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?
