    I feed my horses a prepared garlic powder through Springtime Inc. Work great. No flies, ticks ect.. I didn't even need to put up any fly strips at the barn. The horses love the garlic powder in their feed too. Will stop feeding it after the snow flies, and ticks won't be an issue. The no flies is just an added bonus for me.

    I even used fly predators for years, and they were effective, but nothing like the garlic powder.

    I use Bug Lyte and have found it to be quite effective. My horse readily eats it; I use it as a topical dressing on top of abit of grain. It's very garlicky but relishes it. From a results effective I noticed a distinct improvement in his coat as he was not being bitten as much so most of the bumps under his skin disappeared. Hope that helps!

    I think that most of us have a lack of understanding of your terminology.

    Yes, Dawn is just your typical "washing up liquid". We Americans call it "dish washing liquid". The term "washing up" is not used here; I only know it because my son spent two years on your side of the pond. We call it "washing the dishes".
