The orginal horse fly deterrents - captures 90-95% of the flies

Horse flies are a constant nuisance, especially in the period May - October. Their larvae hibernate in humid environments such as watercourses, lakes, ponds or swamps. Adult horse flies appear in April and then become a nuisance for horses, cattle and humans. When they feed on blood, their aggressive stings are considered very painful. For both animals (such as horses, cows) and people, it is not a pleasant feeling. The orginal horse fly traps effectively controls the number of horse flies and reduces them to an absolute minimum. The trap is set up outside and works without the use of chemicals and / or electricity.

How does it work?
The horse fly finds its prey with the eyes - not with the sense of smell. The horse flies are attracted by the movement of the ball in the wind and by the heat generated by solar radiation. They confuse the black ball with a living animal, such as a horse. Once they are positioned on the black ball, they will investigate it and try to sting it. Since the horse fly are among the few animals that fly upwards, the horse fly automatically gets into a centrally placed collection bin from which they cannot break out and drown.

How to get the most out of the trap

  • In order to maximize the success of catching the flies, set the preferred trap between the humid areas (such as ponds, river banks, etc.) and the areas where humans and animals reside.
  • Place the brake catch (s) between these areas, placing them closer to the places where the animals are located.
  • Place the trap early, preferably just before the horse flies fly in April.
  • Check the traps weekly, empty or fill with soapy water if necessary.
  • If the brake trap does not catch a sufficient number of flies, and you are certain that adult flies exist, change the location of the trap.
