When 6 concentrations of deet (3.75–75%) were applied aerosols to cattle and horses to determine their effect as repellents for biting flies, the protection was proportional to the concentration. Thus, cattle were protected from stable flies, Stomoxys calcitrans (L.), for a maximum of 4 hours by 50 or 75% concentrations and from certain tabanids by a 75% concentration. Horses sprayed with the 75% concentration were protected from certain tabanids for as much as 3 hours. However, cattle sprayed with the higher concentrations salivated excessively and had a nasal discharge. Horses sprayed with the higher concentrations exhibited exfoliation on several body regions
