Get ahead of the flies this summer!

Flies can be a real problem during the summer months- they can irritate, upset, annoy and drive horses (and their owners) to distraction! The good news is that there are products that can really help to keep flies away, ideal for when your horse is in the field and when you’re riding, to help you both enjoy the positives of summer. In this blog, we’ve put together a quick guide to our fly repellent products to help you select the best fly repellent to help keep your horse happy this summer….

Fly Repellent Gel 35351. Fly Repellent Gel 3535– this is one of the latest additions to our fly repellent range and contains an ingredient called Ethyl Butylacetylaminopropionate (or IR 3535) to help keep flies away. We launched this product last year after testing it during 2012. Not only did we find that this horse fly repellent was very effective (especially when compared to products based on Deet), it also lasted a long time…our 500g tubs will last the average horse for just over a month.

**New 50g trial size available now- for just £2.50, you can try our Fly Repellent Gel 3535…or why not get one for your competition kit?**

2.   Extra Strength Fly Spray– this is a popular choice with people whose horses are very sensitive to flies…and it also has the added advantage of not generating any allergic reactions to date…which can be a problem with some fly sprays.

This fly spray was tested in the Far East where they have flies and biting insects all year round. It performed really well…and it does very well over here too! A little goes a long way, so a bottle will last.

Fly Repellent Cream3. Fly Repellent Cream– gentle and easy to apply, this handy, easy to use cream helps to repel midges and other flying insects, including mosquitoes. It uses essential oils along with other carefully selected ingredients to help keep your horse or pony fly free.

4. Fly Repellent Spray– made using essential oils from six different sources (and some other carefully selected ingredients) this is a well priced fly repellent that really works. It comes in a variety of different sizes to suit your needs, including a quiet spray bottle for more sensitive horses.

5. Biting Midge Cream– this clever product helps to repel midges and biting insects and also soothes and cools irritated skin. It uses tea tree oil, chamomile extract and apricot oil in addition to other active ingredients to create an easy to apply cream.
