Carr & Day & Martin Extra Strength is a powerful insect repellent that repels midges and all flying and biting insects effectively. It contains the proven, researched active ingredient Deet at an optimum level of 20% for powerful, long-lasting protection.
This looked like it would do the job and the fact that it said “extra strength” really drew me in.
Overview of performance
I found the continuous spray really quick and easy on the horses that didn’t mind being sprayed, but it did cause a hassle on the ones that are more sensitive. This was effective for long hours in the day and didn’t have to be re-applied after sweating. However, at dusk in the summer when the flies were really bad, I did have to re-apply it.
Georgi’s likes and dislikes
I really like that when using it on a horse that is relaxed about being sprayed it is so quick and easy to apply. I would say this was the second-most long-lasting spray we tested.
*BEST VALUE* I would recommend this as it’s great value and does a good job.
