Overview

Why We Love This

Ecovet, available in a fresh scent, is a new alternative to traditional fly products containing pyrethrins or essential oils. Research has shown that certain fatty acids act as insect attractants, while others are repellents. Ecovet uses a proprietary mixture of naturally occurring fatty acids that confuses and overwhelms the insect’s normal directional ability, so the insect is unable to locate your horse as its next victim. It’s like having a GPS system that is shouting confusing and conflicting directions at you … until you finally give up.

Available in a 4 oz Mini Spray Bottle, an 18 oz. Spray Bottle, and a Gallon Refill Bottle (1 Gallon Contains Enough Ecovet to Refill an 18 oz. Bottle 7 Times!)

Made in USA

Reviews
Ecovet Fly Repellent is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 206.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I regret this purchase Sadly, I have to leave a negative review. I was thinking this would be a great option, despite the price, because my wonderful vet recommended it. Now, I’m in a city with few boarding options. The best place for my horse has very poor manure management, which means many flies. I keep trying different sprays and had high hopes, but EcoVet didn’t last for 30 minutes. It has such an offensive smell, it makes my horse snort (and I hold my breath). It attracts a lot of dust. My next purchase at the local TSC was for Bronco(e). Seems to be a much better option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works!!! This works!! Gnats were all over my horse's face one day when I removed her mask. I rubbed some on her face and they were gone. I live in south Alabama. Gnats and noseeums are HORRIBLE. I had 2 growths removed. I rubbed this around the places and nothing has bothered them. Healed up fine. It doesn't smell the greatest but I have smelled alot worse. It makes my horse alot more comfortable and I don't have to spray everyday. So I can stand take the smell. She is allergic to biting bugs abd it makes her tail fall out. This stopped it along with the itch ease I have used all summer. Great products. Try a bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spray for flys I bought this and have used it only a few times but the flys do not bother the horses.
Date published: 2022-08-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great but smells FOUL Pros: it works great to keep regular flies, mosquitoes, and no-see-ums off your horse and anything it touches. Cons: It smells FOUL. My horse coughs and sneezes, it triggers asthma attacks in everyone around you, it lingers around the barn... It also attracts horseflies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite! I wish I had found this sooner! The Ecovet Fly Repellent is my new favorite fly spray for several reasons. First, this fly spray actually works! I apply it every morning and feel that my horses are still comfortable until the following day. Secondly, it is great for my sensitive-skinned Thoroughbreds. Naturally occurring fatty acids in this product interfere with insects' GPS systems. Therefore, the insects are confused and fly in the other direction. Lastly, it only requires a very small amount. I do one spray on each leg, over the withers, and over the hind quarters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't be turned off by the smell! I've been using this spray for at least three years now, and nothing else compares. It works completely different than most fly sprays, as it uses fatty acids to make your horse unattractive to biting insects. Those fatty acids are harmless but can make you and your horse sneeze when you first apply it (I've never had any long term negative effects). It doesn't irritate my horse's very sensitive skin, and a little goes a long way! It is the only thing I've ever seen actually repel the terrible springtime gnats up here in New England. It definitely works better the longer you use it, as the flies learn to just avoid your horse all together after a while. As long as I'm not bathing my horse a lot, etc, I only need to put it on like twice a week, which makes it last longer. (I recommend putting it on legs, underbelly, chest, and just behind the ears.) I keep a different "natural" type spray around as a backup, or for added protection when I'm going to trail ride, or it's a particularly buggy day. I don't buy sprays for how they smell, good smelling ones can be nice, but effectiveness is my priority, and this one is very effective.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great but smelly This seems to work well but you have to hold your breath so you don’t pass out from chemical inhalation.
Date published: 2022-06-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fly spray that works! Just don't breathe it in! I just bought this fly spray- and wow, it actually works! I only had to spray it on my horse once for our entire shoeing session, compared to reapplying every 10-15 minutes with all the natural and pesticide fly sprays I've tried. Also, I only had to use a few spritzes so it's quite economical. However, it does cause minor respiratory irritation if breathed in, especially with me being an asthmatic. So I always hold my breath when spraying and also don't apply it near my horses's face as it makes him sneeze too. But to me, having a less toxic formula that actually works is so worth it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strong smell - difficult bottle I am about to find out if it works because the spray bottle was so difficult I had to wipe it on my horse and managed to coat myself as well. The sprayer was too long, and the nozzle on/off was not labeled and only twisted in one direction. I have never been stymied by a sprayer before.
Date published: 2022-04-27
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wish it worked better. Bought this a month ago and have tried it for a few weeks and am not as impressed as I wanted to be. Other reviewers stated ot smells bad and it does!!! Burns my nostrils and I can't imagine what it does to my horse. Wish I bought the small bottle first but was so convinced by the ratings and reviews that bought the big bottle. Won't be using rest of it...doesn't last very long once it's on the horse and the smell is just too much.

A truly new alternative to traditional fly products containing pyrethrins or essential oils. Ecovet is a proprietary mixture of natural food-grade fatty acids and silicone oil. These are blended with our special fragrance that includes sage and lavender. Our sprayer and bottle combination was designed to provide an easy-to-hold application system that allows for a more pleasant spraying experience.
