Product Summary:

Farnam Equi-Spot

Is your horse difficult to spray? Farnam Equi-Spot is perfect for those horses and others that are not touched on a daily basis. It kills and repels house flies, stable flies, face flies, horn flies, eye gnats, and ticks on horses, and aids in the control of horse flies, deer flies, mosquitoes, and black flies for up to two weeks. It's waterproof so the rain won’t wash it off, and economical to use as added protection in addition to fly spray.

Note: Use only on horses more than 12 weeks (three months) of age. For best results, follow the directions exactly for two-week coverage.

Features:

  • Kills and repels ticks that may transmit lyme disease
  • Kills and repels stable and face flies that may cause summer sores
  • Fights mosquitoes that may transmit West Nile Virus
  • Weatherproof, won't sweat off
  • Ideal for pastured horses
  • Protects for up to 14 days

Using for Ticks, 11/25/2012

Linda from Mission Viejo, CA

I am using this for ticks, I looked at the reviews and most people said this was useless for flies but great for ticks .. Since I started using this it has helped so much. One of my horses in last 3 weeks only got one tick, the other 4 ticks .. compared to when I wasnt using this they had ticks all over them all the time when tick season kicked up here .. Buying more and keeping this on this all winter and spring ..

Equi-Spot really works!, 3/13/2012

Maureen from Queen Creek, AZ

My horse has had great results with this product. I always start seeing problems with gnats at the beginning of the fly season. My horse would have spots where biting flys left bloody sores all over her legs, face, neck, and underbelly. Last year I witnessed a remarkable change, the biting was reduced so that I no longer had to treat with anti-histamines (benadryl) to relieve itching.

Undecided, 8/15/2011

Coco from Oshkosh, WI

I can't really tell if this is working or not. My horse still seems very bothered by gnats, mosquitoes and deer flies. My vet recommended that I keep using it anyway to help protect from ticks. My horse does seem very itchy, but I'm not sure if it's due to the product or due to the insect bites!

Disappointed!, 7/3/2011

jstabenow from Olive Branch, MS

I bought this product for my 3 horses in the hopes of reducing the need for spraying every 3 days or so - didn't work as planned! The product is difficult to apply - you really need a syringe to accurately measure the amount of product you are applying to each area, and it is not supplied. I still needed to spray my horses every 4 days or so even after applying this product. I will NOT purchase again! Save your money and buy some good fly spray!

I bought this for my horses in KY and did not work. Put it on my mare and by that evening the horse flies were eating her up.

A little disappointed., 9/7/2010

Pauline from

There were so many good reviews for this product, I really had high hopes for it. Unfortunately, it didn't work as well for either of my horses. It really didn't seem to make much of a difference at all.

Best fly relief ever, 7/6/2010

Paula from

My babies would not come out of their shed in summer until I started using this product, it is easier to apply than sprays and so effective, flies won't even light until the month is almost over! Love it (and my babies do too!)

Great for pasture horses!, 5/17/2010

Tressa Scott from

This is great to keep the flies off the horses in the pasture! I still use a spray when I go out on rides in the major fly season but this still is a great buy for just keeping the every day flys and ticks off my horses.

Awesome for flies!!, 6/13/2009

Amy from Elverta, CA

At first when I heard about the equi spot, I was skeptical. However after reading the reviews on the site I thought I might as well try it. I just receieved it yesterday and put it on my 3 horses. It works wonderfully!! I cant believe that they have no more flies landing on them! Before using this product, they had flies all over the muzzles and legs, and now there is no more flies! Its a miracle, especially for my horse that is so sensitive to flies. If you are thinking about getting this product, please do as it works great and is very cheap!!

Amazing!, 5/9/2009

Cindi from Aldie, VA

Flies and ticks are a serious seasonal problem here in Northern Virginia, with ticks often causes cases of Lyme disease. After nursing my gelding through Lyme 2 season ago, I was determined to prevent it from occurring again. EquiSpot did the trick! After using so many other products, I found that EquiSpot is easy to use, effective, and offers instant relief to my boy. I wholeheartedly endorse it!

Great for ticks, 5/2/2009

Kelli from OK

I found this to be extrememly effective for ticks, but not very effective against flys or mosquitos. With that being said. Ive reduced my dose to 1 tube for 2 to 3 horses for a 2 week period.

Top Notch, 2/12/2008

Mona from Blue, AZ

We have a small guest ranch and are always hunting products that work good, save time and are affordable. Equispot qualifies on all counts. It seems high priced until you compare the cost of fly spray that has to be applied once to three times a day to accomplish the same results. Weve tried a lot of things and this is definitely the best in our opinion.

Equi Spot best yet, 9/4/2007

Lynn from albuquerque, nm

My morgan rips out her mane and tail during fly season nothing worked until this year, when we discovered equispot. She has her full mane, tail AND doesnt stomp or otherwise show any discomfort. Not a fly on her. We are VERY pleased with the results and it is easy to use, no spray bottles and battles.
