Summer pests can spoil an otherwise perfect time of the year. No-Fly Zone repels most flying insects, including midges, mosquitoes, gnats, warble flies, horse flies, ticks, stable flies and sand flies.
Apply to exposed areas when outdoors in areas vulnerable to biting insects. Pay particular attention to manes, the base of the tail and around the ears (do not spray directly into the ears). For the face it is usually better to spray onto your hand and apply gently with fingers.
Avoid all contact with eyes and inside of the nose.
- Mosquitoes thrive in warm, damp conditions, as well as by areas of standing water. Be extra vigilant for mosquitoes at dawn and dusk.
- Midges tend to make an appearance on damp and cloudy summer days. They are big fans of wet ground.
- Stable flies and horse flies are prevalent across the world, particularly around livestock and equine livery yards. They tend to prefer the outside environment to indoors.
- Take extra care in wooded areas and dense undergrowth where ticks can thrive. Ticks can pass on Lyme Disease, symptoms of which can comprise a ‘bulls eye’ skin rash around the bite, and symptoms such as weakness, muscle pain, fever and exhaustion.
- It is important to seek veterinary advice and/or treatment early if your horse has been bitten by a tick and develops any of these symptoms.

GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe), however, this repellent should NOT be used on pregnant or lactating mares. Do not use on or around sarcoids. Always carry out a patch test before use. It is often helpful to allow the horse to sniff the spray before application. If the horse reacts badly it may find the spray too strong. It can be watered down with clean water.
