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'!).

 BugPellent is a natural, solid insect repellent that passively emits vapors which are safe for humans and animals. Very effective at repelling flying and other insects.  Contains only natural essential oils and certified organic waxes, eliminating toxic chemical exposure.  Works continuously for up to 2 months. 

  • Effective at repelling most flies, mosquitoes, ticks, black flies, and gnats.  Reduces spiders in barns, run-in sheds, and other semi-enclosed spaces.
  • Reduces risk of infection and makes the environment more comfortable for humans and horses.
  • Horses are not bothered by pesky flying insects which congregate around aisles and stalls.

Hang BugPellents in the barn or shed.  Easy to refill with the refillable tubes that are sold seperately.

Install BugPellent at least 6' from open doors or windows. Use one tube per 4,000 cubic feet of indoor space. No batteries or electrical connection needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to work! This is the first fly repellent device I've tried, and it seems to work! I went through several different traps and they didn't do anything. My sticky traps ended up getting knocked down and collecting shavings instead of flies....wonder how that happened?! I wasn't sure this repellent would work but I went ahead and tried it. My mare is in a small barn of about 10 ponies that is mostly open. Her stall is at the end of the aisle with a big door at the end and a big window along the back. Even though this really isn't meant to be placed in a horses's individual stall, the location of my mare's stall met the requirements for the entire barn. At first I wasn't sure if it was working or if it was just the fly sprays, leg bands, and spot-on fly treatments I was using....until it ran out. I could immediately tell when the tube was ready to be replaced, so I did, and I could see an immediate difference with the fresh one. My mare is the only one not swatting her tail or rubbing in her's eerily quiet and peaceful (for once!). She stands and sleeps while the ponies stalled by the big door at the other end of the barn are restless. I wasn't so sure the natural ingredients would be effective, but they are, and they smell great too! The only thing I would say is that maybe this isn't effective for the entire barn (about 40 x 60), but it's great for my mare's stall and the immediate vicinity so I'm sticking with it!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great concept, but no reduction of flies... Used in a small patio area where flies tend to seek refuge. Smell was certainly potent enough, but the flies were not deterred at all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Repels Flies & Smells Great Not only did this product reduce the number of flies in my barn it smells great! There are still flies in my barn but there is a noticeable decrease in numbers. This product makes the barn smell so much better than any other fly repellant I have purchased. It's worth a try!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from a natural that works When I first hung this repellant I was a bit disappointed. For the first day it actually seemed to attract flies. They were all over the string that I used to hang the Verugreen. After that it began to work and there is a noticeable difference in the flies. in her stall

    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...
