Why go Natural?
Deet is the most common Insect Repellent in both humans and horses, there are multiple warnings regarding its safety, for you, your horse and for the environment.
A landmark study conducted in 2013 suggests that insects are only initially deterred by Deet, but if exposed again, would ignore it. Often thought of as the most potent insect repellent, Deet is losing its effectiveness.
Deet is incredibly harmful if ingested - not ideal for horses turned out who groom each other. It can be incredibly damaging if inhaled or if exposed to the eyes and potentially cause airway inflammation or eye conditions such as Uveitis.
On top of that, Deet is incredibly harmful to the planet, and damaging to Birds and Aquatic life.
