    Wipe Fly Protectant is rated 4.8889 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than most First time trying does seem to last longer than most sprays. I only used it on several horses' faces and necks, and noticed an immediate lessening of flies landing there. Did not use it on the entire horse, as per label directions, or I would have used the whole bottle in 1-2 days.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable When Nothing Else Works I've been using this for years in an area where regular fly spray is just picante sauce to our insect population. I love that you rub it into the coat, and that it really lasts. In fact, unlike most products, it lasts longer than advertised.THE GOOD: effective & laaaaaasts!THE BAD: nothing really.THE ICKY: you do need to think about how you want to apply this, because anything this effective on bugs probably isn't something you want to work with carelessly. I've purchased Absorbine's Mitt to apply it, and it works much better than towels or sponges.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have tried several other insect repellents but this works the best! Just after applying this, my horses stopped stomping at flies! Amazing stuff!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Really works! I love this stuff. My horses disliked being sprayed and danced around every time I sprayed them. So fly spray was not working. I decided to try this and they all stand still and let me wipe them down. I used it on their whole bodies. I wipe them down every morning and it lasts until the next morning. I use the show mitt that stores in it's own plastic bag. I wear vinyl gloves under the mitt while applying the wipe. I have 4 horses and the routine goes fast and they think they are getting a massage. It is a little oily but that is a minor detail compared to it's effectiveness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fly Wipe If you want a wipe that lasts this is the one to buy. I use this when I really need a good fly wipe, i.e., when the flies are relentless. I use a sponge to apply it and use it only on his legs. This wipe lasts close to 24 hrs, which in my opinion, is excellent. I use the wipe spray on the rest of his body. Great, great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FLY SPRAY THAT LASTS !! We have used wipe for years, it stays on the horses longer so therefore it works longer. It is slightly oily, so it brings any dirt to the surface so, We don't use it when we're showing, but for here on the farm and trail riding, there's nothing better !!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product. I have a mare that is very sensitive and I cannot use most of the other products on. I can use the Wipe on her and she does not break out into hives and it works for a few days. It is a little more expensive than some of the others but is the only one that works for my mare.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from bugs still biting this years bug population has been extremely high. I'm sure it is due to the above average temps and humidity we have had here in Michigan. I have tried numerous products this year trying to give my 3 horses some sort of relief from these pests. The Wipe brand was suggested to me by a friend and horse owner . She claimed she had been happy with this product the year before. However I have not found much or any improvement in deterring the biting bugs. It does have a pleasant smell and seems to stretch further than the other brands. So I am just rating this product as average

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fly Protectant I've found We have a lot of biting flies (mosquitoes, deer flies, horse flies) and this is the only stuff I've found that really works on them. I love it! I wish it was a bit less expensive but it's still worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been using this for years. It does as it says. I just wish this came in concentrate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase This is one of the best working products I have used so far. It repels the bugs the best and usually lasts longer than the spray on repellants.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff I've been using this product for over 10 years. It is the only fly repellent that lasts through a long (5 hour) ride.Granted, it collects filth on the horse due to its oil base, but it keeps the flies and ticks off which is all that matters to me.NOTE: Does NOT protect against mosquitoes

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Fly Repellent I add some wipe to my spray fly product to help the spray "stick" to the coat and last longer. Remember to shake it up before you spray. It isn't too greasy this way. For extra fly repellent needs I use it as labeled and wipe on belly and chest. Another staple.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I have used this product for years but only recently realized how well it worked. I was using another flyspray that SmartPak sells and it simply wasn't working. The bugs were so bad that I couldn't ride! After switching to Wipe, the bugs were managable. It doesn't slow down the monster horseflies but I am not sure anything can stop those guys. I just whack them with my dressage whip!I apply the Wipe with an old washcloth and store the washcloth in a zip loc bag. It gives my horse an unbelievable shine and it is comforting to see him relax as I apply it. When I am in a hurry I use Wipe II that comes in a spray bottle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent on legs and belly I highly recommend this, especially for the lower extremitites. I don't think there is a spray out there that can touch wiping this on their legs and underside.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wipe Keeps flies away Wipe really keeps flies off my horses' legs. Only issue is extremely messy to apply. Poured last bottle in sprayer and sprayed on mitt to apply. No waste that way. But you still need to have soap and water handy to clean up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable & Effective Repellant & Insecticide I learned years ago that not only are Repellants needed, but insecticides too. When the insect lands, it picks up the "juice" and later dies. The repellant part keeps the insect from actually biting.This is a great product for pasture horses. Too oily for show horses. I use a plastic-lined fluffy mitt to apply WIPE. I apply a good "dose" of it according to product labeling to the lower legs, chest, between the hind legs, and neck and body. Rubbing across the hair. I store the mitt in a coffee can.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It simply works... Cruiser is afraid of being sprayed so Wipe takes care of the problem with a concenrated product that works well to repel flys & ticks. I also use One Spot every two weeks when the predators are nasty. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer Necessity! Living near the seaside salt marshes, we contend with nasty greenhead flies throughout most of the summer. WIPE is the only product I have found that will keep the greenheads off the horses. It's a summer staple in my barn!

    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...
