Super affordable supplement that works!
Laura M on Apr 28, 2019
Still in the experimental stage of use, but if it does what it says, it's well worth the money.

flies have been awful this year...wanted to try something natural to help reduce the flies attacking my horse!
Alyson P on Jul 30, 2018
first time, liked reviews
Fernando B on Jul 22, 2018
Flies and mosquitos are BAD this year. Even though I use other methods, I added this to help my horse out.
Leah F on Jul 15, 2018

Hope to help senior horse with summer itch.
MELISSA T on Jun 8, 2018
Ticks are horrible nasty things! Nothing keeps all of them off of my horses, but when I give them BugLyte there are about 75% less ticks attaching than without it so it is worth it to me.
Tracy D on May 15, 2018
This will be our second summer using BugLyte. Pleased with the product last year.
Gail H on May 7, 2018
i've used it for a couple of years and really think it works along w/ an anti-fly program. of course i spray/wipe the horses and also use the metered fly sprayer from country-vet in the barn.
karen r on Mar 8, 2018
Just imported a horse from Europe to Costa Rica, great supplement to keep them bug-free!
PKG 007 P on Mar 8, 2018
fly season is coming.
PAULA J on Feb 16, 2018
it works
M O on Feb 13, 2018
Keeps flies away. no more welts from fly bites
Debra A on Feb 12, 2018
Odor-ease works on reducing poop smell, fewer flies. My sensitive palomino used to react and have swollen bug bites for 3plus days, with BugLyte he's less tasty (fewer bites) and swelling only lasts 1 day. Even picky Arab eats it sprinkled on feed. I've tried similar, like this best because of including both brewer's yeast and diatomaceous earth. Great bang for your buck.
Janet Smith J on Jan 24, 2018
This product is fabulous!!! No kidding, I started feeding this to my horse and within 2 months I was using very little fly spray, and he had the least fly bites of any of the 40+ horses at the stable. Also when the vet checked to see if he need sand clear, he had little to no sand in his manurer, and he was a pasture horse with a sandy ground.
shaughsee on Dec 16, 2017
It works
valerie b on Jun 17, 2017
We had bad flies and gnats last year, and wanted to try something new that may work to keep some of them away.
Hayden D on Apr 27, 2017
i'm hoping that this product works like it says it will. one of the horses freaks out when i try to spray anything on her.
karen r on Mar 18, 2017
Perfect feed-through to use in conjunction with Fly Predators. The horses did not seem to mind the taste, especially when "hidden" in their mash.
Shannyn S on Feb 15, 2017
Price and the reviews
Brenda M on Feb 10, 2017
Item has eliminated bites from bugs....flies still are around due to other horses in the barn that do not use supplement, but they do not stay on our mare and do not bite. No bugs around her "poo".
Tonya C on Jul 25, 2016
to make my 35 YO gelding hopefully more comfortable
marla s on May 4, 2016
my horse has a rat tail so he needs some help. I hope it helps.
charli k on Jan 28, 2016
Great price. Good reviews for tick and bug prevention (Lyme disease is prevalent in my area).
WILMA H on Nov 3, 2015
Keeps nates and mosquitoes from biting horses. They used to have open sores from the nates. They don't anymore. They are still bothered by flys, but it is worth it to avoid the sores caused by nates.
Susan E on Jul 29, 2015
Was ordering prepackaged feed-through but decided to try a most cost effective product.
Meredith G on Jul 28, 2015
could not find locally. Have a mare with sweet itch, she has been on this over 1 year and appears to be helping. She had no issue eating it, mixed with timothy pellets and H20.
Judy P on May 27, 2015
I use this last year for horses that were on open pasture (in the buggy southeast) and it worked very well! I recommend gradually introducing it to their feed, because they may turn up their noses at first, but they get used to it pretty quickly.
Margaret M on May 3, 2015
Somewhat helpful, but not cure-all
SUSAN G on Mar 10, 2015
it works and is not a chemical that I have to give my horses, its natural
ANN MARIE O on Feb 11, 2015

