SHIRLEY R on Aug 21, 2019
Love this fly spray, works really well
DEBRA D on Apr 24, 2019
it works also
SHIRLEY R on Aug 21, 2019
Affordable, and works better than most!
Anne W on Aug 7, 2019
Love this fly spray, works really well
DEBRA D on Apr 24, 2019
This stuff works pretty well. When the gallon sized is on sale, and you get the extra spray bottle for free; it's a good value.
BROOKLYN T on Apr 15, 2019
UltraShield EX works better than anything else we've used on our horses. Nothing lasts more than a day, though, no matter what the manufacturer claims. EX smells the best and doesn't trigger hubby's allergies.
BARBARA H on Apr 5, 2019
I have a horse with an allergy to certain fly bites. This is the best product I have found so far that works and buying by the gallon saves me money.
Christy H on Mar 1, 2019
This is the most effective equine insect repellent I have found. It is long lasting and worth the price, especially if you only have a couple of horses to spray. Plus, the addition of sun block is a bonus for my light colored horse.
KELLI K on Jul 23, 2018
Great fly spray. I also use the repel-x concentrate before turning out, but prefer the ultrashield for trail riding and competing. it does a better job and lasts longer
DONNA S on May 23, 2018
This is one of the few fly repellents I've found that has "knock down power".
ELAINE S on May 9, 2018
tried the small one first --have been using repel x for a while have 4 horses, and despite everything we do the flies are so bad so thought i would try this one--does not smell as bad as repel x and since i use it almost daily i too am going to smell like it...
Ann C on May 8, 2018
It works better than anything else I've found.
SUSAN N on Mar 1, 2018
Works almost as good as Fly Spray 44, this is my rotational fly spray during bad fly seasons.
Barbara P on Aug 24, 2017
best one out there
shanette b on Jun 26, 2017
These are the items I usually use
CLAUDIA L on Jun 2, 2017
There is no better spray than this one. I have used the rest and this is the best.
VYCKEE S on May 31, 2017
This fly spray works great and is longer lasting than other brands.
CATHLEEN C on May 25, 2017
It's the ONLY fly spray that REALLY works
VICKIE JO S on May 10, 2017
This is the longest lasting fly spray I have ever used, and I've tried a lot of them!
Leslie C on May 5, 2017
It seems to work well in Texas for me for my horses.
Christine L on Apr 16, 2017
I chose this product because it is about the only fly product on the market that I had not yet tried. I have had little to no success with all other fly sprays that I purchased. I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It actually does what it says it will do. I need to only spray my equines down thoroughly about once a week, and it keeps most flies off of them for that entire time. It is more expensive than other brands, but it lasts WAY longer so you use less.
AMY L C on Dec 16, 2016
Good fly spray
teresa on Nov 20, 2016
I have used this before and liked it
MARTHA B on Oct 29, 2016
Have been using this product and works really great
Carolyn B on Sep 20, 2016
Best fly spray for watershed area with mosquitos, gnats, flies, horse flies and chiggers.
DORIE LU S on Sep 19, 2016
like it, use it
TERESA C on Jun 28, 2016
I've tried most of the fly sprays on the market and found Ultra Shield to be the absolute best. My donkey has skin allergies and I am able to use Ultra Shield without any issues. It does the job!
TAMMY B on Jun 23, 2016
best pest control that I have ever used. It was time for replacement. I will need to order another gallon before fall.
Annette on Jun 22, 2016
Have found that this works the best on my horse
GAYLE M on Jun 16, 2016
Does the job of keeping most flies off and providing sun protection. Can also be used on my dogs.
Fiona C on Jun 13, 2016
It works!
MARGO M on May 29, 2016
Best fly spray on the market
Melissa P on May 25, 2016
it seems to work the best.

I wanted to help keep flies off my horse.
NANCY S on Mar 5, 2016
Love it! Does not make the horse's coat gummy.
Karen Ruth L on Jan 31, 2016
This is by far my favorite spray! Well worth the money!

