    SmartBug-Off® Pellets is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 1394.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not having much effect with keeping flies away. It doesn't help with the flies at all. My trainer said don't bother sending out anymore.
    Date published: 2019-07-13
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from never made difference! Don't waste your money. My horse had more flys on him with this and it never made a difference
    Date published: 2019-07-11
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Palatable This is the second horse I’ve put on Bug Off. No single product works, but in combination with topicals, spray systems and pasture management, we might survive the summer!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Review: SmartBug-Off I’ve been using the product for roughly two months. I’m still applying horse spray every 2-4 days. Perhaps I needed to start the pellets earlier, before biting insects are in force.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sensitive to flies So far out of all the flies we contend with the only one that has not left their mark is the bot fly. We deal with a mare with cushings and 2 with sensitivity to flies. We have been looking for something that covers everyone's needs.
    Date published: 2019-07-09
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Working! First time I’m trying a feed thru fly repellent. It’s been 6 weeks now and flies are not bothering my gelding at all. I do use fly spray too and stall is clean but he does pasture at night and we’ve had lots of rain - and still no fly problem. Oh- and I don’t smell any strong odor coming off him either as some reviews report (?).
    Date published: 2019-07-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was highly skeptical So much so that I initially only bought for my fly candy Haflinger. After a week it had made such a difference for him, I put my two Gypsy Horses on it as well. My barn is so much more pleasant, and while there are still flies, we have gone from unbearable to just a few. I have used fly predators, traps and diatomaceous earth to keep the numbers down, but this has made a world of difference for my horses!
    Date published: 2019-07-05
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Horse repulsed by flavor/smell My horse is pretty sensitive to bugs. We use fly predators and have a horse/deer fly trap as well. I figured I would get this for him for the extra support and protection as he was still quite irritated. He’s not a picky eater and wasn’t thrilled with eating this. I called and asked about returning or exchanging the supplement and was told to give it a few weeks. Well, he went from picking at it to completely refusing to eat his grain at all. It does have a fairly strong garlic smell, not sure if that is why or not but he had no interest in eating this. I ended up soaking the feed and trying to get it in him that way, and some days he still wouldn’t finish or even touch his grain. I can’t really say how effective it is if he won’t eat it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT WORKS! My buckskin mare was being tortured by horseflies. Some days she looked like she just came off a battle field. Sprays would help her but not all day and especially when grazing near cedar trees and our creek. Within 2 weeks of use, I'm IMPRESSED that she's had one horse fly bite! The horse flies are coming around her and our chestnut gelding but hovering then flying away! I'm going into the 3rd week of treatment and no flies and very little flies in the barn or around manure. Not only are the flies / bugs no longer a issue, but our horses are healthier with the additional Omega blend added to the supplement. What a peace of mind! For us all. Our summer is looking to be the best one yet! - Thank you SmartPak!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great results! My QH mare, Gracie, had been battling bites on her front legs for several summers. She has sensitive skin. constant biting and scratching caused a vicious circle of scabs. Last year toward the end of the summer I started her on Bug Off. It did seem to help. We got a good start this summer and I am happy to report no horrible scabby legs! well worth it!
