A recent survey¹ found that 33 percent of horse owners used a natural fly spray in the past year. This is a significant increase over previous surveys, as more people seek effective, environmentally friendly insecticides.

Created by nature and proven by science, Equisect™ is the first and only natural fly spray² to combine truly effective control of flies and other insect pests – with an unequalled level of environmental responsibility.

Equisect has been tested and proven to kill and repel five types of flies, mosquitoes, lice and gnats on horses, ponies and foals. It also kills and repels fleas and ticks on dogs and cats. When tested against Absorbine® SuperShield Green®, EQyss Summer Defense™ and Larry’s ® natural fly sprays in field studies³, Equisect has proven to provide the greatest reduction of flies. Farnam is so confident that you’ll be 100 percent satisfied with Equisect that they are offering a full money-back guarantee.

An exclusive, botanically-derived natural pyrethrum called PyGanic®, extracted from a species of chrysanthemum, is the active ingredient in Equisect. It was specially developed for insect control in organic farming – where safety is a primary concern.

PyGanic was the first pyrethrum to comply with the Crop Protection Standards established by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI), a non-profit organization created to provide an independent review of products intended for use in certified organic production, handling and processing.

Not only is Equisect the only equine fly spray listed on OMRI’s Products List, but it has also undergone all the necessary scientific testing and review required for EPA registration. Consumers can be confident that the product has been thoroughly tested.

With nearly six decades of expertise in the perennial fight against these enemies of all horses and their owners, Farnam is proud to be the Official Fly Control Products sponsor of the United States Equestrian Federation® (USEF).
