    have you tried mixing different fly sprays with your EO fly spray?
    like try the ecovet with your essential oils or whatever spray you have

    I recently purchased a small bottle of EcoVet and....wow. I've never seen my horses so upset by a fly spray...ever. There was sneezing and coughing and head shaking all over the place!! At first I thought it was just 'new' but the next time I went to spray them (the net day) each of the horses, no kidding, did everything they could to avoid that bottle getting anywhere near them!

    Something interesting I saw at a horse show in Rapid City. My Pyranha wasn't working that well even though I drenched two flies with it. But, the other day we got a bunch of flies, maybe thirty, in our house that went around our ceiling lights. So I got them to move from the kitchen to the laundry room and then used my Pyranha on them and they died almost immediately. So it appears the ones in barns have been adapting to the fly spray, but the ones that are in suburban neighborhoods have not.
