PREVENTING FOREST FLIES FROM LANDING ON THE HORSE
They drive them crazy
Forest flies (Hippobosques) have a way of driving our horses crazy!
Their adherence to the coat can send horses into states of uncontrolled hysteria, making them dangerous to us as well as to themselves.
They are relatively resistant to repellents. Even if they are uncomfortable, they are generally not sufficient.
Hematophagous, their bite is very painful.
Mechanical protection remains the most reliable method of protection against forest flies.
As they systematically settle on very specific areas (stomach, anus, thighs), the application of a balm like NATJELY durable prevents them from settling, or at least from biting.
When they come into contact with it, they take flight again, aware of the risk of entanglement and suffocation.
To increase the effect of NATJELY by adding a repellent action, add a few drops of insect-repellent, non-photosensitizing essential oils (avoid citrus).
Another option is NATFLY! Mix DERFLY with NATJELY (less than a quarter of derfly in the total), and you'll obtain a highly effective semi-homemade preparation for combining the 2 effects.
