    UltraShield EX Fly Spray is rated 4.6594 out of 5 by 229.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Biting Flies - stay away! The product works well enough. It is intended to be efficaeous with repeated uses up to 17 days. However I have found that I have needed to use the product several times a week. It is immediately effective and I do find that my horse is less bothered by the flies than his other paddock buddies.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kills on contact It is good, but does not last as long as advertized. Still better than other sprays I have used over the years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra Shield XL Fly Spray I bought this almost a month ago and have used it for a several years now seems to last the longest on our horse and the citronella scent is not too over powering. Would highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Works! I have used Ultrashield EX for approx. 5 years and believe it to be the best long-lasting sweatproof insect repellent. It also does a good job of repelling ticks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Switched from Endure to Ultrashield about a month ago and have really noticed the difference in my Icelandic mare's issues with gnats and sweet itch. It's a never ending battle!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST FLY SPRAY OUT THERE I have used LOTS of different fly sprays trying to find the one that ACTUALLY works. This is the best one on the market. It doesn't leave any oily residue on the horse and it lasts. Living in hot humid and wet climate in Florida, to be able to find something that actually works is amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it It's the best fly and bug spray for my two horses. I live in Florida where the mosquitoes are terrible at night. This spray keeps them away. It also works great when we trail ride too. It has a pleasant citronella fragrance. And it works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best protection you can get I live in Western Colorado. While my home place is singularly un-buggy, if I go up into the mountains the mosquitos and horse flies can be pretty bad. For the last ten years or so I have been using Absorbine Ultra Shield to protect the horses and have found it superior to any other product I have tried. Yes, it's more expensive than some other products, but the difference in protection is worth the difference in price. Since I drive my horses and can't just reach forward or back in the saddle to swat or shoo a bug, superior protection is a must both for the comfort of the horses and for my safety.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent fly soray One of the few fly sprays that actually lasts for a while. Put it on while tacking up and there are no flies bothering us the whole ride!
    Date published: 2014-08-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best I've tried It's a tough fly season in So Cal with all the heat and hot dry winter we had. This is the first thing I've tried that lasts all day. Unless your horse sweats it off, it will offer relief for many hours!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ultra Sheild EX, good product, good design. Product works well, not greasy, lasts but washes off easy (my own hands and skin). Bottle is strong, doesn't leak, trigger also is quiet and smooth acting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from By far the best performing spray in the barn! I bought this after I noticed that the only horse in the barn without fly welts was sporting better than the other brands I had tried.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well My horse hates flies, and will throw a fit to stomp on them. This works pretty well and seems to keep him happy.
    Date published: 2014-07-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best fly spray I've tried I have been using this fly spray for 2+ years. This fly spray does a good job of repelling ticks as well as flies. Other owners at the barn have used different fly sprays and while it keeps the flies off, my horse is the only one who doesn't get a ton of ticks on him. I would recommend getting this product if you are in an area with ticks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells good! I bought this last week. My barn usually uses different fly sprays. It seems to keep the bugs off, when I'm grazing my horse he doesn't seem to swoosh his tail so much or shake his head. Also it smells great, people always comment on the nice smell. The spray setting is perfect! Instead of just jetting out of the bottle it actually mists over the area and you can't see wet spots from spraying!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've used Great product! Long lasting & really does the job. Does not leave a greasy residue on her coat & even has UV protection (which is really great on a bay mare here in sunny South Carolina).
    Date published: 2014-07-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than any other fly spray I have tried This spray isn't cheap, but I find fewer ticks on my horse than the other horses in the same field.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kills and repels flies I've been using this for about a month. The second I spray it on my horse the flies drop off and don't come back. I'm don't think it really repels flies for 17 days, but definitely effective for a few!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does it all (almost), beautifully! I've been using UltraShield for at least 8 years. It keeps almost all flying insects away, and leaves my horse's coat soft, with no irritation, or chemical smell. The only pests that ignore it are the huge, horseflies (we call them, "bombers) that come out in late July/early August. For them, nothing works but Pyranha. Otherwise, this is my fly spray of choice. I spray it all over his body, and for his face, spray my hand and just wipe it on his jowls, face and ears.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fly Free Definitely works, may not last as long as they claim but does last several days. Best fly spray I have used in a while.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works The only one that seems to stop ticks as well as biting insects.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fly spray Although this spray is more expensive than some of the concentrates that you have to mix, it works much better and is cheaper since you don't have to apply every day. I'm not saying there won't be any bugs on your horse, but it will help keep most of them away. I had a big problem with very large horse flies and this helped give my horses some relief. I'm in South Louisiana so we've got bugs. My horses are out in a pasture 24/7. Overall, I would highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is the best! Have used another product purchased at the local store and it didn't work very well. Although this product costs more, it lasts much long, is completely effective and gives my horse a silky coat

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
