Q. What insect attaches little yellow eggs to horse hair.
What product can be used to remove them?
A.   Most likely, the yellow eggs that are found on the fur of horses are botfly eggs. Unfortunately, we do not have many resources on botflies since they are parasitic insects. You will have to contact your veterinarian. We do know that the eggs can be combed off but we will not be able to give you a definitive answer.

Q. Horse flies around an apartment complex pool?
Today the flies were awful! Chasing everyone around. They're about 1-2 inches long and disgusting. Is there something to use that's safe for kids and other people to be around that will make these flies go away? Just the buzzing gives me the creeps!
A.   If they are 1-2 inches long, we do not believe them to be horseflies. They are most likely a different insect pest. In order for us to recommend the correct insecticide to apply, we need an accurate identification of the pest. Please take a sample to a local pest control management company or an entomologist and they will be able to assist you in identifying the pest.

Q. Horse flys are in my house. We kill 2 to 5 daily. I dont know were they are coming from.
A.   If there is a specific area in which you are mostly seeing their activity. I would recommend that you use a residual spray and spray on the surfaces in which the flies are most likely to land at some point. Baiting flies is another option. Maxforce fly spot bait is a very powerful fly bait which will also do an excellent job in exterminating them. Likewise, this product is recommended to be put in areas where most of the fly activity can be found.

Q. Protecting kids from deer and horse flies around the pool
Our pool is in the worst environment possible. Lots of vegetation, and just up the hill from a creek. The horse and deer flies have made the pool area unbearable for the wife and kids. I don't have the option of moving the pool away from the swamp-like conditions, so I'm left with trying to control the flies.
A.   The only thing we can recommend using is the Maxforce Fly Bait stations and placing them around the pool areas. This will attract the flies and kill them once the ingest the bait.

Q. Is there a certain mouth were the horse flies out and do they ever die down
A.   Horse flies are usually active the most during warm, sunny days in the summer and early fall. It is impractical to eliminate them because their breeding grounds are located on wetlands or along ponds and streams. Fortunately, they are not an ongoing issue throughout the year due to their sporadic activity.
