Help say goodbye to flies, thanks to Nettex

While the warmer weather means longer periods in the saddle and more daylight hours to spend with your equine friends, horses have to cope with the irritating arrival of flies and other pesky biting insects. So make this summer a more pleasant one for your horses and ponies by stocking up with Nettex’s Fly Range. This extensive range is designed to offer a complete fly regime. With advanced formulations covering you for every eventuality.

Nettex Fly Repellent Advanced is an extra strength spray which offers longer lasting repellency. It is particularly useful for horses and ponies that are kept near ponds, streams and waterways, where flying pest populations are much higher. This D.E.E.T based high strength formula contains added moisturisers and conditioners, which may help to reduce evaporation and may also help to control the release of the active ingredients.

For the more sensitive skinned horses and ponies, we recommend Nettex Fly Repellent Standard This D.E.E.T based spray also contains added moisturisers and conditioners.

A truly practical choice this season is the D.E.E.T based Nettex Fly Repellent Wipes, which are perfect for horses and ponies that object to being sprayed. They are also perfect for carrying in the lorry for use when you are out and about. With an open and close lid, you can use as many as you need and then store the rest away knowing that they will stay fresh and moist ready for next time.

Another option for equines that don’t like sprays is Nettex Summer Fly Cream. This D.E.E.T based cream is soft and gentle on the skin and is easily applied with a sponge or cloth. It contains skin moisturisers that help to keep skin soft and supple and prevent it from drying out. In addition, this practical product contains lanolin and glycerine which helps to provide a barrier against adverse weather.

The Nettex Fly Control Range is a range you can trust and your horses and ponies will love you for choosing this range, helping them to enjoy time spent in the field without irritation.

Patch test 48 hours prior to application if you have not used a D.E.E.T based product before or if horse is sensitive skinned.

Avoid contact with broken or irritated skin. Not recommended to use under saddles, fly rugs or fly masks as may cause irritation.
