LEXINGTON, Ky., May 14, 2018 — Neogen has added to its line of effective Prozap® equine fly protection products with Fly-Die Ultra™ — a hard-hitting, long-lasting, sweat-proof formula.
Prozap Fly-Die Ultra protects horses from stable flies, horn flies, house flies, horse flies, deer flies, face flies, gnats, ticks, lice and mosquitoes, including those that may transmit the West Nile virus. This sweat- and water-resistant formula binds to the hair shaft providing up to 14 days of protection — even after heavy workouts and rain.
“In the pasture, on the trail, or in the show pen, Prozap Fly-Die Ultra protects your horse rain or shine,” said Neogen’s Katherine Goodpaster. “But, the Fly-Die Ultra formula really distinguishes itself when horses get wet, and other products wash off. The new product’s sweat- and water-resistant formula provides protection during heavy workouts, even in hot, humid weather.”
Fly-Die Ultra contains 0.2% permethrin, 0.1% pyrethrins and 0.5% MGK 264.
Neogen’s premium fly protection products combine chemical and non-chemical defense against flies and other health-inhibiting insects for horses and foals and their premises. Neogen’s complete line of equine fly sprays are high quality and versatile, offering both water- and oil-based options to control flies, lice, fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and gnats. The combination of pyrethrin, permethrin, and vapona as active ingredients provides horse owners a versatile offering to best suit the needs of their horse.
