I have never seen any fly spray work for more than 5 minutes. I've sprayed my horses down liberally and within minutes the flies return. I've given up on fly spray. I just use swat on his chest, belly and i'll put some on his ears (only when i ride) He wears a fly mask during the day. It is the ONLY thing that I find works. I"ve wasted a lot of money on fly spray.

It depends on the horse. Different horses, different chemical makeup in their body. Unfortunately you have to try different brands until you find the one that works for your horse. We have three different brands for our personal horses.

(just like different perfumes for humans)

I'm a big fan of Bite Free. It also has SPF in it. I think I might have to try Kitten Val's Whup-A-Bug based on the name alone! Best name for flyspray ever!
