Product Summary:

Prozap® War Paint Insecticide Paste
War Paint®requires very small amounts to kill and repel flies. Small amounts of War Paint are placed on the horse only where flies tend to congregate.

War Paint, when applied to the horse, attaches to the hair of the horse and slowly releases the insecticide over a period of weeks. Full body fly control does not usually occur until 1 to 2 days after the application. The reason for this is it takes awhile for the formulation to release the insecticide onto the horse's hair.

Because War Paint is not only an insecticide, but also an effective repellent, you will notice that in the case of face fly activity, the repellent activity of the product will be apparent within hours if not immediately after application.

After a period of one to two weeks, as the insecticide is released onto the horse's hair, you will find that War Paint becomes powdery and will fall off the horse's hair leaving no adverse effects on the horse's appearance.

Directions For Use:

Full Body Fly Control:
Adult Horses:
For the treatment of pastured horses, it is recommended that a full application of War Paint be applied as a single treatment. This should provide adequate fly control for approximately one week on pastured horses.

Precautions For Use:
Do not apply to the hair of a wet animal since the product will not adhere to moist surfaces. War Paint, once applied to the hair of the horse, cannot be wiped off. Therefore, it should not be applied within 1 to 2 weeks of an anticipated show even in which the presence of small amounts of War Paint on the horse's hair would have an adverse effect on the horse's appearance. As with any product, certain horses may be sensitive to one of the ingredients in War Paint and develop some local irritation. If irritation occurs, discontinue use. If irritation persists, consult your veterinarian.

Easy to use and works well
It has been frustrating to try so many sprays over the years and nothing seems to work here in Las Vegas. War paint was new to me.
Oh, it was kind of icky childish fun to apply it, but it works. Washing off my hands was ok. The flies stay off. I don't have to go out and spray my horse's legs every day. Glad I found this product.

Pastured horse fly control!
Warpaint is great for pastured horses. It works well to keep their midline from being chewed up by horn and black flies. I do use an additional stripe of it on their bellies. We have lots of cattle pastured around us and the flies are vicious. It is not immediately effective but gives good control generally by the next day. Do not use under tack. Just take a stiff brush and remove if in your way. Great since it usually stays on if it rains. I like that it pretty much lasts a week between applications.

Very easy to use.
I apply with my gloved finger. It's easier to control.

wow, quite impressed
There are so many fly repellents out there, that claim this, and that, and don't even come close to there claims. This stuff worked very well.We live and trail ride in Ohio, flies can ruin a trail ride, if not controlled, and I have to say, this is the best stuff we've found out there. No head shaking on the trails, hallelujah!Important, READ AND FOLLOW LABLE!Hope you love it too.

Waste of money
I bought this to try in place of Swat for the sheath and ear areas on my horses for gnats. It's true you only need a swipe but this does not repel the gnats at all. Vaseline works better and is $12.00 cheaper.

This is a great product. We have a terrible fly problem this year and tried this for the first time. Horses are not stomping or swishing their tails near as much as in the past. Great product and will continue to use.

Best Stuff Ever!!!
I have been using this for years. I absolutely love it. Yes, it does leave streaks, hence the name War Paint, but is not sticky or goopy if you use it as intended. It doesn't take huge amounts and lasts for more than a week. Way, way better than any other fly product I've found.Buy it! It works!

great fly repellent
I live in south eastern kentucky. All of my horses are pasture kept. I put it behind ears, under eyes, under jaw, by their chestnuts, by the tail head, and on udders and sheaths. worked for a WEEK. Even thru the rain.I recommend this to everyone. Especially for a horse afraid of sprays.

Works wonderful for pastured horses for fly problems.
KATHY S O on Jul 3, 2015
I have used this before. It works well for horses turned out and which tear their fly masks off.
Shirley D on Jun 17, 2015
Works! Messy, sticky and collects dust but it is the only thing that will stay on for long periods of time and really works. Use on under belly, inside ear tips, outer ears, around teats, sheath and lower legs for no biting, blood sucking flies or gnats! Horses are comfortable for a week or more! Combine this with a fly sheet and mask for the happiest horses ever!
BARBARA S on May 30, 2015
Bugs/flies are terrible, gotta do something! This product was recommended by other horse friends.

Best fly control for horses in the pasture
Dennis C on Apr 9, 2014
LOVE War Paint. Stays put and really stops those flies from biting my horses face and ears. She looks a little bit goofy, but I know she feels better when the flies leave her alone. Also, this is long lasting so I don't need to bother her with an application every day.

Is it O.K. to use War Paint on an open sore?
A shopper on Oct 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, my horse gets open sores on his belly that bleed and attract flies. I use War Paint directly on the sores and cover them completely with the Paint. They heal a lot faster keeping the flies off the sores and depending on the weather it can stay on up to a week. I also use it around his eyes to keep the flies off because he refuses to wear a fly mask. Great Stuff!!!...
What color is it?
A shopper on May 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It starts off white until it absorbs into the skin some. It is very sticky. I put it on my finger tips and rub it in around the outsides of the eyes, nostrils and ears. But it works! I use it for trail riding and horses in pasture or those horses that refuse to wear a fly mask. Not something you want to put on if you are showing as the dust will stick to it. Hope that helps!
Can warpaint be used on cows ?
A shopper on Jul 6, 2016
