    Bye Bye Fly (formerly Garlic Flakes) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 157.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn’t work at all My thoroughbred has been on this supplement for close to a month and I’m sad to say I’ll be cancelling it. He does eat it willingly but I’m seeing no results from it. I was hoping at the very least it would keep ticks off of him as he’s extremely prone to them. I’ve pulled five off of him in the last week. Not to mention his stall has smelled horrid since he’s been on this and the flies continue to bother him in there anyway. It was worth a try but I wouldn’t waste your money

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more hives My horse never had bug issues in CA but in OH she was being eaten alive and was getting hives all over her body. I added the garlic and I will never take her off. The bugs still are around her, but she no longer gets hives even on her belly. She is very happy and now can enjoy turnout time on pasture and semi retirment in peace. I no longer fly spray her which she likes because despite her being 20 she's afraid of spray bottles...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless Unless you buy this in the Smart Paks, this stuff is worthless. It goes stale quick and loses it effectiveness. I think it would last longer if you would improve the packaging and make the bag resealable or something, but then you'd probably raise the price again. It absolutety did not work. The horse would eat it, but after a week or so, it lost its odor so of course didn't repel the flies.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No noticeable improvement I tried this product on a horse who is supersensitive to flies, lots of head tossing and running around at pasture. I did not see much change nor could I smell the garlic aroma, which is typical of people who eat a lot of garlic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for the most sensitive horses I started this supplement right as fly season started. I recently moved barns and this was my first summer at my new place. The new place has a forest right behind his paddock. So, he was getting chewed with bugs. I never had any issues with him and bugs prior to moving so this was a new issue for me to try and figure out. He was getting chewed alive. I had a fly sheet and boots on when it wasn't too hot out. There was a lot of days though where it was too hot to have any fly gear on. So, once this supplement starting kicking in, the bugs instantly decreased and he was a happy camper again (and so was I)! I occasionally use fly spray but not as much! Highly recommend this product. Next summer, I am definitely going to put him on this supplement earlier so we can beat fly season even before it arrives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10/10! My welsh pony gets eaten alive all summer! He can’t wear his fly sheet 24/7 due to Michigan’s intense heat and humidity. He’s a fly boot destroyer but thankfully he keeps his mask on. I’ve noticed a big difference in the amount of bugs around him, and a lot less bites on him too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! Been giving this to my horses for a month now and they eat it and it seems to help keep the flys away.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells Great! I moved to Virginia from Florida and was shocked at how much worse the bugs are here. I already use feed-through fly control, but it didn't seem to be working as well as it did in Florida. I thought I'd try the garlic to see if it kept the bugs from biting as much. The bugs are still there, and they are still biting, but it doesn't seem like as many are actually biting as just buzzing around. I hope that's the case and it isn't me just 'wishing' it that way! That's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. I will continue to use the product all year to see if the biting subsides. The horses don't lick every bit of it out of their buckets, so I assume they aren't too crazy about the taste.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yuck! I bought the Bye Bye Fly hoping it would work. I didn’t even get that far as once my horses smelled it in their food buckets they went to the other side of the stall. It is nothing but dried garlic flakes and it’s odor reeked. They were actually offended by it. I took it out of their buckets, apologized to them. It was a waste of money.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wish My Horse Would Eat It I bought this supplement in a SmartPak a while ago, as my pony has extreme reactions to flies and gets very upset about them every summer. He itches himself harshly and causes open sores on his stomach and I was hoping this would work for him. I totally get that horses take a bit to get used to garlic (smell and taste), but he wouldn't eat it, to the point where he started refusing his food. I tried soaking his food in the hopes of hiding it, and even that wore off after a couple of days... I ended up stopping it halfway through and had to bag all of my SmartPaks because the supplement was right in the middle of the strip... I honestly just wish he would have eaten it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to do the trick! My OTTB is extremely sensitive to bugs, last year he lost alot of weight because of it! This year, I decided to try something different... I ended up adding Bye Bye Fly to his daily supplements. It is now the middle of July and he seems to be maintaining weight and not horribly irritated by the bugs. I look forward to next month to see how well he does!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FLY RELIEF!!! I have been using fly sprays, Fly Predators, Simplifly; then Bye Bye Fly...after about two weeks, the flys have virtually disappeared. I don't have a fly problem in the barn but when I turned them out, I put a fly mask on my horses. Now I don't use the fly mask...it's such a relief!
    Date published: 2019-07-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Palatable, smells good I haven’t seen a huge difference yet, but I’m using this product in combination with Simplifly and something is slightly working. It takes consistency to fully work in my opinion. Still giving 5 stars because it’s easy to give and a good value.
    Date published: 2019-07-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far it is really helping with the flys my poor jewels they seem to love her not so much now thank you
    Date published: 2019-07-06
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from SUPER garlicky I can only get my horses to eat this supplement if I soak their grain and make it harder to separate the garlic out. It’s super overwhelmingly strong. My mini (even on the small dose) had adverse reactions to it. My Morgan eats it and smells garlicky but I’m not really sure it keeps the bugs away all that well. I’ll continue to feed our for the rest of the summer with the theory that it’s got to be better than nothing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bug Defense and Picky Eater Approved! I originally bought the Bye Bye Garlic Flakes in Smartpak form for my two horses to give it a try. One of my boys is super picky so I figured he would turn his nose up at it. I was pleasantly surprised, both boys devoured it and licked their grain pans clean! I decided to buy it in the tub so I can feed it cost effectively all summer long to my three horses (spoiler alert, the mare loved it too!). It took a week or two to start seeing the effects but they are definitely swishing their tails less and have far less swollen and crusty fly and tick bite marks. I don't think it provides 100% protection and some smaller flies don't seem to notice but by and large I think its made a pretty big difference. I will definitely keep feeding it throughout the buggy months! I also want to note that it is super potent, my barn smells like an Italian restaurant in the morning :P

