    Leg Up® Bug Defense Pellets is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Work Fed this for a month noticed absolutely no difference. Same fly amount and ticks while fed. Didn't notice the garlicky smell some others did. It did smell slightly different than usual but not strong.
    Date published: 2019-08-16
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I don’t think this works Flies are especially bad this year so I bought this and....I don’t see a difference. The horses eat it fine but I won’t buy another bag
    Date published: 2019-07-18
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I bought it and it does take about 3 weeks to see a difference but it does help keep the bugs off
    Date published: 2019-07-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works ! Has been the best supplement so far to help with bugs in Florida. Would highly recommend.
    Date published: 2019-07-09
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't see any difference Had my horse on this product for two months and saw zero difference in the amount of flies attacking her.
    Date published: 2019-07-05
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure if it works I started this product last month in hopes that it would help the fly situation we have here in Georgia. I am not sure that anything natural would help but I will keep my guy on it for the duration of the summer as I have done in the past.
    Date published: 2019-07-03
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't see a difference Used this for three months starting in the spring and unfortunately did not see a difference. Also, my horse did not like the taste at first but eventually got used to it.
    Date published: 2019-06-25
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh didn’t work that well for me I have two horses on this and one on smart bug off. The one on smart bug off has way less flies than the other two horses have. Last year I had one horse and he was on smart bug off and it worked but I wanted to try to save money (since I have more horses now) and give this cheaper version a whirl. Can’t do it. I’m switching back to smart bug off.
    Date published: 2019-06-17
    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!
    Date published: 2019-06-06
    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!
