Pets & Supplies Pest Control

Bite-Lite has the best outdoor horse fly control system

If you know your fly entomology, and you indeed have the species called tabanids, aka horse flies, Bite-Lite has the best outdoor horse fly control system on the market, the H-Trap.

Bite Lite 1With its one legged metal anchor rod, the H-Trap is sturdy, wind and weather resistant, and easy to set up and maintain in both commercial and residential settings where blood thirsty green heads, deer flies, yellow flies, and "B 52s " are waiting to bite your horses in the paddocks and family near the pool.

The H-Trap has been scientifically proven to trap biting female horse flies better than any other commercial or government surveillance trap.

Bitr lite 2Coverage is 2.5 acres or about 5 horses.

The H-Trap is not designed to catch biting stable and horn flies.

Bite-Lite is a family-run business whose mission is to offer unique and often natural solutions against biting and stinging insects.

Standing alone in a hot, sunny location, the trap works chemical free, with the thermal black ball acting as a natural attractant. To enhance more catches, Bite-Lite is now selling chemical lures in 27 registered

The unique design of EquiGroomer makes horses, dogs and cats love it!

Although originally designed as a shedding tool for horses, avid animal lover Cheryl Dauphin quickly learned that many of her equine customers were using EquiGroomer on their own cats and dogs.

Equi groomer 1From Corgis and Shepherds to Boxers and Bulldogs, nearly every dog owner gave her a 'thumbs up'.

Even cat owners, who said they couldn’t get near their cats with anything resembling a grooming tool, boasted that their cats—even their long-haired ones—loved the EquiGroomer because the blade mimicked another cat’s tongue.

What makes the EquiGroomer unique is the design of its teeth which relies on physiology rather than friction to remove unwanted hair.

As hair gets old and dry it develops scales that not only attract dirt and dander, it also causes the hair to get dull.

Equi groomer 3Tiny burrs on each tooth of the EquiGroomer’s blade grab onto those scales and gently pull the dead hair out taking the dirt and grime with it.

More importantly, because there is no cutting edge between each tooth, the EquiGroomer only removes dead, scaly hair.

Healthy hair glides effortlessly between the teeth so your pet’s coat will actually improve with regular use.

Equi groomer 2Keeping your dog or cat’s coat clean, shiny, soft and free from the itch and unsightliness of a shedding coat is the responsibility of all caring pet owners.

Make the Flies Get Lost With Ecovet, Pesticide-Free Repellent Now Available in Improved Scent

Horse owners often find their fly sprays are losing the battle against pesky flies.

Eco vet 1Many are concerned about using toxic pesticides on their horses, but find that "natural" essential oil products aren't up to the job.

Enter Ecovet, a totally different type of fly spray.

Developed, tested, endorsed and owned by veterinarians, Ecovet is not a pyrethrin/pyrethroid derivative (which can be toxic), and it is also not an essential oil product.

Instead, Ecovet's formulation is 5% each of three food-grade fatty acids, 84% volatile silicone oil and 1% fragrance.

Ecovet founder Dr. Tim John, a veterinarian, explains how the fly spray works so well: "After Ecovet is applied, the fatty acids evaporate and create a vapor barrier around the horse. This confuses and overwhelms an insect's normal directional ability — basically its 'GPS.' Thanks to this Ecovet barrier, the insect simply can't locate the horse as its next victim."

EcoVet 3In 2018, Ecovet introduced an improved scent based on customer feedback.

Dr. John describes the fragrance as an "herbal blend of lavender with a hint of tea."

The updated scent does not impact Ecovet's well-known effectiveness in the fight against flies.

Even better news? Ecovet is the only repellent that helps prevent insect-related skin sensitivity by stopping insects from landing on the horse in the first place.

"If insects don't land, they don't bite. And if a horse isn't bitten, there's less chance for insect-related skin reactions or hypersensitivity, aka the dreaded sweet itch," notes Dr. John.

Ecovet not only repels but also kills mosquitoes, flies, ticks and no-see-ums.

EcoVet 4Ecovet ambassador Jennifer McFall describes her experience with the fly spray: "Our facility [in California] is right next to a cow farm, so we get more than our fair share of flies! ... I've never found anything that works like Ecovet does. Their non-toxic fatty acid formula is completely unique to the fly control market, and it keeps our horses happy and comfortable so we can leave them outside longer, even in peak fly season!"

Horse owners can watch how Ecovet makes the flies get lost and see application tips at bit.ly/ecovetvideos.

Ecovet is available for purchase at eco-vet.com.

Organic Cowboy™Fly Parasites – fly control for equine facilities and stables.

Organic Cowboy Pic Panaroma
Biological fly control is a time-honored method to control flies before they become adult pests that can spread disease and trouble your horses. Fly parasites are harmless, gnat-sized parasitoids that are a natural enemy of flies. They deposit their eggs exclusively in fly pupae, destroying the immobilized fly in its pupal stage long before it becomes an adult pest.
Organic Cowboy Pupa
Fly parasites should be distributed in primary fly breeding habitats. Typically at horse stables, those areas where manure builds up along fence lines, messy areas in pastures and where manure is stored for later removal. When you find primary fly breeding hapbitats simply peel open the pack and shake your fly parasites out and they'll do the rest of the work.
"Fly parasite parasitizing a fly pupa."
Organic Cowboy's proven blend of fly parasites includes Spalangia cameroni, Muscidfurax zaraptor, and Muscidfurax raptorellus.

The #1 Rule for Better Performance is Nutrition, Nutrition, Nutrition!

Lampley 2

Recent research into the role of vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin E, Selenium, Copper, and Zinc provides a link to improving immune function in horses. The amount of some vitamins and minerals required for enhanced immune response is greater than the amount required for normal growth. 




If symptoms of clinical definiciency are noticeable, the animal is already compromised with respect to growth, immunity, and performance.
