[RC] Garlic - Sunset Farm

Hello, We have been using Garlic for two years now in the bug infested SE, we buy it from Sam's Club, the granulated version. We have noticed a huge reduction in all the flies, gnats and other horse harassing insects, so much so that we(the humans) take garlic, too. From personal experience it does help, still get the occasional mosquito bite, and the deer flies which just cropped out last week will still get on the horses ears but I think there is a huge benefit from the Italian smelling horses. We are feeding 40 odd head and the garlic from Sam's is the cheapest, I think we paid a total of 24 dollars for 6 pounds which lasts about 6 weeks.
Hope this helps, Lynn
Hope it dries out enough for the 100 milers to get all their mileage at the Biltmore this weekend
