Fantastic Product from SStack.com!

Fly Free Zone leg bands are the bomb! Let me tell you, my gelding apparently tastes like candy to the flies and they would leave his poor white legs all chewed up and bloody. I used fly spray, but it only worked for a little bit. I bought a set of these leg bands by Fly Free Zone (they make neck bands too) and bam! No more chewed up legs. They are basically a Velcro band that you attach around your horse's lower leg. They contain a sponge soaked in a mixture of Citronella oil and fly repellent. Now, they do dry up eventually, but I discovered that I could soak them with my fly spray and some Citronella essential oil every week or so and they work good as new! Schneider's also carries the collar, which is excellent for keeping those deerflies from buzzing their ears.

  1. Do they make human versions? Seems like a convenient product for keeping away mosquitoes, midges and horse flies.

  2. I got these for a very sensitive (to flies) mare. She had a horrid reaction to them, swelling directly where they were at on her legs, and then hair loss. I felt horrible that I didnt notice them sooner. Not to say that this will happen to any other horses. but my poor girl.
