Reduce Risk of Fly-Transmitted Diseases
Posted By: azhorsebreeder, az (BENSON, AZ) Jul 17, 2010

When our county in southeast AZ was hit by an outbreak of Vesicular Stomatitis, our vet recommended to feed a product containing Diatomaceous Earth, in addition to our already elaborate fly control protocol (Shoofly mister system in barn and mare motel, predator wasps in manure, mosquito fish in pond and drinkers). We decided to try Buggzo, and have noticed a significant reduction in fly numbers, both in irrigated pastures and in the barn/mare motel. We started out with 2 oz for 1 month, then reduced to 1 oz maintenance. During monsoon season we might double the dose again to increase protection and reduce risk of fly-transmitted diseases, like VS. We have not experienced a reduction in gnats, which means that fly masks are still necessary. It took only about three days until also the most finicky mare accepted the strong (garlic) flavor. We feed it to horses of all ages, including pregnant mares.

Peace at Last!
Posted By: Rider61 (NEWTON, NJ) Jun 24, 2010

With six horses on a wooded pasture, dairy farms surrounding us, deer and other buggy wildlife abounding, and a water source not far away, we're abuzz with bugs from about April to October. I've tried daily fly spraying, spot-on treatments, and other feed-throughs, but by far Buggzo is the leader of the pack. [Note: It does not deter face flies, so a fly mask is in order for horses on turnout.] I was delighted to find as I stood in a cloud of flies determined to get their pound of flesh from me if the horses wouldn't give it up, that not one fly had landed for more than a heartbeat on any of my herd and there was not a bite mark to be seen. Ticks have been few and far between on horses that normally require daily tick inspections and removals. The barn is generally pretty fly-free even without Buggzo as fans run when the horses are stalled, but I've noticed that the death toll in the fly traps near the water troughs has diminished since opening day of fly season, suggesting fewer flies overall. I start feeding Buggzo in March so the garlic has ample time to build up in their bodies and the manure is rich with the product by the time fly season starts. This seems to be the best plan. Even riding is more pleasant as the horses can focus on me rather than their fly-borne misery.
