I’m sure I’m not alone stressing about flies this year. They are out of control! We’ve sprayed the pasture twice with no relief. 3 spray-on repellent brands I’ve tried aren’t effective this year. Wondering if a dry lot would offer a reduced fly area for them? My herd makes their own little dirt spots to roll, so thinking of just making it more official. Or is it a lot of work for nothing? Thoughts?

What I've found helps is is to give them a shaded, darker area as the flies seem less in the darker shaded area.
We have automatic fly sprayer that dispenses a metered amount of fly deterrent every few minutes.
When my horses have had enough...in my case they go under the barn roof for respite.
We screwed this to the wall where it dispenses covering a large area reducing fly activity greatly...

Most online places that have horse products have these available as do home improvement stores, Walmart...places that deal with animals carry these machines and replacement canisters...
Good luck, the flies are terrible nasty this year everywhere.

I didn’t know this product existed! Thank you so much. I will give it a try!
