I use Pyranha. Its really the only fly spray that I have ever found that truly works!

"Pyranha Wipe N' Spray: Is a pyrethrum-based formula that is applied directly on the animal. This ready-to-use product provides fly protection and imparts a high sheen to the hair when brushed out. A favorite of show horse owners, effective protection results from only 1 to 2 ounces per head. Wipe N' Spray is citronella scented and contains lanolin as a coat conditioner. It has been proven effective on biting flies, mosquitoes, gnats, fleas and ticks. "

I llike the pyranha also. It works very well. Its really the only stuff i have found that keeps the flys off for a long period of time.

I use Country Vet or Ultrashield EX. They're both .50 % pyrethrins, which is the highest commercial amount you can buy. The Country Vet works they best IMO, but the Ultrashield works longer. I also use Equispot in addition to fly spray in the really buggy months.

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

You can use this roll-on stuff;
Farnam® Endure® Roll-On - Horse.com
I dont have any experience with it. But it should work for ears.

I use Wipe by farnam and LOVE it. It works great and smells awesome. =]

I have found Endure to be the best, (I have only tried the spray) its expensive but it works..... But I rotate also as it seems to help to do that, I also use bug block, absorbine super shield and pyranha
