Stop pests at the source

Stop pests at the source
Tired of endlessly spraying for flies? Sick of choking on chemical repellents? Prevent pests from becoming a problem in the first place! We’ve got four simple ways you can ensure your horses are fly-free all season long. For an even bigger bug-busting boost, combine a few of the options below. Even if a few flies slip through your nets, there’s a solution for that, too!

1 – Stop mosquitoes before they start
Standing water is a hot spot for mosquitoes to breed. Mosquito Dunks work to eliminate mosquitoes in standing water before they’re old enough to bite. Biological control with natural Bti (a bacteria) lasts for 30 days and is safe to use in drinking water.

2 – Say goodbye to existing flies
Sometimes no matter how hard you try, there’s no way to stop 100% of summer pests at the source. So if you have some buggers who’ve managed to slip through your nets, don’t bug out! The EZ Trap Fly Trap and Fly Stik are safe, insecticide-free solutions that help you capture or ward off any existing flies. They can be used indoors and outdoors, so you can beat the bugs no matter where they are!

3 – Give your horse a natural no-fly zone
Help keep flies from biting and breeding. SmartBug-Off ® provides the natural insect repellents garlic, brewers yeast, and apple cider vinegar, along with diatomaceous earth, a substance made from crushed fossils that makes manure inhospitable to fly larvae. In addition, SmartBug-Off is also equipped with omega 3 fatty acids and MSM to support a normal inflammatory response, for healthy skin.

Horses without the SmartBug-Off have about twice as many flies on their face/eye area as the two with the supplement.

4 – Wipe out the fly population at your barn
When fed to all horses on the property, SimpliFly® or Solitude IGR help prevent the development of flies in the manure of treated horses. Each contains an active ingredient that breaks the fly life cycle by preventing larvae from forming exoskeletons, resulting in their death.

5 – The all-natural way to keep flies off your property
Fly Predators are tiny bugs you’ll love! The natural enemy of flies, these insects never bother humans or animals, and they feed on fly larvae. Sprinkle them around the manure areas on your farm and they’ll go to work controlling the fly population. You won’t see them, but you will see up to a 94% reduction in fly population! Fly Predators work best when released monthly throughout the summer, so we make ordering easy with automatic monthly shipping!

  1. Lori says:

    You didn’t include pasture management. Regular dragging of pastures and turning your manure pile to help break it down and dry it out.

  2. I thought your Smart BugOff contained Diatomaceous earth to help break up the life cycle of flies, too by making the manure less friendly for breeding flies?

Apparently I've been obsessed with horses since I was born, and I used to beg for pony rides on a regular basis. I started showing in 4-H, progressed to equitation and jumpers in high school and rode on the IHSA team in college where I also discovered the joys...
