Question Equi-spot Does it keep ticks off horses*** need input please***

Iam looking for something that works to keep the ticks off my horses. In just the last few days iv found eight to ten deer ticks on my horses. Want to avoid having sick horses again this summer had a bad case of lyme dease last summer. Iam now worried iam going to have sick horses again some of the ticks I found were on over twenty four hours. I have been spraying them but that isnt keeping the ticks off so need something that will at this rate iam going to have another case of lyme dease.I live in a area that is a hot spot for lyme dease there were hundreds of cases last year and it already starting up again this year.

Yes, it works, or at least I have not found a tick on my horse when using it. You have to apply it every two weeks, more often if it's really rainy. At $5 a tube, it's waaaay cheaper than the $800 or so needed to treat Lyme disease. Make sure to do the topline from pole to tail, the back of all 4 legs, a little under the chin and between the ears.

Myboypuck thanks I will get some to try I sure can't afford to treat lyme dease again spent more then 800 last year on treating lyme. The one horse relasped twice almost had to put him down he was that bad.

I hear ya. Spent $800 on Puck last year. I think he recovered fully, won't know until there is or isn't a relapse. This year I was using that stuff as soon as the snow melted. I check him everyday I see him for ticks. Apparently the tick can be on there a good 24 hours before infecting the horse, so there's always some time even if you find one on there.

Myboypuck from my understanding stress can bring on a relapse of the lyme dease I need to do more research on that. So far so good with my horse no signs of lyme and he's been ridden five to six days a week now for almost a month. Iam really watching out for any little sign of problems like stiffness in his gaits that's how it started last year.
