Do not wet skin. After application, brush out thoroughly to bring out bright sheen on the coat. Repeat daily or as required. DIRECTIONS FOR SPRAY ON USE: May be applied as fine mist spray to stable area and over and around stabled horses for fast paralysis and kill of flies.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 5 Minute Fly Spray Works for a few minutes, then you have to re-apply. Haven't even used mine 5 times, and it's almost all gone. It was really a waste of money, also makes the horse very greasy and slippery!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from used it before Snow predicted for next few days, so have not yet needed to use the spray. I purchased this spray previously and found it to be effective. Katie, my 24 year old paint, likes it because it is natural and safe for her.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Smells good, not very effective Although I love the natural ingredients in this spray (for my own sake, as much as my horse's), it was not very effective at keeping the bugs away. It left a greasy sheen on my horse's coat that attracted dust and gunk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most effective fly spray! I have been using this fly spray on my pasture-boarded horse all summer. Over the years we have tried many brands of fly spray and this is the only one I'll purchase now. It definitely works. I apply it every day during fly season. I also feel good about coating my horse in the ingredients in this fly spray, especially compared to other brands. I have had some issues with leakage of the spray bottle during shipping. Instead of reordering the spray bottle I get the refill bottle and have had no leaks with that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well for a natural product! This spray seems to work well, though it doesn't protect against ticks, so if my horse is going out in the long grass I spray his underside with Endure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Fly Spray! This fly spray does a great job. One of my horses had sensitive skin and this was really gentle. It smells good and keeps the flys off all day.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to Work I have used a lot of fly sprays that do not work. This one seems to do a pretty good job and isn't so toxic that it leaves me with a headache. I think the citronella is what makes it effective and give it a non-abrasive smell.
    Date published: 2013-12-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, prefer its more natural base Try to stay away from chemical products as much as possible - use this throughout the season, and although it can leave a touch of oily residue, it does the job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff! I have to be careful with what I use on my horses and some products are safe to use but don't last long. This works well and lasts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural Fly Spray I love this product. I have three horses and one has very sensitive skin. Other fly sprays make his skin break out, this one does not and it is a natural as it can be. My other two horses love it also. You can use a wash cloth and spray the product on it and then wipe around the horse's face without any problem. Horses love the smell and heave a big sigh of relief. It is also great on the mane and tail, an unexpected conditioner so you get two things for the price of one. I buy a larger container because I use this all summer long.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Fly spray for Summer Eczema/Sweet Itch I bought this fly spray as a substitute for one that had been discontinued. I use it twice a day, dawn and some time before dusk. I am also using another product from Iceland to help with any breakouts. Also have added some supplements to help with this condition.Last 2 years he was oozy, crusty and not happy. I had to use steroids. This year, I have managed to keep any outbreaks to a minimum, and can manage them without putting him on steroids.Bottom line, my icy seems to be having a MUCH more comfortable fly season. This spray works real well for his condition.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the Job I like this insect spray, as it seems to keep the flys from landing on the horse and it lasts longer than most sprays. I used it at a horse show in July, sprayed my horse with it in his stall so the spray would also land on the shavings. It did a good job of keeping the flys away, but I did keep the stall picked of manure, which helps. A little pricey, but worth the money. Smells nice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from fly spray that conditions This fly spray is good for our arid and sometimes very humid conditions. It works well for the aggressive mosquitoes as well as the blood sucking flys. It is gentle on the horses skin and does not burn their coats. You do have to put it on a couple times a day when flys are real bad. It does not make me sick as some of the other flly sprays do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A more natural approach to FLY SPRAY. So, I had given up on the search for a fly spray that works on all of the nasty insects we have here in NC....I have tried MANY! I decided to go more natural and purchased a bottle of Flysect. I was pleasantly surprised! No, it didn't get rid of the bugs altogether, but it worked as good or better than some of the more expensive fly sprays that are comprised of strong man-made chemicals that I have tried. And it smells great!
    Date published: 2012-09-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fly spray! I recently decided to try this product. It is probably one of the best fly sprays I've ever used. I try to always use natural, botanically based fly sprays but most only last a few minutes. This one lasts much longer. It is slightly greasy because of the lanolin but well worth it for my horses comfort.
    Date published: 2012-07-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fly spray ever! This is the best fly spray i have ever purchased it keeps away the flies and bugs and gives my gelding a nice shiny coat. It also has a very nice citronella scent. When i ordered it i used the barn saver shipping it shipped right to my barn, free shipping! The only downside it ships with other peoples thing so it got a little bit mixed up.
    Date published: 2012-07-09
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lasts and smells great! This is my favorite fly spray! Flys have been really terrible this year which has caused me to go through 3 different styles/brands of spray, I am going to go back to this one due to its lasting power. The natural oils in the product cause it to work for longer than the synthetic brands so if I can't get out to the barn everyday, I don't feel guilty. Because it is all natural I don't worry about spraying it on my hands and rubbing it on his face. The smell is also good and the nice shine it brings to my horse's coat will keep this company getting my business

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff I love this fly spray! It is a little bit greasy, so always apply BEFORE tacking up! But it has a very nice citronella scent, and definitely keeps the bugs away. I've also noticed that it keeps my horses' hooves very shiny, which is a nice side effect! Overall I've used many different types of fly spray, and this is definitely my favorite.
    Date published: 2011-08-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps flies away I have always preferred flysect. I tried this one because of the citronella. At first I hated how greasy it was, but my horse's groom said it was the only brand that he has seen that really keeps the bugs away in turnout. I think that outweighs the greasiness concern.
