Fly and Mosquito Control
Has anyone ever used Equi-Spot? We have thousands of mosquitos and flies out at our place and are in need of something to help our horses from going crazy. Any advice on what to use or if you like Equi-Spot would be great.

I use homemade flyspray: half water, half Neem oil, lavender oil, lemongrass oil, tea tree oil, and eucalyptus oil (I just wing how many drops of each that I put in it). Neem oil gets really thick so you will have to keep adding water to thin it out. Works like a charm, keeps the ticks off them too. Hope that helps.

I don't know how it works for mosquitoes, but EquiSpot is really helping my sensitive gelding. He gets hives and rubs like crazy from fly bites, and the vet suggested ES. It's working great for him.
