Rated 1 out of 5 by Marilyn Skender Solitude IGR allergies?
I have used this Solitude IGR on my 3 horses since early spring and have noticed no difference in the amount of flies I have around the barn. Also, my horses have all displayed some degree of "itchy butt" and have been rubbing their tails off. I do not know if the product was the cause of this syndrome; however, it started after I started used the product and it is the only new item that they have been exposed to. So I recently discontinued use of the product to see if it would resolve the "itchy butt" syndrome.The product is very expensive and I got no improve fly control.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lyn Any allergy issues?
Hello, I have used Solitude IGR for three years. The product is as described; the fly issue has dropped dramatically. However, three years ago my mare started having an itchy stomach/rare areas in Feb. Previously, I have blamed this on flies, but this year there were no flies until March 29. I begin Solitude in February as usually the flies begin early here in the desert. It occurred to me that this itching starts in February and I begin IGR in February. Has anyone else had a horse that developed this condition that coincides with the feeding of IGR?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Amanda I've learned my lesson!
I used this product for almost 2 years and ran out a couple months ago. I decided to try without and have noticed a huge increase in the fly population. The biggest thing I just came across was that I dispose of the manure into large plastic garbage cans and I opened the lid yesterday and there were thousands of developing fly larvae squiggling around all over the container. This has NEVER happened in the past so I have to figure that the Solitude had been doing an awesome job up until the time I ran out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by K.Miller Very pleased with the results
The flies are absolutely horrible in my area resulting in some huge vet bills last summer treating summer sores. I've used predators for the last two years but this year I added Solitude to my "fight." I started in Feb as we have a long fly season and I've had very few flies this year. Also, I've not had to use fly spray this year on my horses. I'm also still using predators but the Solitude has really made the difference. Will continue this "forever." Worth it even though it is a bit pricey. Another plus, my horses eat it by itself and wait for me to give it to them.

Excellent product -- have 27 horses and it is so simple to add to the feed. I use year round now to prevent even those flies that want to overwinter from getting a head start on me during warmer time of winter. Have used for 2 years and wont use anything other feed thru cause Solitude is so much safer and effective than the other feed thru products for all my horses. Solitude doesn't kill the beneficial insects and invertebrates like other fly products.
