Natural Pest Control tips for your Horse and Stable:
The BAD STUFF: Many stable sprays are so toxic that you might feel unwell just inhaling them. They frequently contain pyrethroid permethrin, which is a possible carcinogen and a suspected endocrine disruptor. Animal studies with just small amounts of permethrin have shown immunotoxicity! In plain language - you don't want to be near these or inhale them. Stable sprays also can be expensive and their nasty ingredients are ultimately damaging to your horse. Additionally they can kill beneficial animals living in and around your stables like frogs, barn swallows, and good bugs. You may have tried homemade sprays, although many of them do not work.
In addition to using less harmful alternatives like Don't Bug Me!, try these tips to reduce pests in your horse's home.
