    SmartBug-Off® Ultra Pellets is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 348.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work on my horse . He has extreme sensitivity to all bugs that love horses and I notice no difference since using this product...sorry I sure wish it did.
    Date published: 2018-05-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No flies! I didn’t really know what to expect, but I was really pleased to see almost zero activity in the manure. It really takes away a lot of the unpleasantness of picking during fly season. The only down side is that the odor is really strong. I wasn’t sure my horses would eat it, but they don’t seem to mind. Makes their breath a little smelly for a while though, haha!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I bought this for my horse that has allergies from the flies and bugs. So far I'm very pleased
    Date published: 2018-04-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It worked! For two summers my horse developed increasing sensitivity to bug bites and more of her body covered in hives and wheals. Despite fly sheets, masks, boots and constant spray, the situation worsened. Before resorting to prescription medication, I gave Bug Off Ultra a try last summer. After a couple days, the horse got used to the flavor. BOU calmed her allergic reactions to almost nothing for the rest of the summer. I've got Bug Off Ultra on autoship for this summer. Give it a try, it may work for you too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from seems to be working our two horses were getting sore places on the belly line from insect bites-- the areas are healing , so results looks to be positive
    Date published: 2018-03-19
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not effective I used regular Bug Off and Bug Off Ultra for several years before realizing that I needed something stronger. Horses with insect allergies, sweet itch, etc. where I board do not respond to these supplements. Do some research, and you will find better alternatives -- not cures -- but more effective control.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garlic odor but the horses love it Started using it a couple weeks ago as the bugs will be coming out in April here. Anxious to see the results. I wasn't sure if the horses would eat it because of the strong garlic odor but they gobble it up. Thank you so much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally Something That Works! We use this for our donkey. She will not let us spray her with anything. We bought her late in her life out of a bad situation and she obviously has trust issues. We had tried many supplements to keep flies off of her. But, she continued to get chewed up year after year. I mean literally areas of her legs covered in flies producing raw flesh. This stuff has been amazing. It took a bit to build up in her system. But, it works! So nice having the auto refill. Don't have to worry about running out. Also, love the daily packets. So easy and the cups are recyclable.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from works some Bought this 2 months ago am on our 2nd box have not seen ticks but she is still getting fly bites
    Date published: 2017-08-18
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definetly helps I've used this during past summers, but I usually started it in the Spring before the flies got too bad. I always wondered if it really worked because I still ended up using fly spray anyway. This year I decided to go without it. The flies have been really bad because of the mild winter and a lot of rain. My one horse is super sensitive and would run all over the pasture and in and out of his stall until he was dripping wet with sweat trying to get away from the flies. I still have to use fly spray on him, but since starting him on this about a month ago he's now able to graze and be outside without issue so I definitely know this supplement helps.
    Date published: 2017-08-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works! Brought my horse home from training and he immediately had an allergic reaction to the bugs here...started him on this product and within a few weeks no more hives or welts from the miserable bugs.
    Date published: 2017-08-17
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really wish this had worked Based on all the great reviews, I tried this on both my horses - with no success. I couldn't see any difference in the number of flies on them compared to before using this supplement. Glad it works for others but can't recommend it myself.
    Date published: 2017-08-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I use the smart bug off every summer you can really tell the difference with fly control when riding with other horses not on this supplement. And as a bonus their coats are fabulous!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from SMARTBUG-OFF ULTRA I was very disappointed with this product. I fed it to my mare who is very sensitive to bug bites. I have had her on it for a month or so and did not see any improvement. She is still being bothered by pesty flies and has welts from being bitten.
    Date published: 2017-07-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! Our donkeys eat the bug-off pellets with their food and ingest it with no problems. We are very happy with this product.
    Date published: 2017-07-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works GREAT! My friend told me to buy this product when my horse broke out in hives from all of the bugs. We've been using it for a month now and she's never looked better! It worked so well I put all of my horses on it for the hot months.
    Date published: 2017-07-20
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bug off I am pretty certain this product makes a diffence since both of my horses seem happier this summer with less bug bites.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Negative Results So sorry this product did not change the fly problem in my Mule and she has been on it for several weeks. Could be the Horse reacts more positive than the Mule and I hate to have to give this negative report but facts are facts. Your other products that I have used in the past have always done there job, just not this one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be helpibg Have fed this for a few weeks. My horse is not scratching on everything or itching all the hair off of his legs this year. So far, so good. Will probably continue through the fall.
    Date published: 2017-07-12
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely helps a fly sensitive horse! Here in Central Florida, annoying bugs abound! My mare is doing much better this year than she did last year. I started her on SmartBug-Off early in Spring. Then went half & half with SmartBug-Off Ultra as May progressed. Now she gets a full dose of the Ultra daily and I spray her with a fly repellent. She is much more comfortable and happier now.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not help at all! I was disappointed with this supplement. I'm moving on to something else.
    Date published: 2017-07-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells Funny But Works Great So far I've used this supplement for a month and have seen a nice decrease in the number of flies. It does have a strong smell but nothing my pony wouldn't eat up. It's nice to find a product that helps not only with the bugs here in FL but also keeps a nice healthy coat.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smartbug-off ultra pellets We put our 3 horses on the smatbuggoff pellets. So far we have noticed flies landing, but not biting. Exception to this is deer flies and large b52 flies. Not sure of what they are actually called. Overall we are pleased withat this procduct.
    Date published: 2017-07-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smartbug-off ultra pellets I purchased this product hoping to help with the horse flies/other bugs we have a problem with in NC. The flies are still around, but not biting/drawing blood as prior to using bugoff. We are pleasantly surprised with this product. It is not 100% but it has helped.
    Date published: 2017-06-29
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not much difference My mare is super sensitive ti fly bites so I thought I'd give this a try. She's been on it for 3 months. I don't see any difference in the number of flies on her versus my other horses but we are approaching peak fly season so I'll keep her on it just in case it's helping more than I know.
    Date published: 2017-06-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I haven't used this long enough yet to really know I've never used anything from Smartpak that I didn't like. But I haven't had this in the barn long enough to see a difference yet.
    Date published: 2017-06-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally relief! I decided to try this product about a month ago. My 11 year old Quarter Horse by this time of year he was usually rubbing the hair off all over his body because of the itching from the little bug bites that he would get from the noseeums on to other insects. Couldn't show him looking like that so finally this year we tried bug off Ultra and it seems to be working. I think we finally found our spring and summer relief.
    Date published: 2017-06-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, it works Have a mustang mare who was covered in flies/mosquito bites. Wouldn't tolerate anything put ON her so hoped this would work. It DOES. After one week I noticed fewer insects and bites. After 1 month, 95% of bugs leave her alone. She's also particular about what she will eat. She was surprised at the smell but still tried it, and kept right on eating it. Great product.
