Official description

Lincoln Fly Stoppa is a highly effective fly spray with Deet. It contains added tea tree oil for its skin conditioning and anti-bacterial properties.

First impressions

The labelling really caught my eye and the bottle fitted really well in my hand.

Overview of performance

Sadly the spray mechanism broke quite quickly. But when it was working I did find it fairly effective against the small flies and it went onto the horses’ coats nicely.

Georgi’s likes and dislikes

I like the simple design of the bottle, but the spray top could be more robust.

Verdict

I think this will be a good addition to a horse owners’ tack room when they need that quick spritz just before they ride.
