Love this supplement!
This is the second season that Iâ??ve used it and my horses are already looking better after just 1 week. Havenâ??t decided on how well the bug repel is working yet.

Picky Eater Appeoved
Yay! I finally found a bug supplement that my horses will eat - they can be so picky! After the first few weeks, you only use half of a small scoop each day, so it lasts a long time. One of my horses is really bother by bugs. She still scratches, but maybe less so with this supplement??

Helps with flies
Been using for short while, but it seems to be helping with flies. I had to add a little sugar to my feed at first, but now the horses don't seem to notice it.

Hoping it works.
Used it for 2 weeks now, it has been cooler so not many flies. Hopefully works well when the flies get bad.
June 28, 2017
great if you like garlic
Can't say wether this is any good or not. My horse thinks it smells terrible and won't get near it'. The look on his face is priceless but I have a canister that will never see the light of day again!

Great supplement for fly control
I been using this supplement for a few years already, and it works. My horses like it and the flies are for most parts gone. I have saved on fly spray and would recommend this product. Horsedotcom is fast to deliver the product to your home and has the most reasonable prices around.

We have been giving BUG CHECK to our horses for over 5 years, along with Wendals Herbs Garlic Granules, to protect them from biting flies during the warm months here. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND both these products to everyone wanting to protect their animals from rampant fly attacks, and also eliminate the breeding of fly larvae in the manure. I have tried several other products over the years, but once we began using Bug Check with the additional Wendals Garlic Granules, what few flies we saw completely left our horses alone! The garlic (and other natural ingredients) in Bug Check and Wendals made their coats shiny and healthy and they exuded a mild Garlic scent which repelled both the large and small biting flies. We didn't have to use fly spray and face masks all summer long! The diatomaceous earth in the Bug Check kills the larvae in the manure, so they never hatch! We enjoy virtually fly-less summers! WONDERFUL PRODUCTS!! And has the BEST PRICES on these products!

Bug Check
So far it's been raining forever it seems. I'm in Norther CA. I've been giving this to my mare in her grain. It seems to be working so far. It's hard to say at this time since it's been so cold.

horses ate it without any problems
used it last year and it worked well, using again this year. tried other products that worked the same but they were harder to feed.

"To make my horse less tasty to bugs to reduce bites & attracting them. Also hope it makes manure less hospitable to bugs."

Lisa M on Mar 21, 2016
I've been using this product for 8 years. It does a good job keeping the fly population down. My horses don't have problems with flies. I would recommend this to anyone who has horses.
VANESSA D on Mar 2, 2015
i have a red horse that the no see ums get to him.i am hoping this works for him
DIANE G on Jan 23, 2015
Great reviews
Jeanette W on Nov 30, 2014
This is the first summer I have used this product. I reordered it and it seems to be helping the fly issues. There are a lot less around the fresh manure. Will know for sure when the weather gets hot.
DANA R on Jun 16, 2014
It Works. Just add it to their feed. No sprays!
NANCY G on Jun 8, 2014
This product works! I have a mare that is highly allergic to fly bites and she suffers with horn fly infestations. Within 24 hrs the horn flies are gone and the fly numbers diminish greatly. I Highly recommend this product, my mare does too. I keep my 5 horses on it for 5-6 months during the hot months here in north central FL.
Meg H on May 27, 2014
I have a horse that is sensitive to bug bites and I liked the reviews I have read on Bug Check and the great price!
CHERYL R on Apr 22, 2014
Very happy with this product--this is the 3rd year I'm using it. (21 horses in the barn)
Pamela R on Apr 22, 2014
I tried this for the first time starting six weeks ago, and it seems to be working. My horse is out most of the time in the Florida heat. The bugs are not eating her up or leaving welts. It must be working!
BOYCE J on Apr 20, 2014
to help with the fly problem around the horses. I have used this for 4 years. Great price too on your site
CLAUDIA B on Apr 10, 2014
This product works. If started early enough in the spring, the bugs in the barn and around the horses are noticeably less than the horses that are not on it. You can literally see the gnats/midges hover over my mares and move on to another horse in the pasture.
Sandra R on Feb 27, 2014
I've used a pure garlic treatment for biting flies which proved effective but is no longer shipping to Alaska so I'll try this product which also contains garlic and a minimal number of other ingredients.
RANDI M on Feb 18, 2014
it works well and they eat it without complaint.
Emily C on Jun 4, 2017
great product and it works well
SALLY B on May 13, 2017
is it safe for sheep?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Can be fed to sheep
Do you have the 10 lb size that could ship soon?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 10 lb size is in stock right now and available for immediate shipment.
Is this a powder?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: More like granulated to me. It is easy to measure and use. Not messy like a flour type powder would be.
What is the shelf life on this product? Found almost full container in my barn, date is 2012. Is it still usable?
Marta C on May 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Does it smell rancid? Since it has been opened, I would hesitate to use it. Not just because there may be some breakdown but because it probably won't be effective.
Is this ok to feed with the sho glo vitamin supplement?
Susie on Jun 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry, I don't know the answer to that question. I have never used sho glo. If I was you, I would send an inquiry to the Natural Vet, the company that makes the Bug Check product and find out from them.
Is this product ok for cows too?
Gayle S on Jul 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is great for cows, sheep, goats etc. They make a separate formula for dogs, cats. I have used this for 5 years on my two horses. I buy the 10lb. size. I swear it works on most flies but the gnats and horse fly are still around. I use this and the fly predators and the big fly traps. This year is the first year that I bought the formula for dogs and cats. Everyone was complaining about the bad flea season and I never saw them scratch. The horse are ok with the taste, the cats hate it. This won't eliminate all flies but it sure does help keep the livestock a little more comfortable.
What happened to the larger size? I'd like to order the 30-lb size, not 2 lb!
ASHLEY M on Mar 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Oh no, I hope they still make the larger size! With 4 horses the 2 lb is not enough. I hope the manufacturers respond.
