Would anyone that uses the Pyrahna Fly Spray System care to give a review? I boarded at a barn nearly a decade ago that had it (or at least something very similar), but I don't really recall anything specific. I seem to recall it working well. Then again, I didn't have anything to compare it to, as I started boarding there after it was installed.
The old owners of my barn used (and left for us) the Country Vet Fly Spray Systems in every stall. At best, I find them to be minimally effective, and I really think they aren't doing much of anything to help control the fly population in the barn. I'm seriously considering the Pyrahna system, so would love to hear anyone's experiences. We're looking at a DIY installation for 6 stalls, so installation tips would also be welcome.
I am doing as much as possible to keep the fly population down. Neighbors and I use fly predators, and I am also mixing cedar shavings in with my pine shavings. Luckily, none of my horses are sensitive to the cedar, and it seems to help a bit. Still, I think a good fly spray system would be most effective... so is the Pyrahna system worth it?
We just don't have much of a fly problem in the barn. I keep the doors of the barn closed on the sunny side (NE in the morning, SW after noon.) Add in the stall fans and you rarely see a fly in the barn. I use fly predators also. As an added benefit, it keeps the barn much, much cooler.
I'm guessing that wouldn't work for a busy barn, though.