Shannon K on Apr 29, 2014
helps to keep most of the flys off, but not all. works well I still have to use some bug spray with theis.
Kristine G on Apr 25, 2014
This products works great and the price is wonderful
Tina C on Apr 1, 2014
I read the review, most were good and the price was right for a trial use.
Donna M on Mar 10, 2014
Brewers yeast seems to help reduce irritation / reaction to bug bites. Bites heal faster. Trying to make my horse less tasty to biting flies!
Janet Smith J on Nov 12, 2013

Tracy D on Mar 1, 2019
Does this product keep the gnats aka no-see-ums away? Does the horse smell when using the product?
KATY N on Aug 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This product did not work for my mare, but I've heard it has for some other horses. They only have garlic breath right after eating. If you're like me, anything is worth trying at least once if it will relieve the bite of sweet itch!
My mare is currently on Animed Muscle-up and Via it safe to add this to her regimen as well?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have not used muscle-up but it seems fine with vita-calm, garlic and maxum crumbles. You might be able to reduce or stop needing the vita-calm. I reduced and then removed in a few weeks without her backsliding off the vita-calm. she will go back on the vita-calm when the buglyte is no longer needed. Second year on these products.
Is this Safe to use at USEF rated shows? Are all ingredients approved?
Jennifer B on Aug 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't go to approved shows so I don't know. I suggest checking with the USEF. I'm sure how often the list is updated so it might be a good idea to check on that also.
Do you carry this in 10 pound pails? and if so how much is it? Thanks
A shopper on Apr 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I did find it in a 10lb container at another site and WOW is it expensive! More than the price of two 5lb containers here! Buy the two 5lb buckets on sale, you can't beat this product at this price at this time of year. My horse loves it and the flies let her alone without spraying her.
Does this work on each individual horse or does the whole herd need to be fed this supplement for it to be effective?
Jennifer C on May 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It will help an individual horse somewhat............but it would be MOST effective if fed to all the horses in a given group.
Do you add this to feed? How much do you use and how often?
rebecca r on Jun 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Here is a direct link to the product label with feeding instructions:
Okay to feed with Cushing's meds?
Janet Smith J on Mar 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it should not interfere with or repeat dosing of anything to do with PPID medications. But when in doubt check with your veterinarian.
My gelding seemed to not like the smell or the way it made his feed taste. It was almost like he was spitting out his food. I had to scoop what was in his feeder out and replace with new feed without any supplements. Gave the recommended dosage of 1 ounce to begin with. I just got weight pUT back on him from when I bought him and can't afford for him to lose weight because he won't eat. Any suggestions?
Christie on Aug 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have used this for 3 years now on 5 horses. I have found that shaking the container before scooping helps. Also I started using cocosoya oil and it helps it stick to the feed better while giving it a better smell and it also stops it from being so dusty.
Does this work on lice?
A shopper on Apr 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I cannot say for certain. But most bugs are repelled by garlic. I know we no longer have a tick issue when my horses are down near the woods after feeding this to them.
Is this pellets or powder?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's powder and works great!
I bought this last year y can't i buy it this year?
trudy F on May 6, 2015

I'm not sure why you can't because I bought it again this year
in the Beginning of April and I didn't have any problems.

Maybe the item was out of stock when you tried...did you call
customer service to ask them to help you order this?

Hope they can help!

Great product!
I brought this last year and now I can't get it this year in Ca?
trudy F on May 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought this product last year for my horse who has been having increasingly worsening seasonal bug allergies. I fed it for about 4-5 months and it did nothing. Don't know why they asked me to answer your question.....
Can you use it on other livestock (goats cattle etc.?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have only fed it to my horse, I’m sorry I don’t know.
Is this product safe for use with broodmares?
hummergirl2010 on Jun 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It seems safe because the ingredients are natural, but I could not find any literature to back up my answer. You should check with your vet.
Can you use it on small dogs ?
Pat M on Apr 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No only horses
