I tried one last year with no noticeable difference, but this year I'm using Springtime Bug Off Garlic and seeing a definite difference. I wasn't sure at first, but today was very humid day. When I went out to get my horse, he was hanging out with his best buddy. Both horses are dark bay. They were standing nose to nose. The other horse had flies climbing all over his face. My horse had none. My horse also gets attacked on his belly by no-see-ums. While he is still itchy this year, it's nowhere near the raw belly he had last year. So far all the hair is there for the first time in the 3 years I've had him. It's not a miracle supplement. Flies do still hover around him and some still land. Yesterday one of those nasty green biting ones took a nice chunk out of him. That being said, I'll try anything that gives him any relief from flies, so I'm glad that this stuff works, at least in part. It is only available in powder form, and it STINKS of garlic. If you have a picky eater, you may be out of luck. Otherwise, give it a try.
