Fly Spray- what is the best, not just the cheapest.

I am buying some fly spray online.... I have used different brands but would like something that lasts a day at least, since on the days I work, I am unable to get out to my horse and re-spray him. Any ideas??

My personal favorite is Absorbine. Seems to last a few days before needing to be reapplied. Orange bottle is supposedly sweat proof. I like the black bottle stuff better.

I like the Pyranha Wipe N' Spray (in the yellow bottle). I haven't tried every fly spray out there, but of the ones I've tried, this one is the best. - Image Detail

I'd like to know the answer to this question, too! Specifically something that has an effect on deer flies. Nasty buggers.

I use Mosquito Halt. It's in a black bottle. We don't have any really super nasty flies out here, (AZ) so I don't know how it'd do on them, but we do have super nasty, huge, relentless mosquitos and it keeps them AND flies away for an entire day if it's not rinsed off.

I use Tri-Tec 14, but has someone found anything that works better? I've tried others, but this is what I've found works best.

My favourite is Absorbine Ultrashield. It lasts for 2 to 3 days and it seems to works on everything - even those relentless horse flies. There are a couple downsides though. It's pretty concentrated, so it's not the most pure, natural thing you can put on your horse, and it's pretty expensive.

Tried Absorbine RED last year for the first time when the farrier came out. She likes to do the horse out in the open. Flies were bad but a light spraying of this and the horses stood quietly. I was impressed. Best I've seen so far and I've tried a bunch.

This is a post I am interested in as well..... In reading the responses, it occurs to me that geography is a factor. I live in NC, where flies are varied and terrible, and some people may be responding from places where flies are not as much of an issue.....but they still see them that way! So, maybe stating where you are located might be helpful.

We had a Pyranha fly spray system in our old barn (we have moved and will install it when we get our new barn built) and it was all one could ever dream of in terms of fly control. Adjustible, easy to fill, etc.

I tried all I could find and this one worked the best for me: Whup-A-Bug Horse Fly Spray - Fly Spray .
