Deosect® is an effective topical spray to help control flies and lice on horses, ponies and donkeys.

The Deosect® must be diluted with water just before application. A hand sprayer or sponge can be used to carefully apply the solution avoiding contact with their eyes and broken skin.

For fly control, the application of Deosect® should commence at the onset of the fly season and be repeated monthly for general fly control and every two weeks for severe head and face fly control.

Apply when lice are observed and repeat as necessary at a minimum interval of 14 days.


Deosect® must be diluted and mixed with water to make a solution just before use. A knapsack, hand sprayer or a sponge may be used to apply the solution. The solution should be used within 24 hours. Avoid spraying directly into animals eyes.

One litre of Deosect® should be diluted with 50 litres of water. Alternatively, the following may be used:

Deosect® 10ml diluted with 500ml Water

Deosect® 20ml diluted with 1 litre Water

Deosect®100ml diluted with 5 litres Water

What our vet says

What our vet says
"This is a long-lasting spray and highly effective. Remember that you must dilute this before use. Always read the instructions carefully before using. A good tip is to keep your horses eyes clean and dry so as not to attract more flies and also keep fly masks spotlessly clean."
