Not only are flies and other pests an annoying part of your horse care routine, but they can also pose health risk to your horses, pets, and livestock. Insects can carry harmful disease and seriously distress an animal sensitive to their bite. Developing an effective method of fly control is, therefore, another vital aspect of your barn management. To be truly effective, a pest control program should include protection of your individual animals, as well as your barn and pastures. The Cheshire Horse carries a broad selection for fly and insect control products to help you maintain control over pest infestation on any budget.
Managing flies and insects in your horses' barn and pasture is a good place to start in creating a healthier and more comfortable environment. Whether you're looking for a strong treatment, or a more natural remedy, The Cheshire Horse stocks a wide range of products to eliminate and repel pests from your barn and fields. Popular in-barn fly control methods are fly tape and fly traps. See our great selection from Bonide Revenge, StarBar, Rescue, and BugPellent. We also carry a selection of aerosol sprays repellents and Insect Dust, also a tick repellent, for use in the barn on in the paddock.
