So, I'm guessing that these predators wouldn't work for them, but look forward to finding out the definitive answer on that question. We were severely plagued with the buggers this year.

Ladybug our cow is blind in 1 eye because of a complication of a disease a fly infected her with that happened before we owned her, but we still take the fly problem seriously. Flies cause your animals discomfort, can weaken their health, and slow production. They need to be controlled as best as possible on your homestead.

We have heard many of you speak of the benefits of using a biological control in the form of tiny parasitic wasps and how they have been the answer to controlling biting horse flies. Curious to know more about our potential competition, we did some research and found that biological control will not affect horse fly populations.
