    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible product A friend of mine told me about this product and she raved about it. So I ordered some and have been using it for about three weeks now. I am amazed at how good it works. My horses, I have 8, have no flies and it's fly season. I've never seen anything like this. And it sure beats fly spraying every day.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still Evaluating... My 11 year-old Arabian has developed hives by the end of summer the past 3 years, presumably from insect bites. I am trying this, but been feeding since April 14 and he still has not adjusted to the strong flavor/smell. I mix 1/2 scoop morning and night with soaked beet pulp and dry cob. I add some brown sugar to make it more palatable, but he still pushes it around, but eventually eats it. If it keeps him from getting hives, it will be worth the trouble, but will continue until Fall before I know the results. I have had great results with SmartPak supplements in the past, so keeping my fingers crossed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far it’s worked great I have only used it for 1month, but it has decreased the face flies dramatically.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! This stuff works! I have a very sensitive warmblood. He was shaking his head and rubbing his mane and tail. Fly gear made him more agitated. I started him on this supplement with not much hope. Well let me tell you, this stuff was a miracle for him. And it started working quickly. No more head shaking, no more rubbing. If you’re having these issues related to bugs, it’s worth a try.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from We have been using this product for years, and my vet and I are in a discussion on whether this product also kills worms as my horse never test positive for worms even though he sometimes shares a field with the cows. Flies still land, and they even sometimes bite, but when you compare my horse with the horses that do not receive this supplement, it is night and day. It works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for pasted 2 years, great product. Used for pasted 2 years, great product. Yes, I will continue to re-order. Helps with the flies alot. We use lot "bug bags" scattered around the fields as well. My TW/StBr used to get lots of bot eggs on his legs. Well, no more. The QH didn't. Less Horse Flies. Great prodouct. I order the MVP 6way and it has done great on coat, growth of mane and tail, helps hooves (also use biotin). Horses grow with these products.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too soon to tell I think my results are too soon they’ve only been taking them for about a week, but we had a horrible rain spell that lasted 10 days and the flies are horrible I don’t want to knock the product as of today because of the changes. I will say that both of our horses have devoured the product. So must taste good

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective! Would like to see a 10lb Bag I love this product. It's really helped one very sensitive horse and two moderately sensitive horses react less to bug bites. One used to chew his belly until raw, and rub his mane and tail, every year, without fail. Now almost nothing! Just the occasional itch. I would really like to see the product available in large bags, instead of the bucket. I'm trying to reduce my plastic consumption. Or to see the savings rate of the bucket apply to the slightly smaller bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for gnats! My horse had been on this for a few years, and I wasn't sure how well it was working. Then we moved to a less-crowded place with fewer flies, and several months later I took him off of it. Within a month, he was itchy and swollen from gnats. The vet suggested that saliva from a different gnat population was the culprit, welcome to the world of sweet itch, and maybe some supplements would help. Ding! Back on the Bug Off we went, and in a couple of weeks he was fine. Horse can be picky with supplements and would never eat this alone, but he finishes it with the rest of his breakfast. Thank goodness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have been using for 1 year and very pleased We live in a hot humid climate where the mosquitoes, gnats, and flies thrive. Prior to using the SmartBug Off we were loosing the battle in keeping the horses comfortable and the flies away. I started the supplement in December and by the time the spring heat hit I noticed a substantial reduction in biting flies that continued all summer. Sprays are still required but now they are effective! The mosquitoes and gnats are a problem but the horses do not have the severe skin reactions that they had previously. The garlic scent is strong and sticks to my hands but its worth the slight aggravation. It did take the horses several weeks to adjust to the taste but now they are fine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome stuff I purchased this for my horse and it has kept most of the fly’s away. I can tell a difference between mine and the other horses that are stalled at the same place.. I will keep using this everyday!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work I have received 3 shipments and have not seen any improvement with the flies. Plus I believe my horse is allergic to the bug off formula as he has had a running nose with yellow discharge 2 days after I started. I had high hopes for this product as flies are horrible this year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This works! My appaloosa gelding has almost no mane or tail, so he needs every bit of help fighting the summer bugs! I noticed an almost immediate change once i started using this supplement. It doesn't keep all of the bugs off but i would say at least 3/4 of the small biting gnats etc no longer bite him!
    Date published: 2019-09-10
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No horseflies! My first summer using this and I have yet to see a single horsefly on Levi. He still gets pestered by stable flies, but it’s so nice not having those huge greenies chewing on him! With only one horse, I tried the bulk pack but he got fussy about eating the last third in the bag. No issues with palatability when fed via smartpac.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love smart bug off ultra!! We’ve been buying this product all summer long as it has helped our horses stay comfortable even with flies in their midst. We very rarely will have to spray them with fly spray as the smart bug off ultra keeps the flies at bay.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Maybe the flies in my area like garlic..... I had my horse on Smart BugOff (not ultra) and it was totally ineffective. So I tried BugOff Ultra. It was equally ineffective for the first several days, then my horses were mobbed by flies for a few days. I stopped the BugOff and the flies went back to a normal level. Flies levels rise and fall, and it has been a late but intense fly season in my area, so I can't say for certain that this supplement attracted flies (though it seemed like it did), but it definitely didn't do anything to reduce or repel them. Big waste of money. As for the 100% satisfaction guarantee - I paid for 3 months of BugOff and one month of BugOff Ultra. I was only refunded for 2 months of BugOff. So really it is more like a 50% guarantee. (I used BugOff for so long before requesting a refund/upgrading to Ultra because we had a cold spring and fly season started later than expected, and I wanted to give the supplement plenty of time to take effect. Obviously in retrospect I should have just cancelled after 2 months and not bothered with Ultra.)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smartbug-off ultra Results were not as good as I had hoped. Still had to spray for flies, although there were fewer bites and fewer tick bites. So, there was some improvement. But, whether the cost was worth it, jury is still out. Ki

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from You can tell a difference I board my horse who are not on any bug off supplements. My mare has been on this for 2 months now. I can tell a difference compared to the amount of flies on my horse vs the other horse. They still land on her but the flies don't swarm me like they do when I stand next to the other horses. This is not the cure all as I still have to have my horse in fly boots and a fly mask but I can indeed tell a difference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart Bug-Off Ultra is an absolute WINNER!!!!! I started this a month ago, after trying everything I have access to. I have a 12 year old Friesian mare who has basically been allergic to bugs her entire life. I have tried everything available to me and this is the 1st item that I have seen a real difference. I would turn her out with a fly mask, fly sheet, and covered in fly spray and she would still come in the next morning covered in welts. Since I started her on SmartBug-Off it is a different story and I am loving it!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! After one month I'm very happy with the results. His coat is so shiny. Tried many topical products last year for the "dandruff" in his mane and tail with no success. This product, after one month has cleared it up. I'm assuming that the flies are not biting as his tail looks great, no rubbing. Will watch more of the next month and see if there are any other changes. The smell is quite strong, but the doesn't seem to mind it.
