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

    Mosquito Halt is rated 4.6617 out of 5 by 133.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well on mosquitos and flies My go-to flyspray, it works for both mosquitos and flies and lasts for at least half a day. None of the other formulas last longer than that in my experience. Doesn't make coats fade in the sun, as I've experienced with some other sprays, including more expensive ones. I have a few Mosquito Halt spraybottles that have been going strong for years, now I just pick up the big refill which lasts me all fly season.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to replace spray bottles! This sale was cheaper than buying the gallon. Spray bottles need to be replaced occasionally. This makes it easier, and cost saving! Thank you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I just bought this for my horse. I can't wait to use this when the mosquito's get bad. I only use it when they get bad and to make the bugs go away. I also use the endure bug spray when I'm not using the mosguito halt. It really keeps the bugs off her. I love that it lasts for up to 2 weeks without spraying it on her all the time. I will be buying theses two great products again when I run out. And it's cheaper buying it through smartpak than going to store to get it. And free shipping to the farm is really great to use too. I get all my stuff from smartpak for my horse. She and I are both very very happy!!! U will be too!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing special The mosquitoes here in TX are the worst I've ever experienced. I was desperately hoping this would work better than my other 3 sprays that I've been rotating through. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work any better or last any longer. Why can't there be a mosquito spray for horses that works as well as Off does for people!? I know it stinks, but man, the mosquitoes don't come within 10 feet of me!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mosquito Halt works I've been using Mosquito Halt for three "fly seasons" now. Because we use Spaulding Labs Fly Preditors, we don't have a fly issue at my stable, but we still have mosquitos and gnats, and M.H. appears to work very well for repelling the bloodsucking insects. I use the product for my 33 horse boarding and lesson stable. Good product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fly and mosquito spray! This is a great product and I have been using it since it was first introduced years ago. Here in the mosquito-infested South, I rely on this product daily to HELP protect my horses from disease-spreading mosquitoes. As an equine veterinarian, I also recommend this product by name to clients to HELP protect their own horses. It's a good one! (Be sure to have your horses examined and vaccinated by your veterinarian, though!!)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Fly/mosquito Repellant This is the only fly spray I've tried that works on all kinds of insects and lasts. It is the only one I use and my horse is free from bug bite welts.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actually works Keeps the bugs at bay long after product has dried, unlike a lot of fly sprays that only work for 5 or so minutes. Has a strong odor when first applied, but within minutes mellows out to a very pleasant scent. We live near a swamp, and after trying many different sprays over the years, this is the only stuff I use now.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from There is no perfect fly spray but ... While all of us know that the perfect fly spray does not exist - Mosquito Halt comes pretty close. My OTTB is sensitive to bug bites and this seems to help him the most. Now that it is becoming warmer, overnight turnout will occur, and I like having the assurance of a mosquito repellent as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, but doesn't last against texas Mosquitos I've tried so many products to help my horse against the terrible Mosquitos we get in the marshlands of coastal texas, and this one by far has been the best. However, I find that it only really works for the first 20-30 mins, when the smell is still very strong, then my horse is covered in Mosquitos again. We really get awful Mosquitos here, and this is the first product that has really done much to hold them off, even for a short while. I had tried a citronella neck collar too, with no luck at all, but when I spray the neck collar with mosquito halt - jackpot! It keeps my horse mosquito free for almost a full day!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average Performance I expected more than average performance based on the majority of positive reviews. My experience with the product is that flies seem to land right back on the horse not long after spraying. I sprayed my horse during grooming, after saddling up and two times during the ride in the ring. I know that fly sprays are not 100% effective as advertised, but I will not repurchase as I found myself reapplying this product more frequently then with the other ones that I have used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works I purchased it based upon review by Horse Journal. It works on flies and gnats.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff This is the only spray that I've tried (and I've tried many) that will keep flies and biting insects off the horses. The downside of it is that is only works for a few hours and then needs reapplied and it is expensive. But at least it does work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Thing to Keep Ticks Off! I have been using this product twice a week from March thru November in New England for 4 years, and none of my 3 horses have had Lyme since (they did previously). I rarely find a tick on them. Many in my area find dozens of ticks on their horses every week. I am exceptionally pleased with the product. It even repels horse flies!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well No fly spray really does an outstanding job, but this one is pretty good. I bought it as a fly spray, not a mosquito spray, and it works well to repell and hopefully kill the flies. Your best bet is always a good manure disposal plan, however. Unfortunately, our barn does not have one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stops Mosquitos + I find this spray to be the most effective one I use. With WNV rampant in Texas, this has been a life saver for us. I living by a lake as well, this works! I think it kills just about every other annoying insect my horses encounter, too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fly spray This the only fly spray I've found that actually works. With the mild winter last year our fly population was awful this spring, summer and fall. I won't say it provides protection for 2 weeks but it does provide instant relief which lasts for several hours. Any other products I've used, flies reappeared and were biting within minutes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked better than other fly sprays This summer, the mosquitoes were a problem for my horse. The usual fly sprays were just not getting the job done and giving him relief from mosquito bites. After reading reviews, I decided to give the Mosquito Halt a try. It definitely did help to repel the bugs initially and gave him more relief but didn't last as long as the product's labeling stated. Still, I'd recommend it, as it worked better than most other insect repellants. The fragrance isn't too bad but be careful to stand clear of the spray vapor when using the product. It is strong!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Before we moved to SC, we had a much bigger problem with bugs. Having experimented with many brands of fly spray, this one seemed to work well with flies and mosquitos about the best. Here there is more of a gnat problem. Honestly, most brands' claims to duration of effectiveness is laughable; our experience is that none work as long as advertised. We apply before a ride, or the farrier, or as needed. This spray does well overall in comparison to others, so we use it the most. The gallon refill size is a super value; Smartpak has the best price and with the free shipping wins hands down!
