Re: [RC] Fly treatments? - April Allison

EquiSpot has never worked for us. Freedom works on mine. A little more expensive, but not much. Specially since the EquiSpot was just like I put nothing on. If you read the labels it looks like they are the same thing, but they are not. The base is formulated a little differently and although they read that they have the same percentage of active ingredients, the tubes vary in weight between brands.(content difference) Freedom puts more active ingredient on.
(not a chemist, but with lots of school in that area, and Daddy was a toxicologist and ran one of the state ag labs before he retired, learned more over the dinner table than I ever did in school. :o), Now if I can only get him to think horses are good for more than dog food.. sigh.....He is book smart but no horse sense)

Hi Karla,
I have a miniature horse here at the rescue.  I use Equi-Spot on all the horses due to ticks.  I use 1/3 - 1/2 a tube on the mini.  Just my personal experience.
I will tell you that I get acceptable control for 2 weeks - minimal control in week 3 and it is gone from there on.  If you get a heavy rain I think you can lose some of the product despite the fact that it is oil based.
