The BioPower Stall Shield is appropriate for the vast majority of barns and will result in a significant reduction in the amount of pests in the stall. However, there are several factors that influence how difficult it will be to keep the stall pest-free, and in some cases it may be necessary to supplement the tag with other natural pest repellent approaches.

There are 3 factors that affect the ability to keep pests out of your horse's stall:

  • The amount of pests in the environment - this is mild to moderate for most parts of the country for most of the year, but there are exceptions - for example in heavily forested or swampy areas and at certain times of the year, especially in the spring.
  • The cleanliness of the barn, your horse, and the other horses in the barn. It is important to keep the entire barn clean to reduce the amount of pests. If your horse's stall is clean but the rest of the barn is filthy, it will be difficult to keep your horse's stall pest free.
  • The health of the horse - the less healthy the animal the more pests will be attracted to it, so it is important to feed a healthy diet, and to be aware that a horse with a chronic health condition will be more susceptible to pests.

So when using a natural pest repellent approach, in some cases it may be necessary to use a multi-layered strategy with more than one natural solution - which would include the BioPower Stall Shield and Horse Shield as the foundation, for they will do the lion's share of the work.

A natural fly repellent spray can be a good addition if extra protection is needed. Another good option for a layered natural approach are Brewer's Yeast & Garlic tablets or powder, which are available at most equine online stores and many local stores. Adding these to your horse's diet during the summer months will usually help greatly - and they are also good for the horse's coat.

Thus in the vast majority of cases the BioPower Stall Shield and Horse Shield will be the only pest repellent solutions needed, but if some of the factors mentioned above are an issue, it may be necessary to supplement with another natural pest repellent approach.
