Horse & Livestock Fly Spray
"We live in New Jersey and we have horses and livestock. Every spring fly season begins again and my husband sprays with some toxic pesticides that only put a dent in the fly problem, and I can’t ride after spraying because it makes me a little sick. Then we found your Fly Spray for Horses. Once I convinced my husband how much safer it is to use, we tried it. Now our horses are calm and easy to work with because the flies are not biting or even buzzing around… and I can ride again without getting sick! What a difference a spray makes!"
"My prize winning Black Angus bull has always suffered from severe fly problems. It breaks my heart to see my pride and joy so miserable. I hate the toxic sprays – they don’t work and I’m afraid of hurting the big guy. My neighbor gave me his bottle of Cedar Bug Free Fly Spray to try and it was amazing! All the flies dropped off my bull and new flies could not land. They looked like aircraft coming in for a landing but couldn’t land on the runway. The next day he was still free of flies. I thank you and my bull thanks you!"

“For every horse-show we do, we carry a bottle of fly control spray. This year we want to use a safer product on our horses…”

Bugs that infest your horse-horse fly/bot fly
Pesticides are harmful to you and your horse
Every spring horses and livestock battle the horse flies and other biting flies that damage animal health and negatively affect behavior. Numerous painful welts from large populations of biting flies can reduce milk production from cattle and can interfere with cattle and horse grazing because animals under attack will bunch together. Horses may even injure themselves as they run to escape biting flies. Controlling horse flies, bot flies and other biting insects often requires the wrangler and horse or livestock to come in direct contact with poisonous chemicals that are unsafe for the environment.
There is a better way to protect horses and livestock from biting pests. An alternative biting fly control product has been developed from the wisdom of Nature using Red Cedar Oil and other organic ingredients. Get rid of biting insects on horses and livestock and from paddocks, barns and stables with long lasting results.
Cedar Bug-Free™ Fly Spray for Horses and Livestock kills flies, mosquitoes, gnats, ticks (including deer ticks), fleas, chiggers, lice, mites and other biting insects and then continues to work as a fly repellent. It even works as a mosquito repellent. A light misting of the Cedar Oil solution kills bugs on contact and provides all day protection that will not wear off, leaving a pleasant Cedar scent. It is also a natural fungicide and bactericide, and often helps heal skin problems on horses and cattle. It is safe for colts, fillies, ponies, and your family members too.
How it Works
When insects and other arthropods are exposed to Cedar Bug-Free™ Fly Spray for Horses and Livestock, the aroma of the Cedar Oil overwhelms their breathing system and triggers a suicide response—the spiracles (breathing pores) close and cannot re-open. The Cedar Oil and Hydrated Silica formulation also dissolves the insect eggs and larvae, eliminating the next generation of arthropod, while the aroma of Cedar disrupts their pheromone signals and creates a barrier of entry to newly arriving pests. Cedar Bug-Free™ Fly Spray for Horses and Livestock is more effective than other natural insecticides and is longer lasting.
How to Use It
Remove excess dirt and dust. Apply a liberal misting to coat and brush or rub it in for all day protection from biting insects. For horse’s face, always apply as a wipe using a clean cloth or sponge. Reapply daily; as protection builds, reapply every 5 to 7 days or as needed. Also, reapply each time the animal is washed or exposed to heavy rain. Spray onto horse droppings, in stalls and paddock and around your barn or stable area anywhere flies are breading. Spray these areas daily during fly season for maximum control.
Note: For foals or horses with sensitive skin, test on a small area. If redness occurs, discontinue use and wash area with mild soap and water.
CAUTION: AVOID CONTACT WITH EYES; if contact occurs, flush with water for at least 15 minutes. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. In case of ingestion, contact a physician.
