Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

I think I have heard somewhere that cironella should not be used on horses as it does deter flies, but actually attracts the AHS midgies. Is this correct? I use Deltab dip once a week, is this much good?

We cannot comment on the use of Citronella however I can state that the use of citronella oil in horse products has been banned in all EU countries.
