|INTRODUCING CENTAURA™ INSECT REPELLENT FOR HORSE AND RIDER|
The First and Only Spray of Its Kind – Formulated With Picaridin
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PHOENIX, Ariz. – Wouldn’t it be great if you could use an insect repellent not only on your horse, but also your entire family? There is such a product! Veterinary Products Laboratories (VPL) introduces Centaura™ Insect Repellent for Horse and Rider – the first and only insect repellent for both horse and rider that is registered in the United States by the EPA, and the only one with the active ingredient, Picaridin.
Centaura™ Insect Repellent for Horse and Rider provides horses with effective protection from flies and mosquitoes for 12 hours. Since your horse is not the only one bugged by these bloodsucking pests, this long-lasting spray also provides effective 12-hour protection for the entire family from ticks and mosquitoes, including mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus. It also repels biting flies, stable flies, black flies, gnats, chiggers and sand flies for up to 8 hours.
The convenient 15-ounce size and locking cap make Centaura™ Insect Repellent for Horse and Rider great for traveling, trail rides and competitive events. Best of all, it’s no longer necessary to carry separate protection from flies, mosquitoes and ticks for you and your horse. Centaura™ Insect Repellent for Horse and Rider is the only insect repellent you will need to keep in the barn and in the trailer to protect you both.
This exceptional, non-aerosol spray works at any angle, even upside down, to get to those hard-to-reach places. Just press on the nozzle for a consistent, continuous spray that provides uniform coverage. One 15-ounce container lasts for 8 to 15 horses/applications. This pleasantly scented spray is quiet, efficient and easy to use, and will not leave an oily or greasy residue on your skin or your horse’s hair coat. The spray won’t damage saddles or bridles and it will not damage plastic or other synthetic materials.
Picaridin, the active ingredient in Centaura™ Insect Repellent for Horse and Rider, works like a vapor barrier. The repellent evaporates from the skin to form a layer of scent that camouflages the attractive smells from people and horses so the insects cannot detect them. Picaridin is recommended by several authorities as safe, effective and the preferred alternative to DEET. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends Picaridin as the repellent of choice to protect against malaria-carrying mosquitoes, and it is on the list of products considered by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control to be effective against the transmission of West Nile Virus.
