    Mosquito Halt is rated 4.6429 out of 5 by 112.
    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 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fly Spray Works well for all types of biting insects, not just mosquitoes.

    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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product The best product we've found for keeping mosquitos away here in buggy SE WI. Smells great, shines up their coats, and lasts a long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from super for mosquitoes in Florida my Arab is so sensitive to mosquitoes it is hard to find anything that keeps her from suffering. And in Florida with the heat and heavy rains many products wash right off. Mosquito Halt is the best spray on I've ever used for her. It drastically reduces the number of bites, holds up in the rain and sweat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great but odiferous Mosquito Halt is the only thing besides OFF! that gives our DWB gelding peace after the suns starts to set. Out of all 5 of our horses, he is THE mosquito magnet and as soon as the sun goes down, they are all over him - literally making him crazy to the point he will gallop around his turnout until he is dripping with sweat.Deep Woods OFF! might smell better but who can afford to buy all those little cans to use on a 17-hand horse every night during mosquito season? The bonus with Mosquito Halt is it continues to work the next day to repel the flies.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from kept them off! I was pleasantly surprised as I have yet to find a really effective mosquito repellent. We live in a wet area and the mosquito are horrid. I have used the product 5 times thus far and it killed the mosquitos on contact and kept them off the entire 2 hours I was riding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I use it here down in Southeast Texas and it works great to rid my horses of the mosquitos. I also love the smell!!! It seems to last a lot longer on their coats than other fly sprays I have tried. I have reordered the gallon refill and will definitely continue to use it throughout our Spring/Summer.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from stinks and does not work! I sprayed this product on my horse and first of all it smells like old men's aftershave and it makes it impossible to breathe around your horse. Also, after spraying this on my horse we went on a trail ride and what do you know she was COVERED in mosquitos. Not what the product advertises.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps him bite free! My horse gets a quick spray of Mosquito Halt every night to keep the pesky bugs off my horse at night. I would not have him in Florida without it! The nights that I am not at the barn or he is not sprayed he has little bites in the morning! I recommend this to anyone who lives in a wet or tropical environment!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only spray that works in our area Its a little stinky, but by far the best fly spray we have tried. Its the ONLY spray that keeps all the pesky bugs away. No way it lasts 2 weeks - but most sprays I have tried don't last an hour! By far my favorite.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works really well! I bought this product due to the recommendation by Horse Journal, and am in agreement with their findings. It smells really nice, works great on our nasty mosquitos, and is effective against flies as well. I've switched from the roll-on facial stuff to using this as a wipe-on for faces, too. It is less oily than most roll-ons. My horses seem to tolerate it well and the bugs will fly near them but not land. It's almost like an "aura" of buglessness. OK, that isn't a word. I will definitely continue to use it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works but... The product does what it claims, repels mosquitos, flies, and gnats, but it stinks! If you breath in the mist at all you feel like you've just ingested a ton of horrible chemicals. Not sure how this could be any good for your horse either! If you read the instructions it basically says humans shouldn't touch it or breath it. Yikes!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the best fly/mosquito sprays Indeed this is one of the better fly and bug spray products on the market, though that really isn't saying much.I've been using fly spray for 30+ years, and I've yet to find one that works as well as the label says. Mosquito Halt is honestly no different, but it does work perhaps a tad bit better than most others. I have to reapply every day, sometimes twice daily, but it really does instantly knock down flies, gnats, mosquitoes, etc. It may only last a few hours, but for those few hours my horses are fairly bug-free.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from effective This is the only flyspray that works. My boarders try cheaper brands and their horses are stomping flies. My horses nap happily in their stalls not having to fight bugs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps mosquitos away Mosquito Halt is my absolute favorite fly spray. It works the quickest and longest at keeping not just mosquitos, but other pests away as well. I live in Texas where we have long, hot summers. This product outshines its more expensive competitors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mosquito Halt I have used this product this spring and it was a very wet spring in that the mosquito's thrived, It did a wonderful job in keeping them away, I would recommend this spray to everyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective sweat-proof protection This product works well here in the hot, humid, buggy Florida summer. My horse is a great sweater and other water-based sprays do not get the job done. I highly recommend it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't let the name fool you This is by far the best fly spray I have tried! I have 2 TBs (very sensitive to flys). Over the last few years I have tried just about every fly spray out there. I was hesitant to try this one because of the name, I thought it was just for Mosquitos. I gave up every other type of spray and only use this brand. It works great, the smell is kind of strong, and it drives the other barn people nuts but hey it works!
    Date published: 2011-07-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best flyspray on the market I always used that messy oily was the only thing that worked until I tried Misquito Halt at the recommendation of my vet. Wow, it is great. I can even ride in the woods.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hooked on this fly spray I ran out and had to use another brand of fly spray until my reorder arrived, and I could not believe the difference. The horses were much more bothered with the other spray. This stuff really seems to work. My very sensitive horse has been much more enjoyable to ride thanks to Mosquito Halt.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good stuff I have used this a few times - the horses are comfortable for their turn out. No more messing with the garlic, vinegar etc- this stuff works. (Needs to be used immediately before grass time)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works This is the only thing that I've found that actually works for repelling flies. It doesn't smell great and it only lasts for a few hours but it works better than anything else I've found. It is pricey so I've been mixing it with apple cider vinegar and a couple drops of dawn dishwashing detergent to stretch it. The mixture doesn't seem to lessen the effect of the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mosquitos hate it. Great stuff for mosquitos and flies. This is the ony spray I use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fly Spray I've used this product for several years and still love it. At home, horse shows or out on the trail my horses are never bothered by bugs.
    Date published: 2011-06-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as well as anything The higher end fly sprays seem to all work about the same..this has the best scent but I did not think it was better than Bug Block. I use fly predators and traps, primarily. Wished the label stated it worked on deer flies. I will probably go back to Bug Block next order.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Mosquito killer I have swarms of mosquitoes every summer. This has been the only fly spray that repels them effectively.
