WHY CHOOSE FLYAWAY?

Flies and other insects can be a major concern for horses and their owners. The most effective way to deal with fly related issues is to kill the existing insects and deter others from returning. This is best achieved by using FLYAWAY, an effective and easy to use product.

  • Kills flies and nuisance insects

    The active ingredients in FLYAWAY are highly effective insecticidal compounds. Permethrin is considered the most effective active registered to kill flies, more so than pyrethrin#, making FLYAWAY the serious fly solution.

    • Piperonyl butoxide and N octyl bicycloheptene dicarboximide when combined with permethrin act synergistically to prolong and intensify insecticidal activity#.
    • N octyl bicycloheptene dicarboximide acts as a synergist with DEET to increase the potency of DEET’s repellent activity#.
  • Repels flies and nuisance insects

    FLYAWAY provides effective repellent activity to deter insects from landing on or around animals.

    • Diethyltoluamide, more commonly known as DEET, is one of the most effective insect repellent compounds available.
    • N octyl bicycloheptene dicarboximide acts as a synergist with DEET to increase the potency of DEET’s repellent activity#.
  • Concentrated formula

    FLYAWAY is a concentrated formulation to provide greater coverage and protection. It has higher concentrations of ingredients than many competitor products.

  • Can be applied to horse’s surroundings

    To provide additional protection against fly worry as part of an integrated insect control program.

  • Extended activity

    Permethrin, DEET, N octyl bicycloheptene dicarboximide and piperonyl butoxide combined together display a synergistic action. This means that they have improved activity when used together, than a single ingredient used alone or in other combinations. This results in an improved and extended action in killing and deterring flies. Additionally, increasing the amount of FLYAWAY applied can increase the duration of action.

  • Aids in the prevention of Queensland itch

    Kills and repels midges and sandflies (Culicoides spp.) associated with Queensland Itch therefore reducing the hypersensitivity to bites that can result in nasty itching, causing hair loss and raw skin. Extended effect allows for longer periods of respite from sandfly worry.

    This gives the product a pleasant smell, making it more attractive to use than many insecticidal products. Lavender oil also has insecticidal and repellent properties.
