I've been using Shoo Fly for at last 4 or 5 years now. We have horses,
donkeys, and goats primarily, but also other farm animals that don't
require fly spray. I did an experiment this year - used Bronco on the
legs of the horses and donkeys, and Shoo Fly on the main body of the
equine. We live in Florida - where it is hot, muggy, and lots of biting
flies. We have several solar fly traps around the property, and we also
use Fly Eliminators to control the fly population. Since we must apply
fly spray every single day on the equine, I wanted to see how the
"killer" held up against the herbal. We have always hated apply the
strong fly "killer" on a daily basis and wanted to see how the goat's
Shoo Fly worked out. Several days in a row, I went out later in the
afternoon and did a fly check. There were just as many flies on the legs
of the equine as there were on the torso. Even Bronco wears off after a
bit when the horses are hot. In previous years, the equine would build
up a "film" from the daily application of the Bronco - their coats would
become kind of sticky and gross. This new approach is really quite a
good compromise. The biting flies on the legs are kept to a minimum with
the Bronco, and the Shoo Fly deterrent on the torso works really great.
Their coats are smooth and shiny - no messy build-up. As for the goats,
they have always been sprayed with the Shoo Fly each and every morning -
it is a real life saver for them. I wanted to send you a picture showing
how I mix up 6 or 7 gallons of the Shoo Fly at a time, using cleaned out
laundry detergent containers. These containers make it super easy to
dispense the mixture into my various sprayer bottles. Thanks for such a
wonderful product. I'm sending the photo separately just in case it gets
hung up in the server. Rebecca Winthrop, Trenton, FL
