    Default Best Spot On Repellent for Flies/Ticks?

    Sorry if this was discussed before but I couldn't find anything in search.

    Looking for recommendations for spot on fly and tick repellent. What worked, what was a waste of money? I'm hoping to find something that will keep the ticks from biting, not just kill them once they are on, since we have some tick borne diseases in the area I'm moving to, and the bugs are horrendous there (suptropical climate similar to Florida). Anything that works on chiggers? Anybody had their horse have a bad reaction to one?

    Also wondering if anybody has tried these products?

    They sound too good to be true, and the few reviews I've found kind of sound like they were written by somebody from the company. I love the idea and would love to hear if they've worked or not for anybody. Thanks!

    Freedom 45. I went riding last Friday, and my friend's horse had dozens of seed ticks, and as far as I can tell, my mare has none.
