    Deo Lotion is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 175.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells yummy I love the smell of this stuff. The only issue I have with it is that you have to mix it fairly strongly in order to combat the worst of the fly season; therefore it doesn't last as long. It does not kill flies on contact either. But, it's not loaded with chemicals either. I spray couple times a day, more during the height of fly season.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from non-toxic protection Living right next to some cattle, flies can be brutal. I was looking for something without toxic chemicals since I have a tendency to be a little over the top when it comes to my animals. This product can be diluted 7:1 so for the price I'm getting multiple bottles of non-harmful spray, mostly essential oils. I spray twice a day, but I'm finding that my horses are enjoying the cool mist and I like the interaction with my horses. They seem overall more comfortable, too. I'm ordering more!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!! This is very good to swab on my horses belly, legs and around his head, before turn out. It has helped all the stomping at flies, and it smells great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deo Gel is great I use the deo lotion gel on my horses' midlines where the flies like to bite and also around lower legs. It works well. I have also used the spray concentrate for over 15 years and find it works as well as the ones with toxic chemicals - and it smells great!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing and expensive After reading reviews, thought this might be worth a try. Directions suggest dilution of 1/7 but I opted for 1/5. First of all, the concentrate does not mix easily or well with water, and separates every time you let it sit. But what is worse, it does NOT do a particularly good job of repelling flies. It smells great--but maybe the flies think so too. I don't think it works for longer than 30-45 mins. I'll stick with something cheaper.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good - I'm re-ordering I just can't use chemical sprays. I'm sensitive to something in them, every time I try using a traditional spray, I feel yucky the rest of the day. So I need to use alternatives. Plus, the bugs are so bad right now, it doesn't even seem to matter what you put on: nothing stops a horse fly. I think this stuff works relatively well, at least for a short time. This stuff is a better value than stuff like the Absorbine Green. That stuff costs $20 or so a bottle, while this concentrate will get you several bottles worth. The packaging says you can dilute it up to 1:7, but as a previous reviewer said, I dilute it about 1:4. I've tried making my own fly sprays but they usually smell funky, and this stuff smells nice. Plus, by the time you buy your own essential oils, which are $$ by themselves, you're not really saving any money. This stuff smells nice and is easy to mix up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A better dilution solution... After committing to using only non-toxic repellents a couple of years ago, and having a horse with pretty severe culicoides allergies (sweet itch, or whatever you want to call it), I have tried nearly every natural repellent on the market. I vastly prefer anything that comes in a concentrate so that I don't have to have giant bottles of mostly water shipped to me all the time- so CLAC gets a lot of points for that right off the bat.In terms of performance, I'd call it satisfactory for the natural repellents- which are never as effective as the uber-toxic ones, but hopefully won't give you or your animals brain damage if you have to use as much repellent as I do with an allergic mare.BUT... I find it works best at approximately a 1:4 dilution (I use a little less than 1 cup concentrate plus a little less than 4 cups of water in a 32 oz spray bottle), applied at least twice a day, to be effective for mosquitoes and gnats- which are the main species I need to repel in my area. At this dilution it costs about the same as most mid-range fly sprays on the market. If you use it stronger it's definitely more effective, but gets a bit cost prohibitive.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I was hoping DEO lotion would be much more effective on my two horses. One is retired but the other one I ride. I doused my riding horse with the lotion via spraying it on and it kind of worked for one ride. It also left blotches of wet spots on his hair (we weren't showing so it was no big deal). My biggest insect issue this year is a small biting/stinging fly that attacks the lower front legs and belly. Our climate this year has been vastly different from before and I'm not sure what these critters are or how to stop them. My horses have been doing lots of stomping in their stalls and turnouts. Mosquito Halt didn't work either!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficient against gnats and smells great This product helps against the tiniest flies that eat my horse alive in unmentionable areas. I like the smell too. It probably should be diluted a bit if your horse has sensitive skin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works Our trainer recommended Clac. It is working great against biting insects in MO. We also sent some to my sister in SC where she says it is great for their biting nats! A little goes a long way too.
    Date published: 2015-08-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price! This is my go to fly spray in the summer in Michigan. Works great for flies at roughly $5 per spray bottle (28 oz using 1 to 6 ratio). Just note it doesn't do much for mosquitoes. I use Mosquito Halt for that.
    Date published: 2015-07-27
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing outstanding for such high-priced stuff. Expected way more protection because of the description (and price), but the 1:7 ratio didn't keep the flies away any better than any other product I've used. Feel like I wasted my money. Next batch I'll mix 2:6 and see if that makes a difference. It may be all natural stuff but it's got a very strong chemical smell.
    Date published: 2015-07-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even repels horseflies I've used this product for over 15 years, and love it. There is ONE BIG concern that people need to be aware of. If you have a lot of Japanese Beetles in your area, understand that this product will ATTRACT them to your horse. I use it in the years we have low JB populations. Some horses react rather violently to a JB landing on them as if it was a horsefly. It's a dark flying insect, similar size to a horsefly. Horses aren't so good at identifying insect species - they're just worried it's going to bite them. No repellent works better, IMO.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff!!!Used this spray it in a buggy area and the bugs did not even come near my horse. This spray is awesome.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far working really well! We used this stuff years ago and for the longest time I couldn't find it. I remembered it as being potent and effective. So I ordered it. It's REALLY potent- when the box arrived I could smell it and thought that maybe it had spilled in the box. It hadn't. I was just able to smell it through the sealed bottle, the plastic bag, the crumpled paper AND the cardboard box. It's strong but doesn't have a horrible smell. So I watered it down 1:4 to see how effective that would be and determine if that was too strong/weak. It seems to work well for me at this concentration level. Repels flies well and when I manage to actually spray a fly it falls over and dies. It seems to hold up to mild sweating but I can't say for sure after heavy sweating- I usually just reapply. Very cost effective- the initial bottle is kinda pricey but when you water it down you get many more bottles out of that one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good alternative to chemicals This actually works ok for a chemical free repellent. I got the concentrate so I can mix it appropriately acording to my horses sensitivity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally affordable bug spray that works Concentrated to give more effective bug prevention
    Date published: 2015-06-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works better than anything else This is my second year using this stuff. You mix it as concentrated as suits your needs and it keeps the flys, but especially, the knats off. Their coats gleam and I think they even like the smell. I sure do. My vet tells me that pyrethrins break down within 15 minutes in sun light. This stuff lasts all day. And the price is right - I'm paying less than $4 for a quart of spray.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from smart flex sr great Deo lotion not I bought this and the flies are still in love with my horse I wipe it on with a rage or sponge and the seem to love him ..
    Date published: 2015-04-19
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Smells great, average performance.. Bought this at a show after the horrible realization that I had forgotton to pack my own fly spray for my more sensitive thoroughbred gelding. The perks: it smells fantastic and is easy to apply, especially the lotion! Great for areas that you don't necessarily want to spray, i.e. their face. The downsides: while it was certainly better than the alternative of just going fly-spray-less, I was a bit under-enthused with the performance, especially for the price. I noticed my horse developed some irritated skin on his chest where we had applied it, which luckily was taken care of after a good bath.Final verdict? Not necessarily worth the extra money. I'll probably be sticking to the more traditional sprays, or trying Smartpak's new proprietary brand this year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing stuff! I was told by a friend of mine about this product, and let me try her lotion on my horses, the horses love it! Plus the smell is so good, I use it on myself! Keeps the bugs off their faces and legs, conditions their skin, gives them a pretty shine, and doesn't leave a greasy residue! It's great! I'll always have it in my barn!
