Farnam
Roll-on Fly Repellent
Fly Control



Manufacturer: Farnam
Model: Roll-on Fly Repellent
Category: Fly Control

Purchase: Strolling through the aisles at the local Minor Bros., I stumbled upon a small white unit of fly spray that could be rolled onto your horses face and around wounds. Deciding to give it a try, I dropped it into my armful of other products and proceeded to the register.

Likes: This stuff actually works pretty well! It lasts for almost a whole day, and is easy to roll on, though my horses find the scent a bit strong when I am rolling it on the noses. Also, my mare always got nasty black fly bites around her teats, but after applying this product around there, the bites healed up as the black flies were repelled. The swelling from the bites has now started to go down too! It is very versatile- you can apply it on the face, legs, genitals and other sensitive, hard to spray areas.

Dislikes: My horses resent having it rolled onto their face, that's about it. The smell of citronella must be a bit strong for their poor sensors! Other than that it is a great product, easy to apply if your horse will stand having something smelly rubbed on its head and ears.

Quality: Neat little applicator, easy to use. Has been dropped a couple times, nearly stepped on too, but has pulled through without a scratch. The actual repellent really repels and kills the bugs it claims (face flies, house flies, etc.).

Summary: This is a wonderful little unit. I had doubts about it, because of the rather sad Bronco fly spray that Farnam has out, but this stuff does its job far better than its relative. If flies are always biting or crawling on your horses sensitive spots, give this a try. For best results, try and time applications of this fly repellent and other sprays according to when the bugs you want to kill are out, that may mean rotating fly sprays and repellents throughout the year.
