Horse owners have the upper hand on insects this season thanks to Fly Armor™ insect repellent gear and “the invisible shield of tranquility” it provides to protect horses, dogs and people against flies, mosquitoes, gnats, ticks, and no-see-ums. The revolutionary new fly repellent system is also receiving rave reviews because it uses all-natural ingredients that are 100% free from toxic chemicals. Fly Armor is not sprayed or the horse or in the stable area. The Fly Armor inserts are infused with the proprietary blend of essential oils and then inserted into Fly Armor gear, which is designed to attach to halters, bridles, rider’s helmets, manes and tails.

“We are excited about the positive reaction from the equestrian community. Riders, owners and farm managers have embraced our revolutionary fly system” said Charlie O’Hara, Director of Development at Fly Armor, “We hear from horse owners everyday who are so pleased to be able to control flys without repeatedly spraying chemicals directly on to their horses. The unique component of the Fly Armor brand is the scented, eco-friendly inserts that are infused with a proprietary blend of essential oils that insects cannot tolerate,” O’Hara explains.
The Fly Armor replaceable inserts can easily be attached wherever needed, from halters, bridles, rider’s helmets and dog collars to manes, tails and more. They can also be used in stall doors and horse trailers. Riders can also enjoy a pest free ride with Fly Armor Helmet Bands that attach to their headgear. The Fly Armor insect repellent inserts are designed to last approximately four weeks, depending on the weather conditions. Dr. Larry Caudill, DVM, from Lexington, Kentucky said, “The inserts hold up comfortably for a month, which is remarkable.” The inserts retail for about $6.99 for a pair. The Fly Armor gear that holds the inserts are reusable and range in price from $14.00 to $29.00, about the cost of a single bottle of fly spray! To date, Fly Armor offers ten different insert band styles and each is sold as a kit that includes two or four inserts. So along with being eco-friendly, Fly Armor is a very cost effective approach to fly control.
O’Hara explains, “In hot temperatures, 90 to100 degrees, when bugs are most prevalent, Fly Armor protects an area of approximately six to seven feet in diameter. That’s what we call the invisible shield of tranquility. Fly Armor is safe, effective, comfortable and affordable and we are proud to bring the innovative approach to fly control to the market place.”
