As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

SWAT Clear formula protects wounds, open sores, scratches and abrasions from dirt and disease-carrying flies. Botanically derived pyrethrin formula repels house flies, stable flies, face flies and horn flies, killing them on contact. SWAT Clear is ideal for use on the ears and other facial areas.

    SWAT Clear is rated 4.8421 out of 5 by 114.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Great product, great results. Detered the gnats/flies/etc from biting my horses jaw causing a large swelling and open bug bites. This product stopped them from biting and has allowed his wounds to heal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for ears My little mare has a chronic problem with small gnats biting the inside of her ears. Her itchy ears drive her crazy. I put a thin coat on the inside of her ears once a week. Works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps wounds fly free I usually use the original(pink) but went to the clear for use on the face. Works great around eyes for long lasting fly control

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SWAT is great in the summertime! Helps so much with all the summertime bugs! Use a lot of it this time of year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well This works! I'd swear the insects know its strength. They leave the area where it's applied and often fly completely away from the horses. I always have it on hand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! While I prefer the pink (because you can get a better idea of when it's worn off) SWAT is hands down the best thing ever. I have a mare that's allergic to everything and super sensitive to bugs and this stuff is amazing for her belly/ears/face and keeps her happier. I also used this on my geldings ears and sheath area when he was alive. Love this product, its worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love this stuff for extra bug protection. My horse gets very spooky when I use a fly mask with her, so I smear this stuff all over her face and inside her ears to keep the biting flies and gnats away. It's also great for using on the chest and up under the belly. This is a staple in my grooming box! One jar goes a long way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SWAT - Fast results! I like SWAT. It is great for keeping flying pests from ears, eyes, sores, bellies, etc. I carry a jar in my trail bag for times when we run into problems we weren't expecting, heavy bug coverage, scrapes, etc. Have even used it on my horse's nose if we have come across a smell she doesn't like.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! Such a great product to keep flies away and off of sensitive areas. My mare has always had a problem with gnats around her udder area. Swat has definitely made a difference and she is much more comfortable. I like that it lasts too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! Swat continues to be the best product for keeping flies away from anything you put it on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Job! I use SWAT CLEAR on both my boy's face and sheath area. I gently apply it around their eyes and slather it on their sheath area. It does an excellent job preventing deer fly and horse fly bites in the sheath area and helps tremendously to keep face flies out of their eyes. I always keep a jar handy in my brush box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff ... but not PINK. I really depend on SWAT for keeping fly congregations off my horses' bellies. I've always used the "pink" kind and liked it because it was easy to see when it needed to be reapplied (and, also, to see what other body parts it had migrated to). But pink wasn't on offer so I bought the clear and it works just fine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another useful product for fly wars My mare has severe fly allergies and this works well for her. Helps to keep the flies off the spots she can't reach with her tail! So happy they make it in clear now!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT WORKS !!! Flies have been really bad every where this year. None of the sprays have been working long enough to provide dawn to dusk protection. And even when sprayed good in the morning you would go out in the afternoon to find the deer flies had turned their legs into a bloody raw mess in a few short hours. So I ran Swat stripes on all lower legs and 3" under their eyes. All the fly strike areas healed up quick and I put it on their Swat stripes every 2 - 3 days. Swat has been a staple around this ranch for 30+ years. It's my go to product for cuts, scrapes, abrasions etc.. because it works and it works fast. We also found a Paranha spray that works and I put everyone on Bugzzo feed thru fly repellant made with garlic and vinegar. Even though I put them on Bugzzo late in the season after 1 month I could tell the difference and it does work. We tried another feed through garlic/vinegar product at my friends house so we had 2 control groups far apart. And by far the Bugzzo worked the best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for discouraging flies around wound My horse is recuperating from a severe leg wound. I use SWAT around the perimeter of the wound to discourage flies. I also use it around her face and ears for the same effect. I prefer the clear to the pink because it is more subtle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME stuff This stuff is great. Flies and gnats were completely eating up my horse's ears. After a week of using this stuff, all the blood and crust was gone and he was healing so nicely. Even though I use quite a bit of it inside his ears, the jar is lasting an amazingly long time. Before using SWAT, I hadn't found anything to keep his ears bug-free. I won't ever be without this stuff in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for protecting ears from gnats I use Swat mostly on the insides of my horse's ears to prevent gnats from biting. I apply it liberally once a week, and it really works well.Swat is also very effective to prevent flies from irritating surface wounds and nicks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love this product for protecting my horse's ears from the little black flies in the summer, and also for his sheath area. It's great for these sensitive areas and I don't have to worry about it burning or irritating any existing insect bites. It lasts for several days, so I don't need to worry about applying it every day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice anti fly and gnat product I apply a little of Swat to the inside of my horse's ears after wiping them clean with alcohol and a rag. Works great for horses that get the gnat and fly gunk on the under side of the face too. Just a thin layer is enough to keep your horse gnat free. Summer must have!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps those Flies AWAY! I've used SWAT for over 15 years. I make a point to use it all summer on those areas that need a little more than fly spray can afford them (around eyes, ears, muzzle). I like the clear more than the older pink version for obvious reasons, but if you have a horse that has fly allergies, the pink is a good alternative so you know when to re-apply. It's great for trails or shows when you don't need your horse to be constantly tossing its head to get those pesky flies off. Definitely recommend this product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the Job Done! I've been using Swat for years, and it has always been my go-to goo for any itchy, scratchy, bloody, spot that needed to keep the flies off.I'm not sure if there is a difference, but I definitely would not recommend Pink. It isn't that it's hard to get off, but for the simple reason that it looks a little funny, and it can get all over. It's easy to remove with some soap and water--still, I recommend clear.It keeps the bugs off well, my only con is that it gets dirt locked in and can create like, a dirty patch that you really have to scrub off. While that can be annoying with a white and black horse like mine, if it keeps the bugs off, I'm happy.Price is also great here. Much cheaper than local tack stores charging about 11-16 bucks for it here.
