As we know our Horses have a very important highly developed sense of smell. Attempts have been made to assess how many times greater the horse's sense of smell is than our own, with estimates ranging up to hundreds of thousands.
They use their ability to distinguish different odours in their everyday lives. Horses use smell to identify other horses, to locate substances which are edible, for protection, a mare uses smell to pick out her foal from others in a group, they also use smell to distinguish between fresh and spoiled feed.
We as responsible horse owners must be aware of interfering with this particularly sense. Our Insect protection is ODOURLESS.
The effective insect repellent (Permethrin) that we use in our process patented technology, disrupts the neurological system of BITING & BLOOD SUCKING INSECTS, so they are unable to bite & feed. It does not always interfere with non-biting or non-blood sucking insects.
Scientific reasoning for this is speculative, as no research has been done on harmless, non-biting insects. Tests have only been carried out on BITING & BLOOD SUCKING INSECTS.
These include mosquitoes, sandflies, midges, ticks, most biting flies and fleas. The insects that pose the greatest potential risk and discomfort to your horse.
