About Farnam Fly Control Products

Three-Stage Fly Control

Three-Stage Fly Control

When it comes to fly control, you have more options than ever before. And while there’s no single solution that will completely banish these pests, Farnam’s three-stage approach—block, repel, reduce—lets you fight flies on all fronts. That means using different products for specific scenarios to achieve the most effective fly control.

Farnam’s No Fly Zone

Flies can spread diseases that are debilitating or even life-threatening. You do not want these pests hanging around your horse or barn if you can avoid it! The key to victory against flying pests is attacking them on multiple levels.

Block with Physical Barriers

The best way to keep flies off your horse’s face is to block them with a good fly mask, which also protects against dust, dirt and debris.

Repel and Kill Pests

Your horse’s environment will help determine whether a spray, spot-on or wipe-on fly repellent is best.

Reduce Pest Population

To complete the No Fly Zone, give your horse a feed-through fly control product with ingredients that work through the manure, not the body.

    Great product

    By horse on Sep 20, 2021

    This works and doesn't leave any sticky residue you don't even notice it's on. Keeps the flies off they don't land on you. I will have this in every tack room trailer and barn from now on!

    Repellent works well, but sprayer is very loud.

    By escatty on Jun 22, 2020

    Bought this for a horse that doesn't like the sprayer sounds. It said it was quieter, but it actually makes more noise than my other regular sprayer. Would not purchase again since there is much less product in this container and although the repellent works OK, there are other products as good or better for the same price.
