Two horses had extremely large welts and legs were swollen. Dangerous. Side effect warning would have been nice on the lable.

Usually you cannot find a fly spray that works on gnats. This one does. We pulled up at a show and were immediatley swarmed by gnats! I sprayed it on myself and the horses and its like the gnats dissapeared! Great price, not a bad smell, and overall great product!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Northshore44 NOT for sensitive skin! Harsh product.
I have been using this spray periodically for about 6-8 wks. However, not even thinking I sprayed the horse first (which I never do) - then saddle up. Just so happens the vet came to give shots - so she was seen by a vet. She is covered from head to rump with welts & swelling which the vet called burns and pointed directly to the bottle as the culprit - she had swelling on her throat which scared me too. from this spray (according to my vet), . I had to bathe her to get it off her skin. Another stable mate mentioned she had the same experience with this spray sometime ago. Its been 3 days and she still has welts on her. I feel so bad for her. It's in the trash now. So, does it work - probably - did it cause discomfort - yup. Use with caution - or at least sparingly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AH Beware of allergies!
I wrote a review last year about this. I still stand by the fact that this stuff absolutely works wonders to drive flies away. However, I used this on my mare last summer, an entire bottle's worth. I have been using it two weeks on my mare this summer. And suddenly, she began to break out in severe hives, that turned into huge welts on her sides and belly. I couldn't believe it was the fly spray at first, and after a week of dex and cold hosing, she was back to normal. Then I sprayed her...in an hour, hives all over again. Caught it in time to wash it off and the reaction wasn't quite as severe. But I cannot use this any more, and I wanted to post this updated review to alert others that your horse MAY not react to it at first, like mine. So just be vigilant to make sure that your horse doesn't suddenly react, even after testing a patch of skin. It does work amazing, but based on my experience and other reviews, it's just a scary product to use! Not sure what I'm going to switch to - a bit paranoid now!

Rated 1 out of 5 by DD Horse is allergic!
Going on a recommendation from the feed store employee I purchased this for the first time last week. Used it on my mare and seemed to work great. No stomping, biting, tail swishing..... Next day, re-applied a light coat in the morning and by noon the mare had developed SEVERE welts. Took 3 full soap cycles to get it out and the administration of a dose of Tri-Hist before the horse was back to normal. Not sure what my mare is allergic to but I won't be using it again. Too bad, because it really did seem to work.....

I love Pyranha. It was recommended to me by our local tack shop owner. It keeps my horses fly free and if you mist the stalls and aisle lightly it will kill flys on contact. The drop in fly population in my barn is amazing.

I used Bronco for years. I'd seen the results others had with more expensive sprays and they were about the same and I figured why spend more for the same results. After hurricane Irene, we had a horrible fly/mosquito population, and Bronco was doing nothing and after reading the other reviews I bought this, and I will never use anything else. It's fantastic. My mare will be standing there kicking and stomping, and I spray this on and she will not kick or stomp any more, period. Unlike a lot of sprays, when you spray this on flies, they fall to the ground dead, rather than flying away from the mist.

Rated 1 out of 5 by FenSum Caustic, Dangerous Avoid
Light application followed by rain that night left my horse with hot blistering welts where the flyspray had concentrated on the spots on the underside of his belly. My horse is NOT the allergic type, and has never even sneezed at dusty hay. This is a DANGEROUS product. DO NOT USE.

I switched to this product after trying many others. Pyranha works great and has a nice smell. My mare can stand and eat without the flies driving her crazy. The price is within reason also, which really helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LD Freaking Awesome Product!!!!
I have used so many different fly sprays and drops that I had almost given up on finding a spray or drop that would finally give my black thoroughbred relief during the summer months. Finally decided to try Pyranha, and boy was it was worth the test!!! I was actually able to trail ride today without worrying about him bucking at the huge horse flies that seem to just love him. This spray is amazing!! It is also helping hime with some dry skin he was having, which I believe was from the other spray that I was using on him. I am so happy to see him actually enjoying the pasture now without being tortured by the flies. He is outside 24/7 and with this product he isn't bothered or bitten up like he had been. It also worked great for my Palomino Quarterhorse. A big thanks to the manufacturer of Pyranha!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ktcorey The BEST Fly/Insect Poduct
My working cow horse girlfriend turned me on to Pyranha. I had tried so many worthless products I was wary of trying anything else that was expensive but probably wouldn't work.
Pyranha is the absolutely BEST product I have ever used for insects - I am neurotic about flies on my mules, let alone in my barn - I am absolutely compulsive/obsessive about keeping flies off of my girls. This product is worth it's weight in gold. I recommend it to EVERYONE!

I have tried so many different sprays, including almost every single Absorbine product. None of them could touch this. It has lasted up to two days for us, and my horse is the only one not shaking and stomping in the pasture. I personally think it has a pleasant smell, and the lanolin ingredient makes my horse's coat glisten.

I do not like this stuff. If you read the back there are many different chemicals. It does not keep off flies and makes my horse smell super funky. Not worth it! I LOVE MANNA PRO! ITS WAAAY BETTER!

Bought a bottle of this put it on the floor in my car when I got home found the lid was not on tightly and the spray leaked all over my carpet. I have not been able to use my car in a week the smell is so bad I have tried everything to get the smell out! How toxic is this stuff?
