How do you get rid of horseflies?
Or just to improve this answer a little, you could go and buy some fly spray? Its quite cheap and you can get it at all local tack shops near you :) if your horse has a problem with flys in his/hers ears i'd recommend you get the fly gel as you can rub that in there ears or you can just spray a small amout on your hand and rub AROUND the ear, not in. Hope this helped :)
Horseflies are meat eaters. They bite to tear a chunk of flesh off you in order to feed. Whether horseflies are useful at all I don't know. They are probably just another meal in the food chain........... horseflies are not meat eaters, only the female horse fly bites and they do this as they need a blood meal to be able to reproduce, horse flies normally bite mammals but there are some species that bite…
usually if you have a dog or live on a farm with livestock. also, make sure that you don't have any trash or food just laying around. clean the counter tops and check windows and caulk around doors for a way for them to get in. you can by fly tape, insect repellent that kills them, or an old fashioned flyswatter to get rid of them. good luck:)
Combine mint flavored mouthwash, lemon dish soap and lemon ammonia in equal parts. Put the mixture into a spray bottle and spray your yard.

Put on an ointment to lessen the swelling, and don't scratch the bite, or it may become infected. After that, cover up the bite to prevent bacteria from entering the bite. Horseflies usually come out on sunny, hot, and dry days around water, and people, so be careful!
These flies are called Horseflies, These Horseflies find a way into your house from outside and don't like leaving. These things also bite so I suggest spraying them on site. The only reason they want in is because there is something quite delectable in your home. I suggest locating there feeding sources and any nesting places. They usually nest in moist, food-heavy areas.
Horseflies are Stalking You Unlike mosquitoes, horse flies do not breed in water, they lay there eggs in animal feces or carcasses as well as moist deadwood. Horse flies live in the bush and are attracted to movement. When a horse fly senses (sees) you are around it stalks you like your its prey. If you just walked through the bush to get to your boat dock, they will follow you there. If you are…
