Bye Bye Insects The Best New Fly Spray

Spalding Labs has been controlling flies naturally for 43 years with Fly Predators. Our goal for our first Fly Spray was to create the best fly repellent, of any kind, for horses and people.

In the past, Essential Oils never kept up with synthetic Pyrethroid sprays in performance. With Bye Bye Insects we’ve met that ambitious goal.

As you can see from the chart below, Bye Bye Insects offers comparable, even superior, fly repellency compared to the most widely used fly sprays for horses. Note that Bye Bye Insects (Yellow) has comparable repellency to Farnam’s Tri-Tech, Absorbine’s UltraShield Red and Pyranha’s Spray & Wipe, three of the “high end” Pyrethroid based sprays.

Bye Bye Insects also performed far better than the other Essential Oils sprays like Absorbine’s Ultrashield Green or SmartPak’s OutSmart. These tests were for Biting Stable Flies which are harder to repel than House Flies. Chart data as of 10/20/18. Test protocol and full data can be viewed by clicking the links.

Smells Great
Besides great performance, Bye Bye Insects also smells and feels terrific. Pyrethroid fly sprays warn against use on human skin, and few people like the smell of them. By comparison, Bye Bye Insects has a pleasant scent and can be used on yourself, your family and your horses.

Bye Bye Insects active ingredients are primarily Essential Oils, including Geraniol, Rosemary, Citronella, Peppermint and Lemongrass. All ingredients meet EPA’s 25(b) Minimum Risk requirements and for Rosemary, Peppermint, Vanillin and Lemongrass, we use food grade quality.

Bye Bye Insects Is A Concentrate
You can adjust its performance to what you need. We expect many will find a 50% dilution will still provide sufficient repellency. After you use up your first quart spray bottle, don’t throw it away. Instead refill it from the 3 quart EZ refill pouch.

Our Refills Are Very Smart Buys
The ecological and stay fresh 3 quart pouch costs $44.95. That’s like buying 2 quarts and getting the third one free. Thus, each full-strength refilled quart is only $14.98. Diluted by half it’s just $7.49 per quart. That’s the lowest cost on the market, delivered, for far better performance than low-priced sprays.

Have We Made The Perfect Fly Spray?
Getting close, but not yet. One issue is a slight yellow staining on white and grey hair. If used lightly, the staining is minimal and wears off. Other than on white and grey hair, it’s not noticeable. We’re working to fix this for next year.

What Others Say

The smell was great and much better than using the chemical concoctions in other brands.

My husband and I went to the Caribbean on vacation. We had been before and knew how bad the mosquitoes were so I made up a 50% solution and used it every day. It worked better than any other insect repellent I have used there.
