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

Ecovet Fly Repellent is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 197.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Made my nose burn This product when sprayed according to directions, and keeping it well well away from my horse’s face was so strong it burned my nose and made my horse sneeze violently. The next day, I sprayed only lightly and outside of the stall., not even on the neck with the same result. I shall not be using any more of it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works! I bought this a few months ago with my smartpaks based on the good reviews. My 23 year old paint gelding is a fly magnet and was covered in bites despite being fly sprayed twice a day. Ecovet flyspray really works! Just a few sprays per side keep the flys from landing on him all day long. The only downside is the smell is very strong. This gelding doesn't mind it but it makes my other gelding sneeze.
Date published: 2019-05-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works!! Must use in a well ventilated area because it will make you cough! Works fantastically without exposing your horse to dangerous chemicals.
Date published: 2019-04-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works This works so great, I use it despite the smell. Phenomenal fly repellent
Date published: 2019-04-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever! This stuff works. Do not breathe it or let your horse breathe too much of it, but if you need to keep flies off, this is the product for you. I used it camping where there are tons of gnats and all the other horses were swishing tails and my guy was standing calmly. So glad I had this spray. You can also use a small amount on the back of fly mask ears and it helps keep the bugs away from their faces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT WORKS!!! The ONLY fly spray I’ve ever used that really does keep those leg biting flies off.
Date published: 2018-10-08
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Horrid smell, but actually works! This fly spray actually takes my breath away it smells so horrible. The smell is of intense chemical I’m not even sure how it’s natural. However it actually does really work!! I will not order this again until they figure out how to make it smell better. It makes all the horses in the barn sneeze until the spray settles, and it literally takes my breath away.
Date published: 2018-09-07
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells horrible! Doesn't work well The product says 'new scent' so I'm guessing there were issues before, and unfortunately it smells horrible. We could smell it from several feet away when we first put it on (nearly unbearable), but then there were flies on my horse 20 min later. Very disappointing.
Date published: 2018-08-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from If only fly spray still worked... I ordered a bottle of this after having it recommended by a friend. As most people I know, nothing is working this year for flies, and it seems to be even worse in New England. We have been having a hot humid weather in Maine this year and I have yet to find a fly spray that works. I was hopeful that this would work, but my horse didn't stomp, bite, swish any less than he did before I used this. I will be placing an order for a fly sheet and fly boots as it seems the flies have built up a tolerance to fly spray. I also don't like that the bottle states 85% other ingredients. I wish it showed the entire list of what is in the bottle. The smell is also horrendous.
Date published: 2018-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only fly spray that works I started using this spray this year and will not be without it again! It's literally the only spray I can use on my horse that repels stable flies and doesn't cause his skin to react (unlike Pyranha). It is VERY strong and I only spray it outside the barn - it doesn't seem to bother my horse, but it causes me to start coughing if I inhale it. I only wish it came in an in-between size - 18 oz doesn't last long, and a gallon is way too much! Tip: wear a painter's mask/respirator and use a brush or towel when applying.
Date published: 2018-08-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can’t get past the smell, but does work. So, I know that this stuff works well compared to a lot of other sprays. It works differently, and there is value in keeping in my fly control arsenal, but I find the smell pretty unbearable! My horses don’t like it either. Strong, weird chemical odor.
Date published: 2018-08-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from EcoVet New scent! Still find it very pricey. I give it a 8 on a 1-10 scale.
Date published: 2018-07-19
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Anti-breathing Bought first gallon mid July. How can this AMINO ACID new scent formula be safe for horses when I cannot breathe when applying ......the benzene in it chokes off air in applier. Happened with everyone in our barn. I put a finger swip on my cheek to check on skin reception .... had to wash it immd as it burned my face ...... so is it burning my horses skin??????? Please reformulate as this current model will not be repurchased.
Date published: 2018-07-19
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Allergic Reaction I use this on two different horses and both after a couple of days had hives in the areas that it was sprayed lower legs, and under carriage.
Date published: 2018-07-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Keeps flies at bay, but irritating This spray has a soapy smell, and is irritating to eyes and nose if it blows towards you (my horse also finds it irritating and blows while I'm spraying.) This can be managed by brushing it in as you spray. It does work though - unlike other flysprays, the flies do not come near the horse after using. I think it lasts about a day. I am finding that I'm going through it fast... At this price and considering the irritation factor, I probably wouldn't order again.
