Fly spray

Just wondering what everyone's fly spray brand preference is? Which brand do you feel has the best results?

Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.

I use a Permethrin 10% concentrate, mixed 15 ml to 32 oz of water. I love it.

Pyrahna (have to be careful, some horses have a reaction), Bronco Gold, Absorbine Endure. I rotate through these, because nothing works very well for very long.

In the past I've used several brands successfully. This year, however, NOTHING I've tried has worked.

I love Endure! It works like a charm.

I also used to mix an all natural fly spray with Avon Skin So Soft and that kept the bugs away on the hottest of days.

I love Endure, but mostly Pyrana! Works better then Endure, and anything I've ever tried. Its expensive, but I buy like four or five huge five-gallons every Tractor Supply and Southern States trip I take. Works best for me!

I've tried a ton of different ones. The best I've found is called Trigger it lasts longer than others- up to 14 days. I've found as long as it hasn't rained it lasts at least 7 days. Around here it's $18 but well worth every penny!

I LOVE Absorbine Ultrashield. It's the only thing I've found that works for my horses for longer than about 12 hrs. :) They claim it lasts for up to 14 days, but I've found it works for up to 5 days in good weather. It is strong stuff though, so I wouldn't recommend spraying every single day.
