I've tried Avon Skin So Soft mixed with water and white vinegar. It worked as well as or better than the other fly sprays I've tried.

Though I've only used it twice (it's quite expensive) endure is some really good stuff. Heck, I sometimes even spray in on myself when I don't have an repellent for people.

I like Bronco, myself. It's fairly inexpensive, and lasted my mare through a eight-hour long speed show.

I personally only use Bronco fly spray. Listening to word of mouth around the barn, Ultrashield and Tri-Tec 14 are also top brands.

Bronco doesn't work that well for me. It is great at first but if I go for a ride and they get sweaty, it's like I never sprayed them. Plus we have got everything from gnats, noseeums, mosquitos, face flies, regular flies, horse flies, deer flies, and some other type that is like over an inch long. I am glad you started this post because I also need to find something that will work well and for a long time.

Fly management is not the issue with me as I ride lots of trails through trees, along creeks, and amongst cattle so i pick up flies everywhere and bring them home with me. LOL.

For daily use I like a mixture of skin so soft, water, vineger, garlic powder, and eucaliptus oil. Then when I go out on the trail I use Bronco Gold.

Endure works and so does Skin So Soft from Avon (esp. for inside their ears). But my absolute favorite is Pyranha. I've never had good luck with Bronco.

The SOS was worthless here in MI. Sure the flies left when I sprayed, but were back less than a minute later. The lady who keeps my horse for me as one of just about everything in her garage for fly spray and none of them work.

Most days I spray and don't make it down the driveway before we're both covered in flies and mosquitoes.

I've tried them all, and I have the best luck with Endure. I live in the South where bugs are rampid lol, and it works
