Absorbine® Introduces UltraShield® Red and UltraShield® Sport in Gallon Sizes

East Longmeadow, MA: Recognizing that your fly control needs change depending on weather and activity levels, Absorbine® introduced UltraShield® Red Insecticide & Repellent and UltraShield® Sport Insecticide & Repellent in 32 oz. spray bottles last year. Thanks to overwhelming response and demand from horse owners, both UltraShield Red and UltraShield Sport are now also available in gallon containers, in time for the 2013 fly season.

UltraShield Red and UltraShield Sport join UltraShield EX Insecticide & Repellent and UltraShield Green Natural Fly Repellent to provide four distinct fly control options that help horses stay protected from various insects across a broad range of conditions.

UltraShield Red, in the distinctive red bottle, delivers broad spectrum control for killing and repelling biting flies such as horn flies, house flies and stable flies, which are often abundant in hot, dry climates. It uses Absorbine’s combination of five active ingredients to provide effective 24/7 fly and mosquito protection. UltraShield Red is ideal for turn-out, training and trail rides. It is available in 32 oz. spray and gallon sizes.

UltraShield EX, in the well-known black bottle, is designed for the most challenging conditions. This weatherproof, sweat-resistant formula kills and repels more than 70 species, making it the “go-to” product when you need Absorbine’s most advanced protection. UltraShield EX also contains multiple sunscreens and coat conditioners, including aloe and lanolin, all in a water-based formula. It is available in 32 oz. spray, 15 oz. non-aerosol continuous spray and gallon sizes, plus UltraShield EX 4 oz. Easy Swipe.

UltraShield Green, in the – what else – green bottle, provides a natural, eco-safe formula for repelling and controlling biting flies, mosquitoes and gnats. It contains seven essential oils known for their natural repellent qualities, and is proven to work for up to eight hours. UltraShield Green is available in 32 oz. spray and gallon sizes, plus a 2 oz. Green Gel.

Your horse’s need for insect protection changes with the weather, geographic location and riding/turnout schedule. With four fly control options, UltraShield lets you choose the right product for that day’s weather conditions and your horse’s activity level, giving you Absorbine’s most effective, affordable protection from biting and nuisance flies, mosquitoes, ticks and gnats.