Date published: 2018-07-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have tried this last summer Really amazed at how effective this spray is. Using less than half of our usual amount of fly spray daily in the very humid and damp South, horses out 24/7. Able to put it on non sweating areas on very hot days and it still works fairly well. Tail swishing, running into the shed from the flies and stomping gone. Odor is tolerable, you do not want to breath it in but true for all fly sprays We use a bandana or allergy mask when spraying it on and that works just fine. Well worth the price for comfort of the horses.
Date published: 2018-07-10
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Improved scent not better I had hoped the improved scent would keep me and the horses from coughing and sneezing when spraying onto the horses. I will not buy again.
Date published: 2018-07-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! We bought this to try back in April. Used it at 1 horse show and it works great. Don't have to spray the horses nearly as often for the flies.
Date published: 2018-07-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works - it really works! This spray is amazing. I have used it for about four weeks and it's hands down exactly what it is advertised. The true test was at a show yesterday where the deer flies and Japanese beetles were everywhere. The bugs literally flew around us but didn't land. It was an 85 degree day and I reapplied once my gelding had worked up a sweat and been sponged halfway through the day. Like other reviews, I advise not to be downwind and inhale. You will gag and cough. I'd also keep it away from the horse's face for that same reason. It's not cheap but then you get what you pay for. I'm a believer. My horses' comfort is worth every penny this costs!
Date published: 2018-07-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from New smell is worse than original This stuff does work...but the new "lavender" smell is worse than the original "crayons stuck up your nose" smell. I use lavender oils a lot and this new awful scent must be a result of combining the lavender with the original smell. I can't wait to get home to shower off-just riding in the car with the smell on me from the mist that got on me while spraying the horse is tough. But it does work so I use it on days the flies are worse than usual.
Date published: 2018-07-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! We use it in our restaurants and it works great!!!
Date published: 2018-06-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from best fly spray! I didn't know what to expect when I got this spray cause just like the rest of you no matter what fly spray you get your horse gets eaten alive! But this stuff is down right AWESOME! ! I'm definitely buying more!!
Date published: 2018-06-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not at well as expected There was less flies and the one that landed seem to quickly fly off, including a determined huge horse fly that tried 4 times to find a spot before giving up. Smell like a dirty sponge, but works better than everything else that I have tried so far.
Date published: 2018-06-20
Rated 1 out of 5 by from awful smell didn't really work well and the smell is awful and made my horse cough and i got sick to my stomach, i sprayed it outside still bad
Date published: 2018-06-19
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works for a short time, and smells like H&*% This fly spray will keep the flies off for an hour or two - maybe better then your average fly spray, but it smells like dead meat mixed with cheap perfume - and it really smells! My friend can smell my horse when I ride by in the arena - it is that strong! Meanwhile - a few hours later, my horse is still covered in flies. And the stuff is expensive - not sure it is worth it...
Date published: 2018-06-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Flyspray This stuff works like magic! Definitely keeps the flies off the legs and chest but you have to be outside to spray it and be upwind of it. I recommend spraying once or twice, then move the horse away from your spray area. Do NOT use this stuff inside the barn. All the horses will be coughing as I found out. Also, it doesn't smell as bad to me as other reviewers have mentioned.
Date published: 2018-06-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive This spray works & lasts best of all the fly spray products I have tried. I would not say “best” or (“fresh”) about it’s smell however. Also it’s rather inconvenient that you can’t apply it when the horse is wet.
Date published: 2018-06-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Read reviews wanted to try It definately was good at keeping the flies away however my TB is 33 years old and it burned his skin worked great on the 19 year old horse
Date published: 2018-06-15
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seems very effective – but the smell is awful! I don't know what the old scent was, but this "fresh new scent" is bad. After spraying it both my horse (who has Inflammatory Airway Disease) and I have trouble breathing and start coughing; I have to use it outside and upwind. Once the mist dissipates, the scent is tolerable, and the product seems to work effectively.
Date published: 2018-06-13
Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORSE HAD SKIN REACTION My horse is really bothered by the flies and this product was highly recommended by fellow equestrians. I tried this and it caused skin reaction and my horse lost the hair on his legs. I am not happy with this product at all, and my horses coat looks terrible just in time for show season.
