Shake well before each use. Ready to use, no mixing necessary. Hold container upright and spray as directed. This product may be applied directly with either a soft cloth or fine mist spray.

Initial Treatment: Apply 1 to 2 ounces daily for 2 to 3 days. As infestation subsides, repeat treatment every 7 to 14 days or as prescribed by a veterinarian. Also re-apply every time animal is washed or exposed to rain.

Use As Spray: Apply to face, legs, flanks, top line and other body areas commonly attacked by flies. Do not wet horse's skin or exceed two ounces per application.

Use As Wipe-On: Brush animal to remove excess dirt or dust. Moisten but do not wet to the point of dripping a soft cloth and rub over the hair. It is best to apply by rubbing against the hair growth. Avoid using an excessive amount on your horses. Do not wet skin.

Absorbine Bug Block Insecticide & Repellent, 40 fl. oz. is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from WORKS FOR OUR GOAT PENS We live in the Northwest Georgia Mountains and use this for our goats . I spray every other day or so in their goat pens . It helps keep flies and other insects away. I can see a big difference . It is difficult for me to spray on the goats , but I do get a little on them . It has a pleasant odor and goats do not mind it all. The only complaint I have is that the spray does not release all that is in the bottle. I have to empty what is left into a new bottle .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Above average Flies are horrible right now on my 3 horses. Tried this for the first time. Flies immediately leave, including the green biting ones. Lasts a few hours, then have to re spray. I still use fly masks on them in the pasture. Has a ceadar smell, horses dont seem to mind.

Can this Spray be used on dogs/cats?

Asked by: CharlieQuimby
Hi Charlie, Bug Block Insecticide & Repellent can be used on dogs to kill and repel fleas, ticks and lice. However, it can never be used on cats. Since cats clean themselves everyday, an insecticide like this would cause them immediate health issues. Thanks for your question!

Can you use this on a dog to fight mange

Asked by: Hekhdb134
Thank you for your question. This product is not suitable to fight mange, and we caution against applying any insecticide to a dog suffering from mange. There are several treatment paths your vet might choose from depending on the specific dog for the best outcome.

Can this be used on chickens

Asked by: Sjc623
BugBlock is not for chickens, but we do have Absorbine's Flys-X Ready To Use Insecticide at Tractor Supply Co. which is approved for controlling poultry lice and exposed stages of Darkling beetles on chickens. Flys-X comes in a grey bottle with animals on the front, your chicken directions are on the back of the bottle. Thanks!
