Horse Insect Control Compare Products
Protect your horse from pesky and dangerous bugs
In some regards, insects are a horse's worst nightmare. Just one persistent mosquito buzzing around your horse's ears can create havoc in any stall, barn, or stable. Add a whole swarm of bugs, and who knows what your horse will do to escape. There have been reports of horses busting through fences and stall doors to get away from flying insects. Thankfully, however, relief is available in many forms. Equine insect control products run the gamut of topical sprays, powders, wipes, shampoos, ointments, or traps. Each is designed to eliminate and repel a variety of flying pests, from horse, horn, and stable flies, to mosquitoes, gnats, fleas, ticks, or lice. At their most basic, each prevents your horse from being bothered or bitten. But more importantly, each may also help prevent the spread of dangerous equine diseases, including West Nile Virus, equine encephalitis, Lyme disease, and other diseases communicable via insects.
