Absorbine SuperShield Red Fly Repellent & Insecticide Tops the List for Water Resistant Protection

Horse Fly Control

Absorbine SuperShield Red is a hard-working fly product for your hard-working horses. Whether you are riding in hot weather for business or pleasure, you want to keep your partner comfortable and free from biting flies, mosquitoes, and gnats under the wettest conditions. Immediate results can be obtained by spraying with SuperShield Red Fly Repellent & Insecticide. SuperShield Red has been awarded the title of “Editor’s Choice” and “Best Buy” by the prestigious Horse Journal testing team. Horse Journal states, “This product had the most obviously immediate effect of all and held its effectiveness the best throughout a sweaty workout. Conditions the coat as well.” (May, 2008)

Absorbine SuperShield Red contains the highest level of pyrethrins of any major brand. Pyrethrins kill the fly by attacking its central nervous system and have a very quick knockdown effect. The active ingredients kill and repel for up to three days, while the coat conditioners make it an excellent grooming aid that conditions, detangles, and add body and shine without a greasy residue.
