    SmartBug-Off® Pellets is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 1412.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Horses ate it no problem. Ive had my horses on this for a month or so and tho I don't think that I think it keeps the big flying bugs away, it does keep the ticks and gnats at bay so I consider it a win.
    Date published: 2019-08-05
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not worth it I have tried this with my 2 mares for 2 months--- it's not working at all,,, I need to cancel this
    Date published: 2019-07-30
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tasty and seems to work? I purchased this to help keep flies off my horse when I am out of town and cannot fly-spray him every day, and I think it helps! It is palatable and certainly gives me peace of mind.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I really, really wish it worked! I really wanted it to work. But it simply didn't. I noticed no difference at all. So I upgraded to Ultra, and still absolutely no difference in flies.
    Date published: 2019-07-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great!! My 2 horses are always covered in flies no matter what I do here in the heat of NC. To my amazement after a week of giving my horses these pellets the flies are not covering their legs. Granted there are still a few flies but they have been significantly reduced. I will continue using this product during fly season And I am so grateful to have found something that works!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't do anything I had high hopes for helping my two horses with fly protection out on the trail. Unfortunately, after two months, I didn't see any changes, and my horses were still getting bit. SmartPak did give me a store credit for the bucket, since the full refund is only for the Paks.

    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!
    Date published: 2019-07-10
    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 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!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Was not impressed I tired SmartBug-Off this year for the first time for my three horses and unfortunately was not impressed. The product selections I made the last two years for feed through fly control (Simplifly & Solitude IRG) were more effective, so back to one of those I go. I did like the ingredient list for this product but our flies here were unphased.
    Date published: 2019-06-21
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn’t see a difference Unfortunately I didn’t see any reduction in the number of pests buzzing around my guts. I have 2 horses that are pasture 24/7. It also has an awful smell so hold your breath!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works! Started using this a couple years ago and it works great!! We used to use the fly predators but this is sooooo much better!!!
    Date published: 2019-06-12
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sadly doesn't work Sadly this didn't work for my horses because not every horse on the farm is on it. I did notice a difference when they were inside, however when they went out with their buddies there was no difference in the flies. My filly even has bloody sores on her stomach from flies, so clearly the garlic smell isnt doing anything. Maybe if every horse on the farm was on it there would be better results.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My horse loves it! I started using this product approximately 2 months ago. It seems to be working well except for her legs. Guess it can't quite make it down that far, otherwise I'm glad I decided to give it a try.
    Date published: 2019-06-05
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Desperately hoped this supplement would've helped! I bought this two months ago in the hopes it would provide some relief for my extremely bug sensitive 25 year old mare. I made sure to start feeding it as soon as it arrived so it could take time to build up in her system before bug season started in our area of the midwest. However, it still didn't help :( Her legs were covered in flies and she was running around trying to get away from them. I typically love the SmartPak brand supplements, unfortunately this one just didn't work for my old mare. I have used a granular garlic only formula in the past and that was more effective.I suppose I'll try that one again and see how it works...
    Date published: 2019-05-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relief for my sensitive gelding! I started using this product two seasons ago after my gelding broke out in hives from bug bites. He is much happier on this product and no hives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff My flys are Bothering my horses which is great because I spent lots of money on bug spray that only lasted for a day this stuff lasts all day every day I don’t have to spray my horses
    Date published: 2019-05-15
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from i bought a big bag of this to test out on my horses. I have three, but only put two of them on it to see if I saw a difference. The one horse that I didn't put on it swishes his tail less and has less flies on him than the two I have on it. I've very disappointed> I was hoping this would be a life saver Plus it stinks and smells up your feed room.
    Date published: 2019-05-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It actually works! I purchased this on two horses to try since the flies in Central Texas are notoriously horrible. One is a mostly white paint horse who acts really irritated if one fly is on him, especially in the show ring. No amount of fly spray does the trick and I've tried them all. I was dubious about this product, but it actually works! The two horses who are not on it yet, are getting eaten alive. I'm taking the time to write this review because it's a good product and all my horses are going to be on it starting tomorrow.
    Date published: 2019-05-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great so far. I bought this less then a month ago so I don’t know if it helps with bugs or not yet, but my very picky eater eats it just fine in his feed!
    Date published: 2019-05-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Horses, Happy Me! Impressive results. They smell like garlic pizza now when I walk into their stalls. I Love it!
    Date published: 2019-04-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working great I picked this up for my rocky mountain horse who had an issue with insects last year and rubbed all of her hair off. I started her out in the fall on Smart Shine and that helped a lot. She's on smart Mane & tail now in combination with the Bug-Off. She's the only one in the Bug-Off out of my 3 mares. I've noticed a significant amount of flies on my other two that aren't on it compared to my RMH who is on it. They all get the same fly spray and spot on treatment.
