my horse is allergic to flyspray

My horse is allergic to flyspray, he gets hives all over his body when I put it on. I need something else that works like flyspray but isnt flyspray. I tried human bug spray and it seems to work a little but not as well. Any suggestions?

Avon skin so soft works well, apple cider vinegar is supposed to be too. I am sure you can google home made ones....I vaguely remember one from years ago with dish soap, garlic and a few other things.......

You can use Apple cider vinegar as a feed through, as well as use it on him. There are alot of different fee through bug protection products as well, that are more natural, and contain things like the ACV, and such...

Is he allergic to all fly sprays or only the oil based ones?

Avon skin so soft and also you can go to health food stores and cintronella oil.
Just a few drops in water with the skin so soft.
Also you can 'google' natural fly repellents .

A person at my barn whose horse has sensitive skin had a bad reaction to the skin so soft, but it seems like a lot of other people have success with it. My horse's skin is really sensitive too I feed the apple cider vinegar and for fly spray I switch between Flicks and Deo lotion I'm pretty sure they are both made with essential oils they seem to work well and don't bother my horses skin. Also if he's really allergic to all sprays maybe try a fly sheet, fly mask, I think they have fly leg wraps too.
