fly spray reviews
I was wondering what kind of fly spray you all use and what you have found that works and what doesn't. I am currently using a 'natural' fly spray that smells really nice but it really doesn't work. But I read the other bottles and I don't like that they have pyrethrins and such in them.
This is the recipe I used back in Vancouver.. the flies still landed on them but there did not bit...
1 cup water
1 cup Avon Skin So Soft Bath Oil
2 cups vinegar
1 tbs. Eucalyptus oil (found in health food stores)
Optional: few tablespoons of citronella oil.
Heres a good site with some more recipes

I use Pyranha Equine fly spray and it is AWESOME and I love the smell.
Ive tried EVERYTHING! from the natural fly sprays, to the homemades...fly are getting just as bad as fleas as far as getting immune to things...the only that has worked for me for a while now is the Endure!..its water and sweat resistant as well...
I use OFF or Cutter bug sprays for people, it doesn't smells as great, but works great, especially on ears and such.

I have had very good luck with Pyranha in the aerosol can.
And if I going riding some where with nasty bugs I use deep woods off.
Endure. That stuff is a God send...seriously, I don't know what I'd do without it. The flys and other pesky bugs are starting already.
You ought to go check out Automist, one of horseforum's sponsors.
I use endure also, it is a bit spendy, but it works pretty well.
