[RC] Fly Spray - Flicks - Jim Holland

In last month's "John Lyons Perfect Horse" they had an article on fly
sprays. Tests on leading brands.  The "winner" was a "natural" product
called "Flicks". I'm always looking for something better to keep my guys
from "stomping flies", so I ordered some from State Line.

Took about two weeks...it was on backorder...but finally got it and gave
it a try. 

I'm really impressed. Most fly spray does not keep flies from "landing"
on the horse....it may discourage biting flies from staying there long
enough to bite, but most "stomping" is due to plain old house
flies...the horse doesn't know they don't bite, so is continually

Flicks works really well.  I sprayed the guys legs and ALL flies
immediately disappeared... and it lasts for a long time. It has one down
side, which is not really a down side unless you don't like peppermint. 
It smells STRONGLY of peppermint (probably contains peppermint oil) for
a long time.  To me, that's a positive....I love peppermint...and it
beats the heck out of the chemical smell of the other sprays. DON'T get
it in their eyes....

There is nothing on the bottle that says what is in it...only that it is

Try it....I love the stuff.....
