Barrier Enhanced Formula Fly Repellent repels all flying insects especially Midge. Although both of our fly repellent formulations can be applied to sore and exposed areas to help soothe and calm irritation and help stop the need to rub, the Enhanced Formula Fly Repellent is specifically designed to calm and soothe the effects of midge bites, having even more ingredients known for their antiseptic properties.
Horse Flies : This formulation is powerful enough to deter the largest of flying insects. Horse flies are hated by both people and horses, because they really hurt when they bite. They have a knife-like mouthpiece that breaks through the skin by slashing it, in order that they can then feed of the blood. The skin is left with raised, sore and very irritating lumps. This formulation will soothe and help stop the need to rub.
Midge Bite (Sweet Itch): Sweet Itch is caused by an allergic reaction to the saliva of the biting midge. This causes intense irritation and normally affects the mane, tail, chest and belly. Although moist, wooded areas attract midge, some animals are more prone to the effects of midge bite than others and it normally stays with them for life, so it is very important to use a good repellent that keeps the midge at bay and calms the effects of midge bites, ensuring that your horse or pony is kept a comfortable as possible.
Broken skin: Animals that continuously rub will lose hair and eventually the skin becomes broken and sore. Enhanced Formula Fly Repellent is a gentle and kind formulation and can be applied directly to broken areas to soothe soreness and help restore lost hair.
Raw & sore areas: No need to worry about application to exposed and sore areas, Enhanced Formula is kind and gentle enough to apply directly to areas which have been rubbed raw. It stops the urge to rub almost instantly and gets to work and soothing affected areas.
Sensitivety: Very rarely, horses and ponies can suffer an allergic reaction to natural or synthetic products. If you suspect your horse suffers from allergies or has a very sensitive skin, it is always advisable to carry out a small skin test before use.
