Spot On! Equi-Spot for the win - mostly for ticks.
While I didn't notice a significant reduction in flies on my three horses, I DID notice dead ticks after they came in from the lower pasture. I've applied this product, twice, on my three horses, two weeks apart. I live in the southern Piedmont of NC where plenty of flying, crawling, and otherwise annoying pests and insects are around. I consider this a win. For fly control, my other methods are: 1. disposable fly bags with attractant. 2. compost pile (manure and bedding from run-in sheds. 3. spread manure in pastures often with drag harrow. 4. fly predators 5. fly repellant spray and now 6. Equi-Spot. I'm happy with this purchase and feel the value for the money is equivalent.
Beware sensitivity and reactions
I used the Equispot spot treatment on two horses. One of which had a severe reaction within 5 minutes of application. Violent rolling, rearing, throwing himself against the stall walls. The symptoms disappeared as soon as I was able to give him a thorough bath to remove the product.
a must have for the plague of ticks and their diseases
my horse is just now recovering from a debilitating and expensive bout with lyme. I normally use equi-spot but stopped with the cold weather--big mistake! We had a few warmer days and he got at least one tick bite and eventually developed symptoms. He has never had a reaction or problems with this product and it has helped to keep him safe before. Most horses can tolerate it just fine and I feel that any risk from the chemicals are less than the devastation of these tick borne illnesses. BTW I had also used spray on products (both natural and synthetic) when discontinuing the eqi-spot and he still got bitten and ill. We have many many deer tick in my area. I really recommend using it if you do too. As a note, he didn't test positive and never had a fever but did have many other symptoms (severe soreness and stiffness, incredible loss of energy etc) and is making a full recovery with minocycline. Don't rely on the tests (they are often inaccurate) and listen to your gut if your horse seems unwell. The sooner you catch it the better.
works pretty good!
I had never used this product before but it did seem to work pretty well. I have 4 horses that hate the spray bottle so this was much easier than wiping them down at least every two days. I had to figure out how to get just a drop here and there, The applicator might need a little work. I like to put stuff on their belly, and it was hard to do with this.
It's just OK
This is our fourth time putting this on our horse. (My dad bought some through our local farm store, but I purchased this last one through Chewy because the price is better.) We've heard it takes time to build up to complete fly control. We still have flies, but worse than the flies are the horseflies. They just latch onto our girl and don't come off. Ugh. So many horse flies. Willing to keep trying this product to see if we just have to use it more, but will definitely be looking at a different product that can help with the horse flies better.
I have used this for years. One trick to it working like it is intended to it to use it consistently throughout the fly season. Nothing works to keep 100% of any insects off but if you put this on your horse on a two week schedule, it’s like it builds up to provide the best protection. You won’t see the best control with just one application at first. But you will start to see it working after the second and third doses. So give it 4-6 weeks to take effect. And then keep using it all summer every two weeks!
WOW chewy thanks.
Really works but best was delivery was actually on time
Super fast shipping
Love this product for repelling ticks! Great price and super fast shipping.
Not what I was hoping for
The Farnam equi-spot was disappointing, I was hoping for a product that would work like a fly spray concentrate and last for at least 2 days with out needing to be re applied. Unfortunately I didn’t notice this product working at all, I even applied 2 doses at once on all the areas in the directions. I will not be purchasing this product again.
Well I applied the flight control and also had to use double doses on my horses so far doesn't seem like it's work Tammy guards to flies might try it again I don't know it is kind of pricey for not working
