And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Equi-Spot Fly Control is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 206.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tick preventative This will repel and kill ticks for about two weeks but no longer. It, however, is not the best fly repellent.
    Date published: 2017-08-08
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked ok but horse allergic This product did actually seem to work well. Unfortunately my horse was allergic to it. He had large welts at each application spot. My friend uses it on her horse and it works great.
    Date published: 2017-08-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Substantial Relief My boy hates flies, and is unfortunately a fly magnet. This significantly reduces the number of flies on him, including the dastardly biting flies which always make a ride interesting in ways neither of us necessarily appreciates. He's also stomping his feet far less frequently, which is much better for his not-perfect hooves. He's a large chap so we typically use two vials for each application, but it's well worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps ease the bug issue I've used this product off and on for a few years and this year I found myself with a new horse who has major bug sensitivity. I'm never going another bug season without it. It doesn't work miracles but it certainly helps in between fly spray and I've noticed a big difference in the amount of flies and mosquitoes buzzing around her.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for everyday protection My horse has a run out connected to his stall. It's great for protection when I can't spray him every time he goes outside.
    Date published: 2017-07-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No Ticks! I successfully use this as one layer of protection on my Appy/Draft gelding (in addition to Bug-Off and Pyrahna ). He is turned out 24/7 with a run-in and we are avid trailriders. Ticks and their diseases are a big problem in our area and when I use this as directed I do not find ANY ticks on him and this is my 2nd year of using it during "tick season". I use a LOT LESS flyspray during the same time period and he is much more comfortable in general. So far, he is staying healthy, so it is worth the price.
    Date published: 2017-07-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok I bought this is a month ago and I think that I like this product. I haven't used it long enough though.
    Date published: 2017-07-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from helps combat ticks Works well to protect horses from ticks. No deterrent effect on flies in my opinion. I have asked the company to improve packaging to prevent waste of product. For large horses I use 1 and 1/2 containers every two weeks. I have not found an attached tick since I have been using this for 6 years.
    Date published: 2017-06-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tick-free horse It took a couple of applications to work fully as a repellent, but after the first application the ticks I pulled off my horse were dead or dying, and now that it's been 4-5 applications she has been tick-free for over a month. The applicator isn't very easy to use relative to how to measure how much product is coming out, but it gets the job done
    Date published: 2017-06-26
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Severely blistered my horse's front legs! A friend at my barn bought 3, used 2 about 3 weeks apart on her horse with no reaction so I used it on Cort. He had welts all over his body where I dotted it and at 7 spots on his body he was raw from this product. In addition his front legs had raw weeping sores 48 hours after the product was applied. Used Vetericyn and Wonder Dust for about a week before all areas were on the mend. Will not be using this product again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works!!! Works well!! I can only tell by the fact that my hostas not have bugs on him and he doesn't seem irritated by them
    Date published: 2017-06-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works Since we used EquiSpot on our five horses we've seen a reduction in flies and no more ticks.
    Date published: 2017-06-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful product. My horse seems to be the only one out a farm of 15 attracting ticks! This has helped keep them away. You just have to remember to do every 14 days.
    Date published: 2017-06-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works! Flies are a problem most of the year in my area so I figured it wouldn't hurt to try this. I noticed a dramatic difference in an hour! My horse went from a dozen flies to none, and it really lasts about 12-14 days.
    Date published: 2017-06-05
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too many reactions Belgian reacted immediately, tried to scratch everywhere treated for about an hour, then settled. Arabian and Pony did fine with test spots, so treated the entire horse the next day. Pony did fine. The Arabian had sizable welts where treated the next day. Disinclined to repurchase, but at a loss as to what else to try for the terrible ticks this year!
    Date published: 2017-05-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This works!! EquiSpot is the only product I use for my horses to repel ticks. The tick is still able to bite them, but is quickly killed. I have had issues with Lyme in the past, but not since using this product consitanly.
    Date published: 2017-05-29
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from works, but horses hate it I've used this off and on for a couple of summers, and while it definitely helps keep ticks off my horses, they absolutely hate it when I put it on. One of my mares will literally trot off when she sees me coming with it, as soon as she hears the 'snap' of the capsule or smells it. My gelding stands quietly as I apply it, but once it starts to soak in on his legs, he proceeds to chew intensely at his skin. I can only surmise that it is irritating to them. I've given up on it and have gone back to rubbing repellent lotion on their bellies and wiping spray on their legs and bodies.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tick control I have been using Equi-spot Fly Control for many years now. Every two weeks (or 2 & 1/2 weeks) I apply this product to my three mares and it is very effective against ticks and also helps to repel annoying insects like May flies or black flies. Since my mares spend 4-6 hours a day on pasture it is very important that we have a bug repellent that actually works! I recommend Equi-spot for all horses from March until October in New England.
    Date published: 2017-05-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product My fields are loaded with ticks, I had to remove numerous ticks from the horses on a daily basis. We have had Lyme disease and Ehrlichia on the horses. Since starting the equispot, I find an occasional tick, but the horses are almost tick free. I highly recommend this product
    Date published: 2017-05-25
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from We had no luck I bought this thinking I would save on fly spray, and it would help my blind horse, being that she is afraid of sprays. This did nothing for my gelding against biting flies. It was like I never used it. My blind mare was afraid of it, because she is sensitive to scents. Will have to keep looking for something that will work.
    Date published: 2017-05-19

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works! This was recommended to me by a couple other boarders at my barn. I was finding 3-4 ticks on my horse per day (they started early this year!) and I haven't seen any since I started using Equi-Spot. I use it in addition to OutSmart and have see a great deal fewer of flies and ticks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for Ticks I bought this to fight off ticks during the summer months in ND. My horse was COVERED in them. Those big fat ones full of blood to those who haven't attached yet. I put this on him and literally a day later... he was tick free. And they didn't come back! I will recommend this product for ticks.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Equi-Spot Saw no results until after the second application even when using regular fly spray with it. Even so, the results were relatively minimal, less than impressive.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from no good features very disappointed (has NO effect on the fly's in my area) followed the instructions to the letter.
