I am thinking ahead this year. For a horse that is overreactive to any sort of bug bites (mosquito, horse flies, etc.) I have primarily relied on barrier methods in the past (fly sheet, mask, etc.) I tried the "Bug Check" supplement last year, and found it to be wonderful to eliminate house (stable) flies, but totally ineffective on mosquitos and horse and deer flies. So I have been looking for something new to try and saw this. Has anyone tried it? If so, what did you think?
If a horse is really hypersensitive and miserable, it makes sense to try things that might help, I guess. But I always am suspicious of "proven" and "proprietary blend" used in the same sentence. I'd love so see some of their proof.
But that said, it may or may not be safe and if the "pro" outweighs the "con" it might be better than an itchy, miserable, hive-y horse.
Thankfully our no-see-um season is VERY brief and none of mine is terribly sensitive. Mostly the ears are attacked, not so much tummies and elsewhere, and so all of mine wear masks with ears during that part of May.
