The product will be distributed by SmartPak, which is the largest retailer of equestrian products in the United States; SmartPak will commercialise and distribute OutSmart Fly Spray throughout the USA. 

It is the first TyraTech product to be used directly on animals, thus opening up a whole new sector of the animal health market to TyraTech.

The insect repellent is powered by TyraTech’s Nature Technology, which is the core technology behind the company’s Guardian range of insect repellent products.

Outsmart Fly Spray is designed to be effective against house flies, stable flies, mosquitoes and ticks. The formula is non-toxic and is free of permethrin, pyrethroids, pyrethrins, and DEET, making it safe and effective for both horses and riders. 

“Our distribution arrangement, in which SmartPak is responsible for the promotion and distribution of OutSmart, provides us with a rapid, efficient and economical route to market,” said Bruno Jactel, chief executive officer of TyraTech.

“We have always promoted the breadth of the potential uses and applications of our core technology, and whilst our main focus remains strongly on our lead Vamousse brand, broadening our portfolio and application base in partnership with a major company like SmartPak is very much adding further strength to our business," he added.

Donnie Steele, chief marketing officer at SmartPak, said there is a definite market need for an effective and safe fly repellent for horses and riders.

“We look forward to strengthening our relationship with TyraTech and extending our product offering using TyraTech's innovation platform,” Steele said.

Shares in TyraTech rose 1.1% to 4.80p in the first hour of trading.
