Instructions for Use:
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.


HORSES AND PONIES: To repel and kill Horn Flies, Stable Flies, House Flies, Horse Flies, Deer Flies, Mosquitoes and Gnats, apply EQUISECT™ Fly Repellent as directed below.

As a Spray: Remove excess dirt and dust. Apply a light spray mist sufficient to wet the surface of the hair while brushing lightly against the lay of the hair. Avoid spraying in eyes and mucous membranes. Apply with a sponge or soft cloth to these areas.

As a Wipe-On: Thoroughly brush horse to remove dirt and dust. Extremely dirty horses should be shampooed, rinsed and allowed to dry before applying. Use a sponge or clean soft cloth.

Apply EQUISECT™ Fly Repellent to point before runoff over areas to be protected. Pay special attention to legs, belly, shoulders, neck and facial areas. Avoid eyes and mucous membranes.

Repeat treatment daily or at intervals necessary to give continued protection.

To control blood-sucking lice apply EQUISECT™ Fly Repellent to the infested areas of the animal using a stiff brush to get the spray to the base of the hair. Repeat every 2 to 3 weeks if required.

DOGS AND CATS: To control fleas and ticks on dogs and cats, apply EQUISECT™ Fly Repellent starting at the animal’s head (avoiding the eyes, nose and mouth as you spray). Make sure the entire body is covered, including the legs, underbody and tail. While spraying, fluff the hair so that the spray will penetrate to the skin. Make sure spray wets the animal thoroughly. Avoid contact with genitalia. Repeat treatment daily. Do not use on dogs and cats under 12 weeks of age. Consult a veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, pregnant, medicated or nursing animals.

Sensitivities may occur after using ANY pesticide products for pets. If signs of sensitivity occur bathe your pet with mild soap and rinse with large amounts of water. If signs continue, consult a veterinarian immediately.

PET AREAS: To control fleas and ticks in premises, thoroughly spray infested areas, pet beds, quarters, nearby cracks and crevices, along and behind baseboards, moldings, window and door frames with EQUISECT™ Fly Repellent. Fresh bedding should be placed in the animal’s quarters following treatment. Repeat as needed. Concurrent treatment of pets with a registered on animal product is recommended. Allow all treated surfaces to dry before permitting pets to reoccupy area.

    EquiSect Fly Repellent is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 80.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product!!! I have an 18 year old OTTB that is really sensitive to fly sprays. She used to pin her ears and stomp her feet every time I would fry spray her. Well... not anymore! I've been using it for over a month and she could care less when I go to fly spray her. Because it is a water based product I don't put it on her after a bath until she is fully dried. Also, beware it smells like Vic's Vapor Rub. I kinda like the smell... lol

