Bugs getting to ears :( Opinions on this product?

Today I noticed that the inside of Sonny's ears is raw from bug bits. So I put some SWAT on it and that will hopefully help for a while, but I don't want to continue to put SWAT on it.

What are things I can do to protect his ears from getting bit up?


Would this be safe to leave on him while in a pasture? He wouldn't keep his fly mask on that had ear protectors ....but I can't tell if this is something that would easily stay on. How does this work?

Any other products that I can use to prevent his ears from getting all eaten up?

Oh, just read he wouldnt keep one on, did he have a fly rug or headcollar to attach it to, because if not it may have fallen off when rolling or something? You could get a fly fringe, but that wouldnt be over his ears

no he itched it off on the fence, ripping the underside of his face. So I'm trying to think of ways not to use a fly mask.

Yeah I need something for his ears cause that's the part that's getting eaten up...poor guy :( hehe

They make ear bonnets that you can tie undertheir throughtlatch to help keep it on. I keep meaning to get one. I also just spray some good fly spray in my hand and rub it on, in and around their ears. It seems to help for a bit.

I just swipe some fly spray in the ears. Works great.
