the fact that this spray is a little bit oily. I really think this spray has helped my mare's coat glisten even more then ususal. I love this spray!
