Fly Repel - Feed & Supplements 

To treat horses for flies, you can follow several methods and practices to help keep these pesky insects at bay. Here are some strategies you can implement: 
 
• Fly Sprays and Repellents: Apply fly sprays and repellents designed for horses. These products can be in the form of sprays, wipes, or roll-ons. Follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer for safe and effective use. 
 
• Fly Masks and Sheets: Use fly masks and sheets made specifically for horses. These coverings provide protection for the horse's face, neck, and body. Fly sheets can also help shield the horse from direct exposure to flies and their bites. 
 
• Stable Maintenance: Keep the stable or barn clean and well-maintained. Regularly remove manure and soiled bedding, as these can attract flies. Consider using fly predators or beneficial insects that prey on flies to help control their population. 
 
• Pasture Management: Maintain good pasture management practices. Avoid overgrazing, as it can create ideal breeding grounds for flies. Rotate pastures regularly, remove manure, and mow tall grass to minimize fly habitats. 
 
• Supplementary Feed Additives: Consider adding feed-through fly control supplements to the horse's diet. These supplements contain substances that pass through the horse's system and prevent fly larvae from developing in manure. 
 
• Natural Remedies: Some natural remedies, such as essential oils like citronella, lavender, or eucalyptus, may have fly-repellent properties. However, be cautious when using essential oils around horses and consult with a veterinarian for proper usage. 
 
Remember that no single method may completely eliminate flies, but by using a combination of these strategies, you can significantly reduce their numbers and provide your horses with relief from these pests. If you have specific concerns or persistent fly problems, it's always best to consult with a veterinarian or equine specialist for personalized advice.
