!!!Ahhhh, Horse-Eating Horse Flies!!!
Someone please tell me what is a good repellant for horse flies!!!
They are eating the crud out of my poor mares.
When it started getting warm, one was getting horrid welts from the mosquitos, so I have been using Bronco with Citronella - which works awesome for that. NOW these blood sucking monsters are terrorizing them every evening and the fly spray doesn't phase them :(
I have googled and I can't find a specific product that is guaranteed to help. I was told teatree oil mixed in would help, but I want a real product, not a home remedy.
I have used Bug-Off (Purple Bottle) in the past for mosquitos and ticks (we don't seem to have a tick problem anymore :S) but stupid Tractor Supply is always out of it when I go, or they quit carrying it. Though, they always seem to be out of everything I need when I go.
Please help :(
Added: They are also crawling all over my older mares udder and hanging out in there. I spray them off every evening to get the sweat off of them, but these flies are seriously not bothered by anything.
Is it safe to put swat on an udder?
Some days it's not worth chewing through the straps.
