Shield Pour-On Fly Repellent for Horses

Notify Me When Available
Shield is a pour-on fly repellent for horses and is the only pour-on fly repellent for horses available. It aids in the control of synthetic pyrethroid susceptible nuisance flies and biting insects and aids in the control of Queensland itch in horses.

Features of Shield:
  • Quick and easy to apply.
  • Cheaper per application than spray and wipes.
  • 250mL treats 1875kg of body weight (Approx 6 horses). 
  • 1L treats 7500kg of body weight (approx 24 horses).

Treatment as an aid in the control of nuisance flies should be applied every 6 weeks, or as required depending on insect pressure. The efficacy of SHIELD can be influenced by rain and activities such as brushing, washing, rugging, heavy riding, etc. For best results, allow 12-24 hours for SHIELD to dry before exposing the horse to these activities.

Directions for Use:

Dose per Bodyweight:

Body Weight: mL

< 100kg: 10mL
100kg - 200kg: 20mL 
200kg - 300kg: 30mL 
> 300kg: 40mL 

Apply the measured dose along the backline, ensuring that the mane & rump are treated. Take care to avoid eye contact.

Apply Shield during the cooler part of the day, preferably in the shade.

Skin reactions may occur if Shield is applied during hot weather.

Assess the sensitivity of a horse's skin to Shield by applying a small stripe of Shield (10 - 15cm long) at the base of the horses's neck and observe the area for 3 days.
If no reaction occurs, it is safe to apply Shield at the recommended dose rate.

I have found Shield pour on to be an effective and easy to use fly and other insect repellent. I do find that I need to give my horses legs a little more attention to keep the insect away from that area. Overall, though, a very useful product.
