fly spray in stalls?

Is it okay that I sprayed fly spray (ultra shield red) in my horses bedding and lower walls? Or will she get it in her mouth when eating? There are so many flies in there!

Is she by herself in a shed or a large barn with others. Regardless, the darked you can make the building the flies will pretty much stay out. I hang heavy tarps over the doorway and cover the window on the outside.

She is in a stall by herself. I already sprayed it and that's why I was asking if it was okay.

I am mostly interested in finding out if it is bad that I did this and if it will bother more horse than what to do to keep flies out! Thanks :)

It will be fine. Just don't spray it on their food source

Okay thanks for your info! I didnt spray it on her hay or anything, she didnt even have hay yet :p!

She did get hay in there a few minutes after I sprayed though. Is that okay?

I wouldn't stress over it at all. But next time I wouldn't spray where you usually throw her hay or near her bowl. I have fly sprayers in the back of all my stalls....I feed in the front of the stalls. The sprayers spray every 15 mins

I wouldn't worry. I've sprayed them in their stalls plenty of times with no ill effects.
