Fly Spray

I realize that no fly spray is going to work 100%...BUT I would like to know what semi-works for you all! I don't have issues with reapplying fly spray every several days when needed. Flies here are ALREADY soooo bad!

I love absorbine flyshield, seems to work wonderfully.

The owner of the barn is experimenting with apple cider vinegar this summer (a tiny bit in their feed) since thats supposed to help keep the flies away. Anyone else use that?? How does it work?

Piranha fly spray works the best for us.

Ditto. I think it works alright. Well, actually I have to put a lot on Sunny since he can't feel his tail and swish flies. It's sad.

Absorbine here too. Bronc didn't work for us at all.

I'm trying Permethrin - 10 Concentrate Livestock & Premise Spray. It mixes 1/8 oz to a gallon of H2O. It supposedly repells and kills all types flies, mosquitoes and ticks. I sprayed my 2 gelding last week and they haven't seemed to be bothered by anything much so far. Its suppose to last 2 -3 weeks. I decided to try it because my guys were getting ticks bad.

I buy those fly predators and they work so well around the barn that i only use cheap stuff at home like Bronco and the good stuff (pyrannah or endure) at shows...
