I was wondering what fly spray is best to get. Or even better what is a good home made recipe. I have heard that endure is one of the better sprays out there. But I want to know what you guys believe to be the best fly spray. :D
Subbing because I am curious as well.
Ive used bronco and some new natural brand, neither of them work good at all.
This stuff. I swear by it.
It is a bit expensive, but it works SO SO SO well. I won a quart of it at a show I went to, and I can't go back to anything else. The horses have flymasks, and I simply spray them with this in the morning. Flies are AWFUL here, and they never move their tails. No more stomping, nothing. We do have fly predators, but just got them and they haven't set in yet. The horses all sweat their butts off out there - it's hot and humid here in the summer - and we still never see anything. Miss a morning by accident? No problem, you're still covered. This is the one and only fly spray I have found that truly works as good as the label says. We also apply this stuff every few months when it tells you to -
and we never have a problem!! The fly spray is Farnam: Endure, the spot stuff is Farnam: Equi-spot. We get both at our local feed store, you can get them online too.
Has anyone tried that new "Centaur" stuff from Farnam? I haven't heard anything about it, but I'd love to try it. I get ate up just as much as the horses do when it comes to flies and mosquitos.
Hi XjumperX- I have used Endure before & like it, but what do I do, because after every ride I have to hose her down throughly ? I'm in Florida & now there are biting flies we didn't have before.
I use the Equi-spot drops in combination with Pyrahna fly spray, and it works pretty well. :-)

@PinkyPony -- Why do you have to hose her down after every ride? If you have to, then just spray it back on after her mini-bath. At least, that's what makes the most sense to me.
@GamingGrrl -- Whenever the feed store is out of Endure, we use Pyrahna, works almost as well, so that's another vote up for Pyrahna here! :P
Thanks everyone this really helps!
I use Endure and it's my favorite. It's a little pricey, but it's worth it. My horse is a magnet for flies, and I don't understand why lol. I also used something called Bug Blocker or something like that. It was also expensive and in a big black bottle. It worked pretty nifty too.
