I live in SE Texas, and we have a horrible fly season. I bought this at my local tack store because it was the least expensive bottle on the shelf. After maybe 10-20 minutes, the flies came right back. I ended up using my trainer's fly spray and it killed and repelled a lot longer than that. Well, I guess it was you get what you paid for.
The pleasant smell is only the start of why I choose this herbal repellent. My horse's coats are well conditioned and shine. I have a health issue which has necessitated avoiding any chemical pesticides. I usually get the concentrate (which is a great deal) and dilute it as directed, making plenty for our three horses for nearly 2 months!!!
I Love this stuff! No fly spray I've ever used works very long anyway, but this is so gentle and smells so good that you won't mind using it on yourself. Wonderful natural oils, I've been using it for years !
