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!)

Reviews
Ecovet Fly Repellent is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 212.
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.
Date published: 2021-08-23
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works OK but very irritating to lungs I bought the smallest size to trial, I think it works pretty well, I don't need to use much, I just spray on the pasterns good, a little up the leg and under the belly primarily. The smell is different, neither good or bad. But the spray is very irritating to my lungs and throat, and also to my horses, it seems. 2 of my horses normally stand for spray without a halter, but the one tries to get away when I use this spray. The other one does a lot of blowing/sneezing to clear his sinuses. I definitely wouldn't spray anywhere near the face. I hold my breath and try to get done quickly, but it still makes me cough a little. I think I'll use the rest as a wipe instead of spray product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually works! I was skeptical that an all natural product would work but I tried it. It's smell is overpowering, you will choke if you inhale it, all the other horses snort and sneeze when you spray it, but it works. Really well. Shockingly well. Just stand upwind and out of the barn when you spray.
Date published: 2021-08-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only fly spray that works Although this fly spray has the worst smell, practically makes you choke when you spray it, and kills if you inhale the smallest bit of it, it is seriously the only fly spray that works. I wish the bottle was bigger for how much product you get and how much you pay. For like $20 a bottle, I’d rather it be the size of the normal white bottles Bronco spray rather than this size, but that’s becides the point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This Really Works! Love this stuff, the flies hate it! Best fly repellent I have used in a long time....
Date published: 2021-06-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works! This is the only fly spray I'll buy anymore, because although it is expensive per ounce, it actually WORKS, and a little goes a long way. In fact, the strong odor will make you use it sparingly. I stand upwind and spray it on my guy's legs and rump, well away from his nose/mouth (to shield him from the smell). It keeps the flies at bay far longer without reapplication than any other fly spray I've tried. Keep converting folks at my barn, too. Try it, you'll like it!
Date published: 2021-06-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works! This spray really does work well keeping the flys and gnats off my horses. A little goes a long way. I just lightly spray the ears, legs, and belly and flys don't land! It does have a strong odor as other people have mentioned but it isn't really an issue since this works with only a light spray, the horse doesn't need to be drenched, like with some other sprays.
Date published: 2021-05-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! Have been using this since last year, we find it very productive!
Date published: 2021-04-19
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not super Despite saying new better smell, this product's smell is very chemical and nearly gags/burns you if you inhale it, which is hard to avoid if you are in a barn. I can't imagine with that strong of a burning sensation in my airway that the product is ok on the skin? Also, I bought two bottles and they both lasted only a few days before the entire contents leaked out the top when they tipped over. Now both my barn and my trailer tack room reek of this stuff and I don't have fly spray, not that I wanted to really use this stuff. It certainly isn't what came to mind with the name "EcoVet"
Date published: 2020-09-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works! I tried other fly sprays, like ultrashield, which didn't do squat. This one definitely has a different smell, but it works wonderfully. Plus, I've found that even a small volume does wonders. Definitely recommended.
Date published: 2020-09-01
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Respiratory concerns If you have asthma/COPD/emphysema DO NOT use this product. Your inhaler won't help you. Very irritating to lung tissue! The ingredients are not as innocent as they sound.
Date published: 2020-08-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! I bought this under a month ago but the very first time I ever used it I feel like it definitely kept the flies away. my horse went from stomping and tail swishing to standing quietly. It is strong though and had other people coughing at the barn so the scent does linger a little.
Date published: 2020-08-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well on SOME flies but makes us COUGH It seems like this works well on regular barn flies but NOT deer flies when trail riding. It also makes me and two of my horses cough even when applied outside. I like the concept but can’t get my mind around if it’s so great why does it make us cough??
Date published: 2020-08-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good results for sweet itch I use this on my horse and it helps keep no seeums away so my horse is a lot less itchy and no longer scratches himself raw. Hes a much happier horse now.
