How To Make A Safe, Non Toxic and Effective Fly and Mosquito Repellent or Spray
Summertime can be a very uncomfortable time for your horse and other outside pets.All different types of flies and mosquitoes can be brutal.Horses spend all day and night trying to get rid of the flies and mosquitoes.Do your animals a favor and help them out with some type of insect repellent.
I manage a horse ranch with over 30 horses.I spray each horse everyday with a repellent.You can buy fly spray that works but it can get very expensive and you can only use it on a limited basis because it can be toxic if used too often.
There are several home remedies available, Avon Skin So Soft,Citronella oil and water, etc.Skin So Soft and water is very oily and Citronella oil can be hard to find.
I personally use white vinegar and water.It works extremely well, inexpensive and is non toxic.You can use as much as you like.I have even used it on myself.Like I said it works great.The only problem I found is that it may make your horse smell like a tossed salad but they will have some relief.
To make the vinegar and water spray just use a 50/50 mixture with a tablespoon of dish-washing liquid mixed in to help the mixture stay on your animals longer.If the insects are really bad you can use more vinegar than water.This is a completely safe and inexpensive way to repel the pests from your animals.
