Neogen Prozap War Paint Insecticidal Paste is specially formulated for full body fly control. It provides protection for horses against insects such as house flies, bot flies, black flies, face flies, horn flies, and stable flies. Contains three active ingredients that are relevant in targeting and killing flies. This insecticidal paste sticks and attaches to the hair when applied to horses and slowly releases the insecticide until it completely gives a full body control. It is proven to leave no visible negative effects on horses because, after two to three weeks of application, the paste turns powdery and falls off the horse' hair. For extended protection, apply to parts of the horse where fly conjugation occurs. Available in a convenient 96-gram tube.

War Paint, once applied to the hair of the horse, cannot be wiped off. Therefore, it should not be used within one to two weeks of an event or show in which the presence of small amounts of war Paint of the horse’s coat would have an adverse effect on the horse’s appearance. As with any product certain individual horses may be sensitive to one or more of the ingredients in War Paint. If local irritation should occur, discontinue use. If irritation persists, discontinue use, was area and consult a veterinarian.
Full Body Fly Control:
Adult horses: For the treatment of pastured horses, it is recommended that a full application is applied as a single treatment. This should provide adequate fly control for approximately one week on pastured horses.
Apply one (1) gram under each eye, two (2) grams on withers and (2) gram on each leg below the hock or knee – 12 grams total as a single treatment. DO NOT REPEAT TREATMENT FOR SEVEN (7) DAYS.
FACE FLIES: Turn the applicator wheel until the gel is seen at the top of the applicator then continue turning 1/8 of a turn to place on (1) gram of War Paint on top of the applicator. Then while holding the applicator lengthwise, apply under the eye along the lower lid, close to the lid margin. Do not apply directly to the eye. Make a 1-inch wide stripe along the entire lower lid from corner to corner. For maximum Face Fly control, it is very important to place the product around the inside corner of the eye where the top and bottom lids meet. This is the area where tearing occurs due to fly irritation and where face flies congregate to feed. Repeat the application to the other eye. A 1 – inch stripe under each eye will apply 2 grams of War Paint to the face.
HORN FLIES, BLACK FLIES, AND HOUSE FLIES: Turn the applicator wheel ¼ turn to place 2 grams of War Paint on the top of the applicator. Then apply a 1 by 4-inch stripe under the horse’s mane on the withers. Place the product far enough up the withers so the product will not be under the saddle or blanket if the horse is to be ridden.
STABLE FLIES AND BOT FLIES: Apply a 1 by 4-inch stripe to each leg. Turn the applicator wheel ¼ turn to place 2 grams of War Paint on the top of the applicator. Then apply the material to the front of the house’s leg for inches below the knee or hock. Touch the applicator to the spot to be treated and move the applicator in the narrow direction up the horse’s leg four inches toward the knee or hock. Smooth out the material using the top of the applicator to a 1 inch wide by a 4-inch long stripe on each leg.
BOT FLIES: To kill and repel bot flies during the egg-laying season, War Paint should be applied over the bot eggs already on the horse. A four-inch by one-inch wide strip should be painted over the area where the bot eggs are attached. This should be done instead of applying War Paint to the front of the leg since this application will also control stable flies and bot flies usually lay their eggs on the sides of the horse’s legs.
FOALS: The same technique for applying War Paint can be used on foals, except the only ½ of the adult amount should be used – 6 grams total. Since the foal’s eyes are smaller than adult horses, a one-inch wide stripe under each eye of a foal will apply on a ½ gram of War Paint under each eye. When applying to the foal’s withers and legs, make the application stripe only 1 inch wide by 2 inches long instead of the 4-inch long stripe used on adult horses. This will ensure that a foal will receive one-half of the adult horse does. Remember, a 1/8 turn of the applicator wheel will dispense one gram of War Paint on the top of the applicator.
LOCAL FLY CONTROL: For horses that are to be ridden and handled frequently, lesser amounts of War Paint be applied more frequently are a better choice. Lesser amounts of War Paint applied discreetly and prudently to the horse can provide more effective local fly control for several days to a week. If this technique is used, remember not to apply more than 12 grams of War Paint to a horse in any 7 day period. See application technique and illustrations.
