Yes...they work!

I also bought this product on a whim. I always hated seeing my Standardbred stomp getting the flies off. I always take them off when he gets hosed off or bathed. then back on. They work for approx. 6 weeks. They are definately worth it!

Works Great!!!

I bought these bands on a whim. My horse was so agitated and nervous about all the flies. He didn't mind the bands being snapped onto his legs and has not tried to remove them. The difference in my horse is amazing. He is calm, the flies are leaving him alone (on his legs anyway), and he's a much happier animal, which makes me a happier owner. I noticed that when I open the barn in the morning that the citronella smell is strong and the barn doesn't seem to have too many flies in it either. I think this is a wonderful product and will never be without it again.

Fly bands
Posted By: K. WENTZ (CHESAPEAKE, VA) May 8, 2007

"Yeah Right" was the comments I heard from people as I was attaching the fly bands to the legs of my mule, Diane . "You know that stuff does not work, you have just wasted your money." I continued snapping the fly bands on my mule, ignoring their comments.When I pulled out the fly collar and snapped it on Diane's neck, laughter from my captive audience filled the air. As I walked Diane out to the pasture I endured comments, laughter, and ridicule. I prayed, "Oh Lord, please let these things work!" I turned Diane out in the pasture with the other horses. It was hot that day, flies were everywhere.....the horses in the pasture were miserable, being tormented by the flies. Some of the horses were even bucking trying to get the flies off. There stood Diane, contently grazing....not even a swish from her long tail to ward off a fly. I could see the people that ridiculed me looking out into the pasture, watching the their horses dancing the fly dance. I had to chuckle to myself, thinking, who is the idiot now? HUH? One horse owner came to me later and quietly asked, "so where did you get those fly bands and collar?" I looked her square in the face and said, "Ya know, I am to stupid to recall." However, before I left the barn, I did leave your catalog on the message board with a note....THIS PRODUCT DOES WORK AND IT IS THE BEST!!!! Thank you again for such a great product!

Worked Great

Leg bands kept biting flies off burro's legs, the best his legs have looked in years. Be aware - he was able to pull 2 off initially but I found them and reattached to his legs and he left them on all summer. The velcro worked very well, I will be using them again on him this year.

Very good but not excellent

I've used these on a very sensitive skinned saddlebred. They work quite well. Don't keep everything off his legs, but help allot -- he's now pestered less than any other horse in the herd. I'm sure they're working because he broke one, and that leg is now getting eaten alive again on that leg. One band only lasted about 4 weeks before he broke it. The other 3 still seem pretty durable, and may make the 2 months. They are still damp and are still clearly working. I think it may depend on the types of flies, and also on the problem at hand. Miata is, for whatever reason, disturbed by flies so very much more than any other horse we have...and for him these have been a godsend, far better than the fly boots we were using.
