Biting Stable Fly

You Should Know About The Biting Stable Fly

Stable Flies are not attracted to “odor” traps, but to specially designed Stable Fly Traps. This is the fly you'll see on the forelegs and flanks of your horses so if you have horses stomping, it's these. Biting Stable Flies reproduce in horse manure, but also spoiled vegetation without any manure like old round bales or grass clipping. Learn more helpful tips about the biting stable fly.
