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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inappropriate placement - Insecticide & Bee Supply I found this on the page with beekeeping supplies. I would seem that that would not be good placement for the ad since some people might think that since it is on the bee supplies page it could be used with bees. Very bad idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The good stuff. This is one of my favorite fly sprays it works and it has a good scent. I live in the south and the bugs are torturous, so I need something to give my horses relief. Bug block works well and lasts a long time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flies laughed at it I usually purchase Endure but thought I'd give the Bug Block a try. I've had good results with other Absorbine products and the Bug Block was on sale at TSC. The flies basically laughed at it. I had to saturate my colts legs to get them to finally stop landing on him, and a couple still did. Very poor performance for this fly spray.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product works about average I bought this last summer and used it on my barrel horses and it worked about normal. Smells kinda like tea, but it does knock some flys off into the floor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for some horses! Purchased this 2 weeks ago. Works good for one horse, however the other one got hives and scabby itchy skin after 3 days. Not sure why the reaction! But won't purchase again. I need something both horses can use without a problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product This is one of the best fly spray repellents I have found. Works great on my horses!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A really good insect repellant. This product does a great job of keeping bugs away. I use it on muggy days to keep my horses comfortable bug-free. It's the only product I trust to spray over bandaged areas of scrapes my horse acquired in the field to keep the flies off them because it does a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A way to save your money!! It drove me crazy seeing nasty bugs on my horses, and it didn't matter how much I would spray the horses these bugs would not stop. I herd from a friend about this amazing product called "Bug Block", so I bought a bottle. Its been 4 years now and my horses have not had a fly on them since. Bug Block saves you money and smells great (what a save).

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!
