“Incredibly effective repellent without the harsh chemicals. Using other products, sensitive skinned ‘Zidane’ lost hair on his neck, I found Nature’s Botanical and saw how amazing it worked and how nicely his skin reacted. Won't use anything else and it smells amazing!” Emma Booth Australian Paralympian

“Works like magic. You can use it on both you and your horses. No flies touched my mares wounds.” Ashlee Denning

“This is the best we use it around the ponies faces when were competing. I always get bitten badly and have quite nasty reactions so the roll on is kept in my handbag and it has been great all summer.” Jean Paul

”Brilliant stuff. I use the cream on myself and have used it in a circle around the eyes. When I was in Pilbara, WA the flies were dreadful and caused infections in my eyes until I began using the cream to keep them off. I would only apply it once per day, to myself and also to my mare.” Anne Hughes‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬


"I have used this product and found it really works, living near the water in QUEENSLAND the midges are ferocious and being allergic to their bites I have found this product really works. I suffer with Dermatitis, it is one product that I can use on my skin without reactions. I now have my whole family up here in QLD using it, and we can all now enjoy going outside after dusk without being bitten. I highly recommend it." Janelle Baker

"I love it. A couple of itchy bites, I mean itchy as, then pop your product on, itch gone for good. Usually bites itch for a good 2-3 days on and off, N/B is brilliant.” Sandra Munro

“Natures Botanical is amazing. It's nice to wear, not greasy, with a pleasant fragrance. It works against flies, mosquito's, march flies midgies. Great for sensitive skin.” Amanda Troy Norris

“Awesome product. I use this on a property west of Warwick QLD. Don’t know if it’s coincidence but I would get at least two ticks on me every time I went there when using the Bushmans 80deet. Since switching over to Natures Botanical I have not got one yet. Definitely works on flies, midge and mosquitoes as well and you don’t feel guilty after using it. I stopped using Bushmans after witnessing it melting the print off my T-shirt and the rubber case on my iPad it cannot be good for you! I have switched a few of my friends over to Natures Botanical and they love it as well.” Mitchell Paterson

Great product

A nice gel creme that is easy to apply, especially the face areas. Only need a very small amount. Effective against black flies and March flies and sandflies. Can use it on ourselves. The horses don’t mind the lovely smell at all, whereas any chemical fly spray they run away.



Which Hole Size should I choose?

When choosing a hay net hole size, several factors should be considered. Here is a summary of the key points for each hole size mentioned:

20mm Sized Holes:

  • Suitable for "expert level" ponies that can eat from 30mm hay nets at impressive speeds.
  • Recommended for horses or ponies that have mastered eating from a 30mm hay net.
  • Ideal for feeding Lucerne to greedy horses or ponies.

30mm Sized Holes:

  • Great for voracious eaters, such as ponies, minis, and horses familiar with slow feed hay nets.
  • Laminitic horses usually benefit from 30mm sized hay nets.
  • Relieves boredom for stabled horses or as a backup net for when the first hay net empties.
  • Recommended for gutzy horses, ponies, or livestock, especially with palatable hay or slow feed experience.
  • Not commonly used for goats, cows, or sheep, but some may use it with palatable hay.

40mm Sized Holes:

  • The most popular hole size for slow feeding, accepted by over 90% of horses.
  • Suitable for slightly stalky hay, providing hay-saving benefits and increasing hay longevity.

60mm Sized Holes:

  • Ideal for saving on hay without significant restriction.
  • Commonly used with low-sugar or coarse and stalky hay, great for older horses and cattle.
  • Suitable for pregnant broodmares or younger horses where slow feeding is unnecessary.
  • Caution: Ensure hoof size is larger than netting size for horse safety.

General Considerations:

  • GutzBusta 40mm holes are a good starting point, with flexibility to go up or down in size.
  • Weather and hay type can influence the suitable hole size.
  • Palatability determines the hole size, with more palatable hay allowing for smaller holes.
  • Horse's health status, weight, and workload should be considered when choosing a hole size.
  • 40mm and 60mm sizes are suitable for saving on wastage, while 30mm slows down eating.
  • Monitor horse's response when introducing a new hay net to avoid over-facing.
  • Different livestock can use various hole sizes, with 40mm being common.
  • Different hole sizes are used throughout the year, for various hays, health conditions, and weight management.
  • Be cautious with shod horses and use appropriate hay rings/feeder to prevent entanglement.

Knotless vs Knotted

Our Knotted and knotless hay nets are made from UV-stabilized polyethylene netting and have been in use for 8 years. They come in various ply sizes and are tough, durable, and easily repairable. They have been used by many horses and can last 2 to 6 years. Knotted nets are suitable for soaking hay and do not take on the weight of water. They are available in black and offer hole sizes of 30mm, 40mm, and 60mm.

On the other hand, the knotless hay nets are made from high-strength, UV Stabilised polypropylene and have been available since 2019. They are softer and do take on some weight when soaked. The deluxe knotless nets are considered more luxurious and have become popular due to their softness. They are the strongest on the market with 240 ply and come in hole sizes of 20mm, 30mm, 40mm, and 60mm. Knotless nets are also only available in black.

When it comes to strength and longevity, there isn't a significant difference between knotted and knotless nets. Both types have proven to be tough, durable, and long-lasting. While some horses may prefer one material over the other, there is no way to predict which will suit an individual horse better without trying them. Ultimately, the lifespan of the nets depends on the individual horse and usage. Knotted nets have been used for 2 to 6 years without needing repairs, while the lifespan of knotless nets is still unknown after 3 years of use.
