There are thousands of chemicals on the market today used in almost every product you use on a daily basis. You rub them into your skin, you feed them to your children, you drink them down and you breathe them. If there were a way to get the desired benefits from a natural fly control spray as achieved with a chemical-filled product, wouldn’t you try it? Recognizing that insects are a natural and vital part of keeping a balance in our ecosystem, has led to a more environment-friendly approach to fly control. Below are some of the benefits of flies, and why it is worth simply repelling them with natural ingredients, rather than killing with chemicals.
Here are Some of the Benefits that Flies Bring:
- Decompose carcass
- Pollination of flowering plants
- Feed on other unwanted pests
- Used in genetic studies
Essential oils have long been used for health care, beauty treatments, food additives, and their aromatic qualities. These oils are harvested from the seeds, bark, stems, roots, and flowers of plants. The essential oil compounds are what give plants their distinct, and often beautiful, scents, as well as playing a role in protecting them and aiding in the pollination process. There are many different essential oils found in the world today, each a pure and potent essence of its living source. Natural fly sprays containing these oils are effective and safe to use in your home and around your family, pets included.

- I really like your Fly Spray! I love the smell of the essential oils and what it does for my horse’s coat! ~ Candis
During the summer, I don’t leave my house without a bottle of No Natz. I keep a bottle in my car and one in my purse so I have it wherever I am. It’s amazing how quickly you’ll make friends when you’re with a group of people, plagued by gnats, flies, or mosquitoes, and you pull out a bottle of bug repellent. I love this spray because it contains some of my favorite oils, including: lavender, coconut, rosemary, and lemongrass.
If you have a horse, Flicks Essential Oil Spray is a great option, as it contains these favorite essential oils: eucalyptus, lemongrass, peppermint, and cedarwood. It also has lanolin, which conditions the coat and leaves it with a healthy sheen.
If you live in a rainy part of the country, Fly Armor is a very effective alternative to fly sprays, as the essential oils won’t wash off. The Fly Armor inserts will stay activated and effective for about 4 weeks. You can easily attach them to your horse’s tack.
