The Best Fly Spray

So I was going to make a poll for this but thought there was too many different kinds. What is your favorite fly spray that you think works the best? Why do you like it? And about how much do you pay for it?

I really like Farnam's Bronco and I pay about $8-$9 a spray bottle. It has a really nice smell to it and I don't have to reapply it a lot.

I love endure. I'm not sure what we pay for it, but it works nicely and smells really good.

UltraShield EX works the best for me.

The spray that I like to use is Bronco. It costs a little more, but you can use a lot less and actually watch the flies turn around and go away which is proof it works really well.

Whatever works and doesn't cost an arm and a leg!

We have so many people at our barn who use different kinds of fly sprays the flies have gotten immune to most of the popular brands out there. Bronco has the same effect as water at our place. Pyrahna works decently, as does Absorbine Ultrashield (my personal fave, unfortunately is one of the most expensive kinds).

My frugal husband came home with a gallon jug of this stuff called Dy-Fly. He got it on the cattle side of the feed store. Its for all livestock including horses. It smell really bad and your suppose to just do a light mist being sure its just on the outer hair not down to the skin so you know it has to be nasty stuff. It works Our main problem lately has been mosquitoes and those big nasty horse flys.
