  • For an increased level of protection use Nettex Fly Repellent Shampoo weekly. This will coat the hair and help further prolong the effect of the Nettex Summer Fly Cream
  • Avoid applying Nettex Summer Fly Cream to the inside of the ear as when the horse sweats it may run into the ear causing discomfort.
  • Garlic can have natural insect deterrent properties when added to the feed and many horses enjoy its taste, so it can be a useful addition to your insect avoidance strategy. Nettex Garlic Granules are made from the finest pure garlic cloves.
  • Nettex Summer Fly Cream is safe to use on pregnant and lactating mares, avoiding application around teats.

Love the cream! Banner had so many flies on his face and just a small amount of the cream, they were all gone! I’ve had 2 tubs since maybe May 2019 and have only gone through 1/2 of 1. 100% recommend



We really wouldn't have been able to do it without your products. At the start of last week I posted a picture of our box of Nettex goodies going away with us to the RDA national championships at Hartpury, I just thought I would post an update of how the weekend went! Here's a picture of my sister and her pony, who came overall tack and turnout champions for the second year running in both seniors and juniors, using only Nettex products. We really wouldn't have been able to do it without your products, so Thankyou! #teamnettex #team_hawken



Emma trialed the Summer Fly Cream for her ardennes mare (Moomin). Moomin has a docked tail so struggles swatting the flys and often gets sweaty teats. The Fly Cream helped as Moomin used to bleed terribly from fly bites, now being fly free Moomin is much more content. I really rate this product as its really easy to apply and lasts up to a week.



I have used every spray and cream under the sun and every summer my horses have still been plagued with flys. T Untill now. This cream is fantastic. I live in Fance and we have some particulary stubborn mouche plat, evil crab like flies that infest under the docks of horses like bunch of grapes. They are a major irritant to the horses. I was in england and bought this cream from a tack shop. What can I see, it is FANTASTIC, no flies on the soft parts from 1st application and its so easy to use. I take care to apply in the evenings only to avoid any potential problems because of full sun. This means they dont get the midge attacks in the evenings either. When the weather gets hotter I will apply during the day in the shade of the stables if they need it, but so far in 30° of heat it is keeping the flies at bay with a single application in the evening. So nice to look under their docks and not see those evil mouche plat. My old boys are in for a summer of less flies stress.
