Defy the Fly Leg Bands
Defy the Fly Leg Bands are all natural and contain no harmful chemicals and lasts for up to 2 months. Once the leg bands are placed around the animal's legs, the ingredients begin generating a deterrent effect against flies, fleas, mosquitoes, ticks and no-see-ums for up to 2 months. The Defy the Fly Leg Bands are not intended for full body protection from flies, but for limited coverage around the legs. The bands should fit snugly, yet loose enough that one or two fingers can fit between the band and leg. This leg band contains Geraniol, a new alternative to DEET.

This is my second order for these. Tried them on the pasture horses first and then the next week took 2 horses on a week trail riding vacation. They worked fantastic! There were probably 200 horses stalled there when we weren't riding. All our trips before we just kept putting fly sprays on and they were still getting eaten up. Not this trip. The only downside, we were taking them on and off each ride because we were crossing creeks and a rivers and it says not to get wet. So sometimes it was harder to re-snap them back together. The ones we leave on all the time in the pasture don't have that problem with. We have some of our boarders asking for them now.
"Defy the Fly Leg Bands"
I love this product, my gray gelding get bloody every year on his front legs. This product stops it right now. I have tried everything you can think of to stop the flies, nothing worked until I tried this product. He leaves them alone and they last me a full month. This year all my horses are wearing them .
"Defy the fly"
Finally after years of chasing flies off my horses ankles as they chewing to bring out blood. His ankles now stay nice and white and healthy. Best product and lasts a long time.
I found the leg fly bands hard to snap on, but within a day one horse lost one and a couple weeks later , the other one. I noticed parts missing so wonder if he was biting at the band. I still saw/heard stomping, so don't know as they were keeping the flies away. The white socked horse had dirty marks where the bands were so took them off. They really smelled like fly spray though
"Did not work for my horses"
I was really excited reading the reviews and thought I finally had found something to combat flies. But for my 3 horses they did not keep the flies off and within a few days all the horses had pulled off the bands and lost them in the pasture. So I must have more virulent flies and more devious horses.
These work great as far as protection goes. Even after about 3 weeks they were still protected from peskybiting flies and gnats, but around 2 days after I put them on the front right fell off. The snaps are weak and broke almost immediately, i think that if they put a layer of Velcro over the top of the snaps then they would be a lot more effective, until this improvement takes place I will be purchasing my fly leg bands elsewhere
My grey mare was being bitten by fly's really bad. And these leg bands have stayed on and help a lot.
I have a pony that chews her legs bloody every year and this year I bought these boots and she has a few bald spots on her ankles but nothing like she normally has every summer. She did lose one that she probably chewed off but I took one of the back ones and moved it up front because she chews them more. Great product.
These work well. If your horse is sensitive, then remove them at night. This will prevent any irritation.
"doesnt work for very long"
after a week, noticed less flies hanging around but after 2nd week it seems to be the same then more flies came back
I have a chestnut mare w/ 4 white socks. Bugs constantly tear her legs up in the summer. I bought these being very skepital but i am very pleased to see they really work they still git her a little but thats what fly spray is for they protect her legs so much more than just fly spray alone can. Thanks jeffers for carrying a great product!
I have a black horse and these things work great. I get 2 sets a year and they last me all summer. You can re-soak in fly spray and re-attach to last longer. Great product.
Keep flys off great. But they do tend to come off easy.