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells great, doesn't irritate my skin I bought this fly spray as an alternative to harsh chemical ones which irritate my skin. It's not totally effective but I haven't found a spray that is.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't really work on my horse I've used this for a few days now and it really hasn't helped much. My horse is a dark bay and is really sensitive to the flies. I sprayed it on and then turned him out and saw that he was just as bothered by the flies as he would be without the spray. Not saying this spray doesn't work, just saying it didn't work for my horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fly spray- I like it better than others! Been using this for about 2 months and really like the scent and the way it goes on. Seems to work better than the others I have used in the past.
    Date published: 2015-08-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! I got this about a month ago and while my mare isn't too keen on the current flavor, it was nicely packaged (no bugs), is "horse proof," and the flavors smell great. Not for horses uninterested in food as it is too much "work" for my gelding.
    Date published: 2015-07-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super effective & smells great! I bought this for my horse because she's allergic to strong fly sprays. Since it's all-natural, I had to try it. I've been using since the start of this summer and it's the best spray I've used so far! It has a great smell and keeps the flies off really well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective! And smells great! Bought it because it wasn't overpowering with smell. Realized how effective it is after trying!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My back up spray I use this spray as a back up when I run out of the ingredients I use to make my own natural formula. It works well and has been used in both SC and FL where bugs can be relentless. The scent is pleasantly subtle.
    Date published: 2015-05-30
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay I have been looking for a natural fly spray that works and this is probably not it. Florida is on a different level with bugs and flies and this doesn't quite cut through them. I felt like I had to keep reapplying. While it did work it didn't work as long as I had hoped. I think in a less extreme bug place this fly spray would work better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best natural spray I've found! My vet and I both prefer to use natural fly spray when possible. The EquiSect is the best I've found (I think it's telling that my local farm supply quit carrying all the other natural brands but this one--but I can't get the gallon refills from them). The scent is pleasant enough and I can use it on myself too. You do have to spray liberally with this stuff for it to work, so I do go through more of it in a season, but the tradeoff for no chemicals is worth it to me. It doesn't repel ticks, though, so when I turn my gelding out in the long spring grass I do use some Endure on his underside.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for the $ Seems to work as well as any of the other natural, less expensive products. Definitely does more than nothing, but not as potent as some of the more toxic options.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff! I have been using this during black fly, and now mosquito season. I have been happy with this product and use it for trail rides as well as to spray my livestock that lives on buggier parts of our property. It works better than other sprays I have used and I like that it sound have a super chemically smell or feel.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Compares poorly with water I bought this product for a horse with skin reaction to stronger products. I have sprayed this product on flies and they don't even go away! I'd rather be using water, cheaper and eventually the flies will drown!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not For My Horse My horse is esp bothered by flies but is allergic to flysprays with heavy chemicals, which is why I bought it. It didn't last very long & I wouldn't buy it again.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good price but didn't work This only lasted about two hours when I used it, I would have to constantly have to spray my horses throughout the day it's a good price but not worth it as it just doesn't keep the flys away for long
    Date published: 2011-11-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Fly Spray I absolutely LOVE this fly spray. It smells great - like fresh squeezed lemons. I've never had a problem with flies when using it, as compared to other brands of fly sprays. The price is great and it is safe for you, your horse, and the enviorment.
    Date published: 2011-09-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Fly Spray! My favorite fly spray; by far. It smells great, seems gentle, and works well! It does a pretty good job at repelling flies but I've found it doesn't repel as long as more heavy duty sprays. I don't, however, need or like a spray that lasts super long. This spray fits my needs and I will continue to use it for a very long time. Also adds some shine!
    Date published: 2011-09-20
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great! Love this flyspray. My horse has reactions to alot of flysprays BUT not this one. It is great. I can use it everyday and it seems to keep most bugs away.
    Date published: 2011-07-29
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Equisect Fly Repellant Unfortunately, the horse needs to 'literally' have a bath in this product to be effective at all. Also, the effects are short lived. This products is not suited for the biting flies or mosquitoes.
    Date published: 2011-07-27
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works For Only a Few Minutes I bought this product for my sensitive mare who reacted to just about anything chemical. Although this fly spray did not cause any sort of reaction, it also only kept the flies off for about 10-15 minutes before they were back on her again. I finally spot-tested Pyranha fly spray and she had no reaction to that, and it worked. I realize that natural fly sprays aren't going to work as well as chemical fly sprays--but I certainly expected more from this spray then what I got out of it. I used two different bottles, in case the one was a bad batch, and still got the same result. Definitely would not recommend this spray. I would go for Pyranha's natural fly spray next time I need something natural.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice natural alternative Equisect Fly Repellent is a nice alternative to other chemical sprays. It does seem to repel the bugs longer than other sprays without the patented ingredient. The horseflies in our area have been relentless this year and this repellent helps, although you need to reapply it frequently if working at prime bug time during the day.
    Date published: 2011-07-04
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Safe Product Ingredients are natural and safe. Provides decent protection, as good or better than many products. Not the best for heavy fly days, but I'm not afraid to have overspray drift onto my own skin.
    Date published: 2011-06-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy Horse I really like this fly spray because it doesn't have the strong chemicals and their smells like some of its competitors. My horse has sensative skin and it doesn't seem to bother him; works well to keep him happy and fly free.
    Date published: 2011-06-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fly Spray Ever!!! I purchased this fly spray for the first time this May. With all the insects that new england brings this fly spray repels them all. My horse is out for about 7 hours a day, while the other horses are being pestered by the bugs, my horse hasnt had any bites and doesnt get stressed out. I also love how it doesnt have any harsh chemicals or a strong smell I reccomend this product to everyone!
