    Leg Up® Bug Defense Pellets is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps ticks away for sure! I've never bought a feed-through bug repellent but the price was right so I decided to try this one out! While I haven't seen a decrease of insects on or around the horses, I do think it has helped with flying insect bites. I have also not seen any more tick bites recently, which is a huge plus for me. So not a repellent, but seems to help with biting!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bug free! I started my horse on this a month ago and the flies have just started swarming all the horses in the barn and mine is fly free. Between Leg Up Bug Defense, Citronella shampoo and fly spray, my boy is flyless!
    Date published: 2019-06-06
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work! But my horse ate it. I wanted to try something new since I used SmartBug Off Ultra last summer and only liked it OK. I saw the positive reviews on this product and added it to my horses smartpak. I have seen no difference with my horse and the bugs so I have moved back to the SmartBug Off Ultra. I won't try this product again.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Horse love it! I started my horse on this about a month ago. I’ve seen very little improvement so far. However, it may be my fault as I haven’t been giving it to him every single day. I’m going to try another month being more consistent. I can tell you my horse loves it like a treat!
    Date published: 2019-05-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Palatable and Good Product I bought this supplement for my pony who has a flu allergy and refuses to eat the BugOff pellets. He has not refused to eat this supplement yet and has been on it for a few months. Seems to be protecting him from the flies but it is very early in the season. I will continue to use this product in the future.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as many flies. We have. Even on this about a month. The flies don't seem to be as bad however, lots of flies on there eyes and still using fly spray.
    Date published: 2019-05-11
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best price decent results I have had my horse on this supplement for a little over 2 months now. Before I forget this does have a horrible smell but my horse doesn't mind that at all. We are from Central Florida and we've gotten a lot of rain so far and it's not even summer! My guy has always had pretty bad allergic reactions to flies so he's always on something to keep them at Bay. He has not had any allergic reactions so far and we moved to a place that unfortunately has a lot of flies. I'm happy with the fact that he hasn't had bad reactions but there are still flies all around him. Unsure if it's the supplement that is keeping them from biting but they still like to annoy him. Happy with results for such a cheap price. I am considering trying smartparks options but again you can't really expect flies to avoid your horse at all times but the lack of reactions leads me to believe this supplement worked.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped Keep the Bugs Away My mare is super sensitive to flies and this made her less attractive to the bugs. Love this product and the horses ate it willingly. Absolutely saw a difference almost immediately. I recommend this product. Plus, the price is affordable especially when you have multiple horses.
    Date published: 2018-08-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually works! I didn’t really believe any of these products did anything except make the horse smell bad, but my mare has a terrible greenhead allergy and this supplement saved her. About 2 days into using she no longer had any welts or hives.
    Date published: 2018-08-15
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure if it's making a difference My mare is a magnet for insects and she's been on this a while, not sure if it's making a difference or not.
