I get a small bottle of concentrated permethrin at tractor supply for 7.99. Mix per directions add some avon skin so soft bath oil and a couple drops of citronella oil. Sometimes I add a touch of apple cider vinegar but the horses and the dogs don't seem to like the smell. 2 bottles of the permethrin will make enough fly spray to last 3 horses all the warm weather here.
