Feed-Through Fly Control

Is it safe to use and does it work? Which brand works best?

I've used garleze and it worked well.

When is it best to start feeding the fly repellent so that it can be effective? Does it need once a day or twice?

It was once a day. And I noticed a difference after oh, maybe ten days. When to start on it I'd say that depends on your location. I'd dare to say a month before fly season just to have the jump on em. Here that's march give or take depending on the crazy weather. It can snow in April or be 60* in march.

My experience is the same. It doesn't completely eliminate the flies, but it makes a noticeable difference - maybe 50-70% fewer? My horses get it when I start noticing flies, and it takes 1-2 weeks to get the maximum out of it. In southern Arizona, I usually start end of March or so and continue until Thanksgiving.

I have tried it in the past and I didn't really see that it helped all that much. We still had tons of flies. It is expensive for what little good it does. It may depend on your location, humidity, and neighboring horses that may still have tons of flies breeding. I don't plan to use it again.

I probably should have pointed out that there aren't any other horses near mine. All our flies are 'produced' by my own horses.
