Best anti horse fly spray?

Recommended Posts

Which anti horse fly spray do you use when working in the forest?  I will soon need a new can to replace some I got years ago when living in Canada.

Horse flies horrendous to day when working in a valley with  no wind and very humid,expect you all  suffered the same.

Agree entirely, horrendous pest, is the jungle formula a trade name or the strength of the srpray?

i started using it about 30 years ago when we where fishing in the lake district  and getting eaten alive by midges , i first aquired it from trevor moss who ran the tackle shop in gainsbourogh , as far as i know it was developed by  the MOD for the SAS and marine cor who where stationed in borneo hence the name jungle formula.