Seems to work as good as any and it does not bother my allergic horse
TED B on Aug 16, 2015
Because it is supposed to be sweat proof and waterproof.

JAMES O on Apr 28, 2015
For my kennel, It is good protection for Dogs too.
Kirk Y on Mar 31, 2015
I used this year before last and it worked great. I tried something different last year and it did not work nearly as well. This is a great product.
DIANA B on Jan 9, 2015
CANDI J on Dec 5, 2014

CARMELLA C on Dec 1, 2014
Affordable, and works better than most!
Anne W on Aug 7, 2019
This stuff works pretty well. When the gallon sized is on sale, and you get the extra spray bottle for free; it's a good value.
BROOKLYN T on Apr 15, 2019
Is this product oily or greasy ? Does dirt cling to it.
Regina on Aug 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have never known it to be oily or greasy. However, I do mix it 50/50 with Aloe Herbal repellant before spraying it on my horses.
Hi. Can I use this on my pregnant dog? We have ticks here really bad this year.
Kimberly V on Jul 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't use it on a dog. I don't have the product in front of me and can't remember if it says for horses only, but there are a number of products available for dogs that are applied and last for a month. Formulated for dogs, they kill ticks before the tick bites.
What does cont spray mean on a flyspray bottle?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't see "cont" in the description once I get online. But "cont" in any spray usually means "continuous". It means you can press the nozzle & spray comes out as long as you keep your finger on. Suntan lotion is a good example of a continuous spray. However I've been buying this black label ultrasheild EX for 20 years & it has ALWAYS been pump, not continuous.
Is this oil based?
Valita S on Jun 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's not oily at all. I love it, it also has coat conditioning and sun block. If you're going to ride don't spray where the saddle and girth are going. No flies on my mare.
can the continuous spray be refilled?
cee c on Apr 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sorry but I bought the gallon refill and Use a plant sprayer.
will you post to australia?
robyn T on Oct 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This appears to work the best of anything I have tried yet. The flies are just pests.
How long does the 1 g last once opened.?
Ashley T on Jul 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We use it on 2 horses daily. 1 gallon will last us about a month. One horse is at least 16 hands and the other is 14.2.. As far as strength, we have had a partial gallon left over in the fall and it seems to be ok the following spring. We live near Houston so our winters aren't very cold.
Do i get a free bottle when ordering 2 gallons?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2017

If I order three gallons of Absorbine Ultra Shield and they are giving the smaller bottle free when you order one gallon, will I receive three of the smaller bottles? I am ordering one gallon for myself and two other gallons for two other people at the barn. Thank you.
John C on May 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We are not currently showing a giveaway promotion for this item. But when we do, yes, there would be a free item for each regular item ordered.
will this repel horse flies?
A shopper on Aug 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As we do not have many horse flies, I can't say for sure. My guess would be no as the horse flies I've seen are pretty persistent. It does work very well on regular stable flies.
will this be okay to spray around the lawn to try and keep the flies away?
Cindy on Aug 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, I have not used it on grass, but it has not damaged any of my weeds! I put it on my dogs which are more sensitive than a lawn with no problems. Check your local outdoor store, I bought something one time for an outdoor party (price was reasonable) and it was for outdoor flies and mosquitos, and lasted many hours. I will say when I spray it on my barn walls and shavings that the flies are back in a few hours. Good Luck.
What is your telephone number?
A shopper on Jul 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, will not give out phone number, but if you have a question about this product, I'd be happy to answer it.
What is the spf rating?
Adriane M on Jan 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is no spf rating listed anywhere on the bottle but it is the only product of its kind that we use. It is by far the best fly spray we have ever used. I would highly recommend this product. It keeps our 3 horses insect free with bright shiny coats all summer long. You get instant results from this product.
Does autoship guarantee the same price & free shipping as my original order?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It does not. Auto Ship is for 10% off the list price and the automatic timing.
is it safe for pregnant mares?
LOUIS S on Aug 10, 2014

do you price match competitors?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2014