Date published: 2020-08-08
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very strong smell made me cough and horses sneeze. Poor insect control
Date published: 2020-08-06
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Neither horrible nor fabulous I bought an 18 ounce bottle of Ecovet almost a month ago. As of today, the bottle is almost empty. Although the manufacturer says it last 2-3 days, Georgia is hot and humid. Our horses have to be rinsed daily to prevent heat stress. So, I had to apply Ecovet every day. The good thing was that there was a definite decrease in the number of flies bothering my horse within 2 minutes of application. I never used the original scent and have no way to compare it to the new scent. But, do heed the reviews that say the scent is very strong. The first time I applied the product, I sprayed it on my horse in the barn aisleway. My horse started blowing and other horses in the vicinity started coughing and blowing. Every time I applied it after that, I sprayed Ecovet on my horse outside, at a distance from the barn. I also learned to be mindful of the direction of any breeze (no matter how light) so as not to asphyxiate myself.
Date published: 2020-08-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely works! I'm just finishing my first time purchase of the 18oz bottle of Ecovet and it works so great I've ordered the gallon size for more economical refills. I tested this product on one side of my horse and my old fly spray on the other side during a one hour hack in our very buggy woods and waterways area. NOTHING even landed on the Ecovet side of my horse!!! The new scent is the only one I have used, and although strong, my horse nor I found it overwhelming.
Date published: 2020-07-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works Just used Ecovet for the first time today and was delighted to see that worked very well on one of my horses that us particularly bothered by flies. I would recommend that you spray outdoors as the scent is fairly strong.
Date published: 2020-07-09
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works but VERY strong smell. This spray works well on the insects but the smell is awful. It is not a horrible smell but rather VERY strong and lingers. You have to spray downwind or it would be way too much for you or the horse. I have had it cause respiratory issues in both horses and people. I had one horse that every single time I tried ecovet on him he started coughing. I stopped using the product and it went in the trash.
Date published: 2020-07-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works This stuff does work but read the directions. You only spray on the belly and the legs. It says on the back of the head but to "use care". I would not spray the back of the head. It does have a very strong smell, which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. My boss got it for her sensitive stallion who seemed to be always attacked by flies. I would treat his legs and belly with this and he barely swishes a tail when he was turned out. I am definitely buying this for my sensitive mare.
Date published: 2020-06-21
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wrks well enough What detracts me from this product is the smell--to me it's nasty and takes my breath away!
Date published: 2020-06-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse is sensitive to many fly sprays. I used all natural, water based ones with minimal effectiveness after a few hours. I switched to Ecovet this spring & can see a noticeable difference in the absence of flies on my horse. His skin is happy too.
Date published: 2020-06-07
Rated 1 out of 5 by from just about choked don't apply inside the barn. But it was raining.. horrible. and the flies couldn't care less... will return.
Date published: 2020-06-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product New improved scent. Much better than original scent. Does a good job of keeping the flies away. But like any fly repellent, it must be applied frequently and it is a bit pricey. Bought 4 bottles hoping it would last through the summer. Will most likely need more.
Date published: 2020-05-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product works. This product has been good at keeping the flies of my horse. I wish it was more nature friendly, but with the hot, humid weather, it has allowed my horse to stay out longer without being bothered by flies.
Date published: 2019-09-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from powerful scent but works I almost asphixiated myself and our horse with spraying too much. I learned to do short bursts. I also recalled customer services advice. about where to spray. The scent is overwhelming so MUST use outside and away from hay your horse is eating or it is ruined. We let hay stay outside to "dry" then used as underbedding.
Date published: 2019-08-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works! This fly spray works better than everything else I have tried so far this summer. It has an unusual scent, reminds me of old fashion strong smelling hand soap. It isn't unpleasant, just a very strong odor. Both my horses don't mind the odor and love not being pestered by the flies. I like it because I can use less of it and it keeps them happy.
Date published: 2019-08-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works Several different species of determined flies were totally repelled for the duration of a 2 hour ride, even with sweat.
Date published: 2019-07-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT My gilding has had an allergic reaction to bug bites every summer with past few years to the point that there were raw areas where he rubbed himself trying to scratch his itching. Nothing really seem to help. I bought this fly spray in hopes it would help is allergic reaction to the bug bites. It works! He still has his hair this summer which means I can show him. It makes us both very happy.
Date published: 2019-07-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the rest I have waited a while to write this review. I am an asthmatic, and one of my horses is also very allergic. I spray as directed (small amounts) outside, and we are both fine. The Ecovet seems to be working great on the flies. In fact, I stopped using the fly boots, because the horses seem comfortable enough. Only time it does not work are when the B-52 flies are around. I pulled out the poison (ultrashield) for them. Not sure that did any better.
