How to Use It
If you’re a horse owner, then you know how important it is to keep those pesky flies away from your horses. If not managed properly, they can cause significant stress and discomfort for your animal. But what do you use as fly spray? Here we will discuss the best natural fly sprays for horses such as Stop Buggn so that you can find one that is perfect for each animal in your herd!
The first thing you’ll want to consider when choosing a fly spray is the ingredients. There are many different types of natural fly sprays available on the market, but not all of them are created equal. Some contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful to your horse, while others use all-natural ingredients that are safe and effective.
When looking for a natural fly spray, be sure to avoid those that contain:
· Pyrethrins – these chemicals can be toxic to horses and other animals
· Permethrin – also toxic and has been linked to cancer in humans
· DEET – this chemical is poisonous if ingested and should never be used on horses
Once you’ve found a natural fly spray without any of the harmful chemicals listed above, you’ll want to decide between two different types of sprays: oil-based or water-based. Oil based fly sprays are great for use in the winter when flies aren’t as active, but they can build up and clog your horse’s coat in warmer conditions. Water-based fly spray is designed to dry quickly and won’t weigh down a wet coat after a bath, but it doesn’t last quite as long on those hot summer days when flies are at their peak activity level!
Finally, don’t forget about the ingredients that make up your natural fly spray’s scent! Some horses like certain scents more than others (we’ve found peppermint works best!), so be sure to choose one that smells good enough for both you and your horse!
