I would love to use something natural. And I've had decent results with Nature's Defense. But when the bugs REALLY get bad the poisons are the only ones that seem to work.
Unless speaking of Deo-Lotion.... Just say'n

I used to use Endure so I know how well it works. If I didn't use Deo-Lotion I would go back to Endure. But that stuff does work and it works incredibly well. Of course no fly sprays are perfect, but IMO it's the best one out there.

I just bough "wipe " I believe it's called by pharm something ( oh I'm no helpful ) it was $40 but you wipe it on and can dilute it a bit with water and keep the towel in a container so all the spray stays absorbed. I LOVE IT !! At the last show and at home I never have to re apply and you can actually see like a "force field" around my horse . We have reg. flys , nasty big green ones and nasty big black ones and nasty wasps. I had a very hard time justifying spending that much but a normal spray is about $26 and you spray it and half it blows away, I bought this a little over a week ago and with riding during the week and shows I would have usually gone threw 1/2 a bottle of reg stuff at least. I havnt used more than an oz.

It's a chemical spray but I would highly highly recommend it!! Spend the money on it because it lasts way longer and works. And I was a believer all fly spray is just bogus

I really like Absorbine Ultra Shield EX fly spray. It seems to work the best out of all the fly sprays that I have tried. I use it during the summer once the huge biting horseflies and deerflies are out and the flies are at their most bothersome.

I use Farnam Bronco fly spray at the very beginning of the fly season in the spring, and also getting near the end of fly season in the early fall, it works well enough at those times of the year when the horseflies and deerflies aren't out and the flies aren't too bothersome. It works to keep the smaller biting flies, blackflies, gnats and mosquitoes from biting my horses.

Has anyone tried Equi-Spot? You apply it every 2 weeks.

Ugh.....I have been using a home made one of Avon Skin So Soft, vinegar, and Citronella oil. I have to mix it stronger than what the recipe calls for and it works ok but I am not saving much money over buying Repel x. I just ordered Pyranha 1-10 px concentrate. We will see if it is better than Repel x. The cost is about the same but the ingredients differ.
