Flysect Super 7 Spray
Fly Control

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Equicare
Model: Flysect Super 7 Spray
Category: Fly Control

Purchase: I bought this item @ an Agway for $23.99. It is about a quart of insecticide with a sprayer top. I bought it because it advertised itself as being effective against lice, and seemed gentler than any available lice powders.

Likes: This fly spray effectively reduced and destroyed lice populations within three days. My horse itched less and less, and now is hardly itching at all. It did not irritate her skin either. (However I was currying it in, not spraying). It lasts a long time (effective up to three days) after combatting the intitial infestation of ticks, lice et. As a fly spray... no flies even dared to approach. As one who has always used natural fly sprays, I was amazed. Flysect Super 7 has a nice aromatic smell to it, to mask the occassional ethanolish blast of odor it creates. (Though I suppose if you're smelling it that's probably a bad thing.)

Dislikes: This is a relatively strong pesticide solution (20% pyrethrins), and for this reason I would not use it if I was just combatting flies, and certainly wouldn't apply it every day. I'm also not sure how deeply it could really penitrate a winter coat (for lice) as a spray, so currying or wiping it on is necessary. It is EXTREMELY toxic to aquatic life. The bottle reccommends wearing goggles, a dust mask and gloves when applying. That always worries me. Being a spray, I'd be afraid to spray it on b/c of wind outside as it might blow in your, or your horses eyes or face. Super 7 is expensive compared with lice dust, and other sprays specifically for flies and ticks.

Quality: Super Seven delivers on the pesticide front with two complete pesticide systems in one go. It contains a relatively high percentage of pesticides for a commercially available spray. The aloe and conditioners it contained actually did make my horse's coat shiny, so those must be fairly high quality too!

Summary: Flysect Super 7 is everything it claimes to be, including the toxic part. If you need a super strong kick for lice, ticks or some other difficult to kill and infesting insect, I would recommend it, but definately not for daily fly control...
