Garlic is a natural repellent against flies, ticks, mosquitoes/midges and worms.
Aktiv Equine Garlic Powder is beneficial to the horse’s overall health. It acts as a natural repellant against flies, ticks, mosquitoes/midges, and worms. It also has anti-biotic, anti-oxidant, and anti-inflammatory effects, as it is a natural source of MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane). It improves respiratory functioning and reduces blood pressure.
Garlic powder should be included in every horse owner’s preventative routine in African Horse Sickness season. Midges are attracted by the CO2 emitted through the horses skin. By feeding garlic, CO2 is tainted meaning midges are not as attracted and are less likely to bite.
