Where do horse flies live?

Horse flies, the bane of every horse and rider, live in almost every part of the world. They're attracted to large, moving animals - horses being a prime target. They are especially prevalent in warm, humid climates and tend to breed in wet, marshy areas. This means that horses out at pasture in the UK summer are prime targets for these persistent pests. Keep your equine friends protected with our top-quality range of horse fly protection products.

What does a horse fly look like?

For those wondering what a horse fly looks like, we've got a detailed image and description on our blog post, which you can find here. In a nutshell, horse flies are larger than a housefly, have sharp, biting mouthparts, and their eyes often exhibit a beautiful and distinctive iridescence. Don't let their beauty fool you though - they're a real menace!

Are horse fly masks without ears still effective?

Yes, horse fly masks without ears can still be effective, especially if your horse is less bothered by flies around the ears. However, if your horse is sensitive to horse flies, a mask with ear coverings might be more beneficial. Each horse is unique, and we have a variety of options in our collection to cater to every need. But remember, masks are only part of the solution; a good horse fly spray will work wonders too.

Does mosquito repellent work on horseflies?

Mosquito repellent may not be the best solution against horse flies. Horse flies are hardier and more aggressive than mosquitoes, and they may not be deterred by products designed for mosquitoes. Instead, try our NAF NAF OFF Citronella Spray or the Leovet Power Phaser Durativ C/W Sponge. Both are specially designed to keep horse flies at bay.

How can you tell a horsefly from a regular fly?

Horse flies are generally larger and more robust than regular flies. They have large, bright eyes and their wings are usually clear or slightly tinted. On the other hand, regular flies are usually smaller and darker with densely packed hair-like structures. You'll find more details on our blog. Don't let the nuisance of horse flies bother your horse - try our Carr & Day & Martin Flygard Extra Strength Insect Repellent for effective relief.

Are horse fly bites dangerous?

Horse fly bites can be quite painful and, in rare cases, can cause allergic reactions. They cut into the skin rather than pierce it, which can lead to infections if not properly cared for. It's always better to prevent these bites with proper horse fly protection. Our collection includes top-notch products that have proven to be effective in fly protection.
