Manufacturer: Farnam (View all products by Farnam)

Model: Equisect Fly Spray (View all Equisect Fly Repellent reviews)

Category: Fly Control

Purchase: I acquired this product for about $17 for 16 oz. of spray from a home and garden/feed store.

Likes: I like the fact that is is somewhat organic and less harmful then other sprays. I also like the smell.

Dislikes: Unfortunately, this product does not last 1/4 as long as other sprays that have chemicals.

Quality: The bottle is a typical fly spray bottle, attractively packaged.

Summary: I was really excited to have another "less harmful" spray to try out there on the market. Other similar sprays never lasted and I was resorting to the most chemical filled ones to keep my horse comfortable. Unfortunately, I found that this spray does not work as well as those chemical filled sprays. I didn't expect it to do as good of a job but within 10 minutes of applying it my horse was being attacked. I live in the northeast, it is summer, no wetlands but we still have flies. I am a copious and careful fly spray applier, I use a mitt and go against the hair, brush off all dirt before, etc but still, this spray failed. I am disappointed because I had heard many good things. Oh well, back to the other stuff, although I may try Flicks, I have heard good things about that one too!
