      Comments about Farnam Equisect™ Fly Repellent 128 oz.:

      This is the least toxic fly spray I've ever used I wasn't sure it would do the job but when I compared it to a heavy duty spray the Equisect pulled through. Glad I purchased it.


      Love this fly spray

      Comments about Farnam Equisect™ Fly Repellent 128 oz.:

      I don't like using chemical based products on the horses. Equisect does the job as well as chemical based fly sprays. Easy to fill up spray bottles, since it doesn't require any water/concentrate ratio, it's ready to use.

      • Smells Great

      Best Uses

      • On My Breeches
      • On My Hat
      • On my horse

      Comments about Farnam Equisect™ Fly Repellent 128 oz.:

      I really like this product because it works well, smells good and doesn't bother my horse in any way and does not give me a headache like many other fly sprays. Because it is mainly a natural product, I feel confident in spraying it on my cap and clothes when the flies are biting me as well as my horse. The only real con is that it doesn't last as long as oil based fly sprays. But a good thing is that it washes easily out of my clothes because it is water based. This is the only fly spray I use and I recommend it highly.

      Great for sensitive horses.

      Comments about Farnam Equisect™ Fly Repellent 128 oz.:

      If your horses are sensitive and you have multiple horses out together that "scratch" each other's backs, this product will not bother them if they consume some.

      This is a great product for horses that cannot tolerate chemical fly products. I find that it works as well as most chemical based products.
