Apply small amounts of War Paint to kill and repel face, horn, stable, house, black, and bot flies on horses and foals. Small amounts of War Paint are placed on the horse where flies tend to congregate. Attaches to the hair and slowly releases the insecticide for weeks. For full body control: apply 1 gram under each eye, 2 grams on withers and 2 grams on each leg. Each tube of War Paint contains 8 applications.
It is so nice to find a product that really does what it claims to do. This stuff is amazing and so easy to use. I re-apply about every 10 days, and the flies stay off of my horse! She gets dermatitis from fly bites, and this stuff has kept her fly-free and happy. This is a great product and I am a big fan!
I have been using War Paint on my horses for years. I rub small spots of it scattered across the horse, paying particular attn to the legs and belly. It takes a day or so to become effective (use fly spray) but then it works for up to 2 weeks! I find it best to reapply at 10 days though. It's the only thing that kept my mule from literally being eaten alive. It does leave a dirty streak so don't use it if you show or under your saddle.
