Why Fight Flies?

Fly control keeps your horse comfortable. But that’s not the only reason to minimize flies. Flies and other biting insects pose a major health risk to your horse and you. Flies carry a number of dangerous diseases that become more of a problem as fly populations increase. Flies live, feed and breed in filth, where germs, bacteria and communicable diseases thrive. Good hygiene is critical to keeping flies and other filthy problems under control.

Start With A Strategy

Start your fly control program early to keep fly populations down all season. It’s easier and more economical to prevent a heavy fly build-up than to fight it. Effective fly control means eliminating flies on all fronts, at all stages in the fly life cycle. Eliminating immature flies reduces the number of biting, breeding adult flies you have to deal with. No single fly product will solve your fly control problem. You need an overall plan to get rid of flies where they live, feed and breed. For maximum effectiveness, attack flies on all fronts: on your horse, in the barn and around outdoor areas.

Pastured Horses
Protect Against Ticks
Ticks are a vector of Lyme disease and other illnesses. Horses ridden through wooded areas or turned out to pasture are exposed to these nasty bloodsuckers. Read the label to make sure the fly spray or topical product you use protects your horse against ticks.

Indoor & Outdoor Areas

Proper fly control in the barn eliminates immature and adult flies. Because flies breed in manure and other moist, decaying organic matter, keep your barn as clean as possible. Products to use to control flies in the barn include feed-thru fly control products, premise sprays and sticky traps.

Eliminate fly breeding in outdoor areas by keeping areas clean and free of manure and other trash. Products for outdoor fly control include feed-thru fly control products, scatter baits and insecticide-free bag and jug traps.

Feed-thru Fly Control
Feed-thru fly control is an effective method of managing flies. Feed-thrus work by controlling flies in and around the barn as they stop flies from maturing into biting, breeding adults. They are highly successful when used in conjunction with conventional methods of fly control such as premise sprays and sticky tapes.
