Yup ecovet is best I've found. My horses hate it so much though so I try to only use it when I'm riding. The equideerma still seems to be working well though! So I'm using that for at home and ecovet for trails.

Cold black tea, cider vinegar, garlic and Avon Skin so Soft body lotion. It tends to separate so you have to shake it really well before using if you mix larger amounts.
We also used to use a British antiseptic liquid called TCP to repel midges.
Both work about as well as anything else does and nothing is really 100% effective

Just winging it is not a plan