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from my horses will not eat this i have too pigs (horses) they will eat anything! i once caught my pony eating my dogs food right out of his bowl! but when i came into the pasture with this in my pocket they came up to me fine but after i opened it up they ran for the hills. i've put it in hot mash, in applesauce, in bread. i've even gone as far to baking it in muffins but NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO they will not touch it with a 1000 foot pole. im very disappointed in this product

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for horse food "sifters" I bought this a few months ago for my horses and like that it is not finely ground. One of my horses will sift out powders and such and leave at the bottom of the bucket. He eats all of these "chips". Both of them gobble them up and it sure does seem to be helping for gnats on the mustang horse and flies on the other dark horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Respiratory benefits This summer and now early fall have been exceptionally rainy, causing many horses with respiratory issues to be suffering. My 30 year old Arab gelding has in the past required steroids to get him through flare ups. I purchased this originally to help keep the gnats off him, which I can't say it did, but he has had no issues with heaves this year. I would recommend this to anyone with a horse with respiratory problems.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good results My horse is extra sensitive to insect bites and regularly developed oozing welts and swelling where he was bitten. I ordered this product in July and after about 2 weeks the bad reactions stopped occurring. He still had flies landing on him but no more oozing welts and swollen bites, I was thrilled! I continued use of this product until the weather cooled off and my horse did not show any skin sensitivity to insect bites while on the product. My horse had no problem eating the product and the strong smell did not linger in the stall after he finished eating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using less fly spray! My poor old mare is a big fly magnet - she and her son can stand next to each other and she will be covered and he won't. I tried the Smartpak "leg up" stuff and that didn't make a difference but on this stuff I find I need to fly spray her about half the amount I was spraying before. Granted she does get a tablespoon twice a day and weighs about 1000 lbs but it has really helped.
    Date published: 2018-10-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My boy loves it! I put my boy on this to help deter the flies in the summer with good results! I've decided to keep feeding Bye Bye Fly throughout this year's winter too because I've read other benefits on feeding garlic. He also loves the taste!
    Date published: 2018-09-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bye bye Flakes I believe this is helping reduce fly bites on my yearling warmblood filly. She is thin skinned and flies & mosquitos cause her to welt all over. Since I have been feeding this her skin looks better and she has stopped throwing herself against the wall due to itching so badly. A win win. Only wish the price was easier on my wallet for daily use.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great, shipping took way to long Started my horses on this year for the first time, I can tell a good difference. It took way to long to receive my shipment though, several weeks from the date I ordered it.
    Date published: 2018-08-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great at preventing bug bites! My horse had terrible hives from bug bites, even with a fly sheet! Ever since I put him on bye bye fly he has hardly any bites, and I’m not having to use as much fly spray.
    Date published: 2018-08-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works! Started my Quarter horse Mare on this a week ago. Flies and bites drastically reduced. She is not a fan of the taste however, but manages to work through it..
    Date published: 2018-08-07
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bugs, bugs, bugs everywhere. My mare has been on this supplement for nearly two months with absolutely no change in biting insects. In fact, things have gotten worse (which is likely not due to this supplement, but rather the weather around here) and this supplement is not even remotely helping her.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No bites The flies still land but my horse hasn’t had a bite since a week after he started this supplement!
    Date published: 2018-07-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually worked! My QH gelding HATES flies and seemed to notice them even when other horses didn't. Even with a fly mask and a generous coating of fly spray he'd shake his head and stomp in the paddock and while I was trying to work with him so I decided to try a feed through supplement. I did not have much faith in this product as I have tried many "natural" remedies myself without much help, but I needed to try something for him and figured I'd start with garlic as it was cheaper than the SmartPak Bug-Off pellets. To my amazement it worked! He now stands quietly in his paddock, in the barn, on trail rides, etc. The owners of the farm where I board my horse, and some the other boarders, were so impressed that they decided to start feeding it to all of their horses as well. I just have one disclaimer, while my horse and 4 others did not seem to notice their edition to their grain, 2 of the horses we gave it to refused to eat it–one so much so that he had to get a brand new feed tub before he started eating his grain again. Just incase your horse is like this, I would suggest buying the smaller bucket first!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Horse won’t eat it My horse has been on this for over a month, it seems to work a little bit but my horse will NOT eat it! He spits them all out and is usually not a picky horse. I wanted to use these to keep it natural, but might have to find a different alternative!
