I do not have bacon in the house so I will not be using grease, I just want to understand how to make it work. It is a solid at room temperature so I am totally not seeing how one would get it on their horse.

I have been using the fly spray from Southern States it seems to work the best for my area. Its only 4.99 a bottle. I was using Bronco but it would only last a few hours. I feel horrible the flies are the worst on my horse as he is grey and the others are chestnut and they seem to leave them alone.

I just put the bacon grease right behind the ear and that's all I need.

Oh, so it is not protecting the whole horse. Just the ears.
I suppose that works if that is only place you want to protect.

I knew an old timer that put tractor grease on the areas that gants chewed raw. But not a food grease.

I have had GREAT luck with This product when it comes to those darn gnats. I just have to remember to smear it on all the appropriate places every day.

I use repeal-x spray. I also have flytraps in the barn, and use fly predators on the manure pile. Just added the fly predators this year and I think there is improvement. I also spray the stalls in the morning before they come in. The fans help in the stalls, too.
We do get horseflies and ticks really bad here and nothing works on them. I mix the repeal-x strong and that helps a bit. Also, almost all fly sprays say that they will work for 3 or more days. I spray the horses about every other day.

I really hate flies and so do my horses.

Back, I am not sure how close your manure pile is to your barn but be careful spraying your stalls and such if you use predators. You do not want to kill off your helpful little predator guys by accident.

I have a biting fly trap, that helps with the green heads and deer flies. I have a fan outside under the over hang that keeps the air under the over hang moving all day. They have individual fans in their stalls (which they have access to in the evening and over night).
