Product Summary:

War Paint®requires very small amounts to kill and repel flies. Small amounts of War Paint are placed on the horse only where flies tend to congregate.

War Paint, when applied to the horse, attaches to the hair of the horse and slowly releases the insecticide over a period of weeks. Full body fly control does not usually occur until 1 to 2 days after the application. The reason for this is it takes awhile for the formulation to release the insecticide onto the horse's hair.

Because War Paint is not only an insecticide, but also an effective repellent, you will notice that in the case of face fly activity, the repellent activity of the product will be apparent within hours if not immediately after application.

After a period of one to two weeks, as the insecticide is released onto the horse's hair, you will find that War Paint becomes powdery and will fall off the horse's hair leaving no adverse effects on the horse's appearance.

Directions For Use:

Full Body Fly Control:
Adult Horses:
For the treatment of pastured horses, it is recommended that a full application of War Paint be applied as a single treatment. This should provide adequate fly control for approximately one week on pastured horses.

Precautions For Use:
Do not apply to the hair of a wet animal since the product will not adhere to moist surfaces. War Paint, once applied to the hair of the horse, cannot be wiped off. Therefore, it should not be applied within 1 to 2 weeks of an anticipated show even in which the presence of small amounts of War Paint on the horse's hair would have an adverse effect on the horse's appearance. As with any product, certain horses may be sensitive to one of the ingredients in War Paint and develop some local irritation. If irritation occurs, discontinue use. If irritation persists, consult your veterinarian.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good fly control for faces We've used this product on our three horses at pasture for years. We don't do the full body coverage, just the face, so I can't speak to how effective it is anywhere else. For keeping flies off of faces though, it's been awesome. There's no fussing, just one swipe under each eye and they're good to go for weeks. Never had any problems of hair falling out, flies just sticking to the paste, etc. in the four summers we've used it. If only using on the face it lasts a pretty long time too. We've gotten many applications out of one tube. love it! March 27, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works Great!! Love this product. Applies quickly and easily and no freakout scenes from skittish horses. We have a huge fly problem in our area of Oregon. I have never had flies attract to it like negative posting here. If you can see white globs a few minutes after applying, you are using too much. It does not take much, just a skim. Love this product. One container lasted me all summer on 4 horses but again, I don't overuse it. You don't need to "glob" it on. A light streak on the face below the eyes and maybe above the nostrils, on the chest and on each front leg, then and I put a bit at the rump just at the base of the tail and voila, No flies. Do keep from eyes like also posted. Had one that I got a bit too close and his eye swelled for a couple of days but no permanent damage (it may have been a bee sting but I am thinking it was the War Paint). July 11, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by bad This stuff is probably the worst product I've used. It's sticky, gooey and does not go on easily. I was told by a lot of people this was great stuff...but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. June 9, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by IT WORKS! Although expensive for the limited quantity, this works! With 4 mules and a mammoth, there is only enough for 1 application on all 5 then it is gone. No need to touch the sticky goo, just swipe it on. It sticks, it stays and it is by far the best as it works for a long time. As it ages it gets powdery and can be easily brushed out before a new application in 7-10 days. Finally something that works- just dont get it where it can end up in the eyes. Great stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by This stuff works!! I have a horse who is "sweet" - flies & anything else that bites love this guy. When we lived in Florida, I discovered this product - it really worked for him. It doesn't wash off easily & that's good because it rains daily in Florida. I now live in Colorado & he doesn't need it anymore - he does ok with a fly mask and a good fly spray - here in Colorado our fly problem seems minor. However, I have a friend who has a horse who is not only "sweet" but allergic to flies, etc. She has welts all over her body and is now on an antihistamine. My friend has resisted trying this product up to now. No more - I'm hoping it will work as well for her horse as it did for mine. It isn't pretty - your horse will have big yellowish-white streaks on him/her - but is that worse than huge welts and sores and rubbed areas? August 22, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It We run a breeding farm, and between recipient mares and foals the fly masks don't last too long so we use war paint. We apply it once a week to the face, and give it a day to start working. Works awesome for face flies. We use it all summer long, every summer, on all the horses!! July 14, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by bEST STUFF FOR EARS I have been using this product for 8-9 yrs. just on my horses ears. It is goopy but works 100% for flys and gnats. I love it and recommend it to all my friends. it is worth the price. July 12, 2010
Rated 1 out of 5 by Fly glue not repellant! I bought this for one of my horses that is very scred of fly spray since a neighborhood kids was spraying him with hairspray and abusing him. This stuff is useless. It is more like a glue than a repellant. It tells you where you are supposed to put it. You cannot put more than 12 grams on your horse. However, it tells you where you are supposed to put it. It is not applied all over your horse. The flies landed right on it this stuff. They did die eventually because they were stuck to it. My horse had flies hanging all over this stuff. It attracted them even more I think. Flies were eating him up. It is nasty disgusting mess on your horse. It is a total waste of money. I will stick to applying the liquid spray with a cloth. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS! May 17, 2010

It is the best fly replent that I have used on my horses. You do not need a ton of it and after a few treatments I only need to use it about once a month. Some of my horses do not like spray so this helps and it lasts longer than spray even after raining
