Any Good Fly Sprays??? Scars??

I have a paint mare who just attracts flys. I don't know why. It is terrible! They cling to her! I have two thoroughbreds and the flys are not as bad with them. I use dumor fly spray from tractor supply. It works on the thoroughbreds but not with the paint. Today this lady sprayed we with a fly spray it was white and light green with a horse on it. I'm pretty sure the horse what in the middle of it but I couldn't really tell. It really seemed to work. I don't really like the lady and she hates me so I really don't plan on talking to her again. If you guys know this fly spray or any kind of fly spray that might work I would appreciate it. She also has a lot of bite marks on her. I might have to separate her from the others. Do you know of anything I can use for like the scars? She has missing patches of hair. I really feel bad!

I use a brand called Espree(I think that's the correct spelling) it seems to work well. When my horse has missing hair patches, I put some swat on it and it heals up soon enough.

I have a horse who is allergic to flies. I but the Dumor as well. And then I add and extra ounce of permethrin amd and ounce of Repel x. Works Amazing!

But a green bottle.... kinda sounds like the new ultra shield that is all natiral

I used a mixture of vinegar and water before and it worked wonders for the horses! Kept alot of the horseflies away. As for the bite marks, I would say Swat as well.

My paint seems to attract flies too. I used Pyranha fly spray while I was in Louisiana, it worked great. It's in a yellow bottle. Now I'm in Florida and I use Tri-Tec, in a gray bottle. I would highly recommend either of them, they even help with the deer flies.

Vaseline works great on the bald areas. Flies and mosquitoes don't like it. When the flies are that bad I wipe them down with chain saw chain oil Problem is it's red but at least it offers protection. I wipe just the knees down. Try and keep the horses inside during the day and make the barn/shelter as dark as possible. The flies won't go in.
