Fly Control That’s Easy on the Budget


Fly Control That’s Easy on the Budget

Whether you have a stable full of horses or just one, chances are you’ve got flies. This persistent problem confronts all horse owners and sends them to their local tack or farm and feed stores looking for products to provide their horses with relief from the many nasty, biting insects that target them.

Repel-XRp Emulsifiable Fly Spray provides cost-conscious horse owners with an economical fly control product that protects horses from numerous varieties of flies, plus gnats, mosquitoes and ticks that bother and bite throughout the summer.

Repel-XRp Emulsifiable Fly Spray is a concentrate that, when mixed with water at a 1 to 7 dilution, provides economical protection from house flies, horn flies, gnats and mosquitoes. A single application keeps them away for days. Where ticks, including deer ticks that may transmit Lyme disease, horse flies, deer flies and stable flies are a problem, apply a 1 to 4 dilution with water and repeat as needed.

“The Repel-XRp product is an excellent choice for fly control on a budget,” said Martha Lefebvre, marketing manager, Farnam Horse Products. “A 32-ounce bottle of concentrate makes eight 32-ounce bottles of ready-to-use spray. It also offers the versatility to mix product at the concentration that is correct for the insects you are dealing with during different times of the year.”

For more effective fly control, start with a clean horse by removing excess dirt and dust. Make sure animal’s coat is thoroughly wet using approximately 8 oz. for each animal depending on size of horse or pony. Always refer to the Directions for Use for complete information.

“Repel-XR products are also available in a ready-to-use spray and a lotion,” added Lefebvre.

Repel-XRp Emulsifiable Fly Spray is available in 16-ounce, 32-ounce and one gallon sizes and retails for about $22, $41 and $153 respectively.

FarnamR Fly Control products are proud to be the official fly control products of the American Quarter Horse Association and United States Equestrian Federation.
