Pyrahna Fly Spray

Has anyone ever used it? Did you like it? Did you or your horses have an allergic reaction from it?

Yesterday I bought the one that has +15 and kills ticks as well. I sprayed the horses with it this morning and the wind changed suddenly so a fine mist got on my hand.......within minutes I noticed a small section near my thumb was getting a little puffy.......then a little more puffy........so when I came inside I washed it for like, 10 minutes and it looks better, although it's still just a tad puffy. It's not painful, it's almost back to normal but it's still not right. And since washing it the puffiness hasn't gotten any worse.

Sooooooo I'm thinkin if this stuff works for the horses I just need to wear gloves or find something else. We were using Tri-Tec but that isn't working as well this year.

Any suggestions?

I am a huge fan of Pyrahna. It works great but you have to spray them almost everyday. But I've noticed that the sparys I use to get that said they'd last up 7 days or so, never did. In fact they didn't last one day. I've used on 3 of my horses and my friend used it her show horses, and neither one of us had any problems with it. Just test on a small area and make sure they don't have a reaction to it. If they do just hose it off real good.

I use Pyranha too. Just bought a new bottle and haven't used it yet. This year. I've gotten it on my skin with no reactions so maybe you have an allergy :(
Last summer it worked great at keeping the big horse flys away. I bought some Broco Gold that has the same ingredience in it, pyrethrins, and it seems to be working well too. I like that the Pyranha has lanolin in it though. I've been alternating with a natural spray Absorbine Green. Its ok, but just doesn't cut it like the more aggresive chemicals.
Does anyone notice that one year a spray works great and the next year not so good? Do you think the flys are adapting?

Well this is good to hear! I know a lot of trainers use it and the Tri-Tec just wasn't cutting it this year.

I have a friend who is a nurse and she and my mom both think that the swelling on my hand is NOT due to the spray. It just didn't seem big enough because the mist got all over my hand, not just that one section I did trim a clydesdale's feet Thursday and Friday of last week (he's a 2 day project! Lol) and that is a lot of work, so the swelling may be due to that and I just strained my hand today somehow......I don't know, I may put just a tad of spray on my other hand tomorrow and see what happens I'll be ready with the sink and some soap for sure!!

I've never heard of it, but maybe I should try. I use Bronco and I'm not sure that it works that great ...

I used to use Bronco and personally I don't like it. You have to reapply it all the time

The Bronco Gold works much better than the regular. Its kinda hard to find though. I think its fairly new.

I use Pyrana and love it. I've tried so many others and just keep going back to Pyrana. It's cheaper than most brands. I also use Vaseline around their eyes...it keeps the flies away from the eye area.

SWAT is good for keeping flies out of cuts and scrapes....
