My Snipper freaks out, leaves her feed to run inside the shed. She's allergic to anything biting, rubs herself raw, chest and face, and literally bites holes in her legs. This year she's a little better due to the flax I'm giving her. The Mosquito Halt was the only thing that lasted longer than an hour.

I love Repel! I buy the concentrate so I can mix it however I want to. Normally I mix it really weak and it works just fine for normal flies and gnats. If the flies get bad, or if those big boogers come out, I mix it stronger and they stay away.

I like Repel X. You can buy it concentrate, so you can make it stronger or weaker depending on what flies are out at the moment. It's doesn't smell awful to me, either. Pyranha worked great, but the smell of it gave me migraines so I had to stop using it. The place I work uses tri tec 14, which seems to work pretty well, although the smell of that makes my head hurt too.

For my horse, I stick with Repel X, Farnam roll on for her legs and muzzle and Swat for her (very sensitive) udder

(1) HANDS DOWN--Fly Predators
(2) Wash down legs during grooming and after workouts with some Mane N'Tail in the water--no smell, no flies
(3) Repex X, concentrated, so I can mix it like I want
(4) SWAT around the eyes and on the ears during fly season

Pyrahna spray is my favorite, we're having pretty bad flies already in the day, and horrible Mosquitos during the evening, and it's worked for keeping both off.
I rinse my horses (weather permitting) if they are sweaty because it seems to attract flies.
In the summer I use a sunscreen/fly control combo for faces and muzzles, it's a lotion and is really easy to apply to ears, around eyes, muzzles, ect.
I hang those sticky fly strips in the barn too, high enough that they don't get eaten or tangled in a mane.

Kendall, they tell you to start early with the F.P.'s, AND to use other methods too. THIS is bc they aren't there when you dispense the product. If you put it out in dry places, the little bugs will die.
I live on the west street of a little town of 200 and my neighbors have noticed the difference.
