    We use the bright yellow ones that have the sicky stuff on them! I just put it on the floor of the stall once I'm done mucking to help with the flys.

    I tried lots of different ones (store and home-made). So far only this worked for me: Whup-A-Bug Horse Fly Spray - Fly Spray

    I've used both the feed thru bug stuff (bug check) and fly sprays (tri-tec 13 - I guess they have a new tri tec 14 now...) with good results. The fly traps are good too but like someone mentioned man do they smell awful! We've been discussing using the fly predators this year...

    This is the first year I'm getting fly predators, so I hope they work as well as everyone says.

    Vida, where did you get that trap? I want to get several that I can just throw away, instead of the horror of having to clean them of millions of dead, disgusting flies.

    I like to use RepelX on the horses, but I don't dilute it. I wipe it on them with a regular household sponge I buy for just that purpose. If it won't burn me full strength, it won't burn them.

    Two of my horses are allergic to flys. So I have to stay on top of fly care. I put apple cider vinegar in their feed, and I use a fly spray called bar none (it is very cheap... but works better than any fly spray I have ever tried.)

    The Whup-A-Bug spray that kitten posted works awesome! The best of any fly spray I've used. Endure is next in line to that.

    I put fly masks on my horses and spray them down. Keeps the flies off pretty good.

    SR, I think I saw something at TSC that you stick in old milk jugs to trap the flies. I think I'm going to have to try it out or rig something like it up on my own.

    Guess I should start hanging on to my old milk jugs!
