EQUICARE® FLYSECT® CITRONELLA SPRAY with Lanolin has been especially developed for use on horses. It provides a coating against flies while imparting a high sheen to the hair when brushed out. One to two ounces per head per day gives adequate protection. Apply by soft cloth.

USE AS A WIPE ON: First brush the animal to remove excess dirt and dust. Moisten (but do not wet to the point of dripping) soft cloth and rub over the hair. It is best to apply by rubbing against the hair growth. Give special attention to the legs, shoulders, shanks, neck and facial areas where flies most often are seen. Only light application is required. Avoid using an excessive amount on your horses. Do not wet skin. Do not allow product to contact animal’s eyes, nose, mouth, or sores during application. After application, brush out thoroughly to bring out bright sheen on the coat. Repeat daily or at intervals needed to give adequate protection.

USE AS A SPACE SPRAY: May be applied as fine mist spray to stable area and over and around stabled horses for fast paralysis and kill of flies. Direct spray at an upward angle, distributing it uniformly throughout the entire area at a rate of 2 fluid ounces per 1,000 cubic feet (10 ft x 10 ft x 10 ft).
