Active Ingredient: Permethrin...45.0%
this does actually work really well. much better than expected. it lasts about 2-3 weeks and keeps the majority of bugs off your horse. you do need to use a body bug spray when the bugs are extra bad but otherwise this does a good job at keeping them fairly bug free
Fight Lyme Disease
I live in a region where Lyme disease is very prevalent and I've had almost all of the horses on my property contract Lyme when I wasn't using Equi-Spot routinely. Since I started using Equi-Spot, none of my horses have come up positive.
