Absorbine
Ultra Shield EX
Fly Control



Manufacturer: Absorbine
Model: Ultra Shield EX
Category: Fly Control

Purchase: I have bought this fly spray many times from many different places, both online stores and local tack stores. I generally pay around $18 for a spray bottle. I spent a long time searching for the right fly spray, and I finally bought this because I noticed that EVERY SINGLE PERSON in my entire (large) 4-H club was using this fly spray, so I figured it must be good. It was.

Likes: The most effective fly spray I have ever found. I have tried Bronco, Equi-Sect, Pyranha, Tri-Tec, and many other kinds, but Ultra Shield EX is far and away the best. I boarded my horse at a barn that was right next to a large pond and in a marshy area, and the bugs of all types were the worst I have ever seen--huge swarms of horseflies, deer flies, black flies, mosquitoes, gnats, etc. My mare had thin skin and was especially bothered by the bugs. I would see an immediate difference when I sprayed this on--one moment, they would be attacking her mercilessly, and I would spray it and then there would be maybe 2 or 3 left in the area. Also this fly spray lasts longer, did a good job protecting my bay mare from sunbleaching, and is not as bad as most if you get it in your eyes or inhale it. It seems less bad-chemical-y, if that makes sense.

Dislikes: Absolutely nothing. Obviously it does not repel 100% of the bugs, but one can't really expect a fly spray to do that.

Quality: The sprayer is really high quality. The only time I had one break was when my mare knocked over my grooming tote and stepped directly on the sprayer. It sprays a wide, even spray. In general it is a great fly spray.

Summary: I highly recommend this above any other fly spray on the market. Use it. You will not be disappointed.
