Category: Fly Control
Purchase: I bought this product in a quest to find good fly control that lasted longer than 1 week. I purchased this at State Line Tack for $7.50 which includes 3 treatments.
Likes: I like the spot on idea and that it works for a few days.
Dislikes: I don't like that it does not last for 2 weeks and you cannot re-apply for 2 weeks. The product also mentions not to apply other fly sprays for those 2 weeks as well. So, for exactly 12 days my horses endured biting flies. The product lasted exactly 2 days and my horses were re-infested with flies. In addition, the application around the legs is not easy by the design of the product. It is easier to apply the product on the ground than on the horse!
Quality: The construction is not very good. Every time I have applied the spot on I have also spilled some on my hands. It is not easy to apply and does not resist flies long enough to justify the purchase.
Summary: I cannot recommend this product for long term fly relief as it does not provide relief that is marketed on the box.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
